About

You feel anxious, worried, or overwhelmed, and it feels like you cannot engage fully in your life. Your mind frequently judges you by telling you that, “you are not good enough”. You try to push through but you feel stuck, frozen, and alone. Relationships feel like a struggle because it’s hard for you to express how you truly feel but you long to create connections with what matters to you. You can gain this connection! You do not have to do this alone. Together, we will develop strategies to help you manage painful experiences.
You don’t have to live in the past or in the future, you can live in the present and build confidence. In therapy, we will explore the beliefs that are holding you back and learn to cope with painful feelings. I work from a culturally humble perspective and am trained in EMDR. I invite and welcome all parts of people's identity in my work.
It takes courage to reach out in the midst of painful experiences. If you are ready to embark on a path of change, email me to book your free 15-minute, no-obligation, consultation today. Start your journey towards healing!
