About

In my work as a therapist, I guide my clients toward a self-awareness journey that is centered in sustained wellness. The majority of my recent work has involved clients whose mental health is impacted by systems of oppression. It is important to me, as a mental health professional, to cultivate deep attunement to the unique needs of individuals who identify themselves as belonging to historically excluded communities. I am committed to staying engaged with liberation efforts that amplify my scope of practice in the interest of consciousness expansion and healing.
My practice reinforces a wholesome approach to mental health that takes into account each client's unique needs and stage of life. Mindfulness, art therapy, insight-oriented cognitive re-structuring, and the use of strategic behavioral and somatic oriented interventions make-up the core of my work.
If you are interested in a nurturing & safe space for processing and working through life's natural shifts and unexpected challenges, I would love to meet you! The clients I work with are typically seeking support related to their experiences with trauma, depression, anxiety, and identity issues. ​
