As you’re looking for a therapist, it’s important to find someone you feel comfortable opening up to, and maybe even sharing aspects of your life that are hard to discuss. My clients often go there with me quickly; they can tell that I will be warm, supportive, nonjudgmental, and honor their trust. My approach to therapy is multicultural, LGBTQ+ affirming, sex/kink positive, and I have a background working with first gen people. Clients who want to better understand and express their emotions have found therapy with me helpful for learning communication and skills they weren’t taught growing up.

“We don’t have to do it all alone, we were never meant to.”-Brene Brown. Therapy provides clients with a safe space to process one’s life challenges, gain a deeper understanding of themselves, and accomplish goals. My role as a therapist is to provide clients with a warm, comforting, and non-judgmental environment; a space that feels safe to share one’s story. I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients, not making changes for you, but rather supporting you in coping with life’s stressors.
