We all have moments of feeling isolated and “stuck.” This can stem from the difference between what your life looks like now and how you would like it to be. The stress of this disconnection can seep into all aspects of your world: socially withdrawing or getting into more arguments can lead to depression and relationship conflict. You might feel like what you do is never “good enough,” increasing anxiety. You might hide your stress by focusing on what you can control, particularly after traumatic events. Therapy can help bring back joy and spontaneity into your life, helping you feel more fulfilled and energized.
I work with individuals and relationship partners to provide anti-oppressive, culturally-attuned, and identity-affirming therapy rooted in psychological research. My work always centers your unique social and cultural context and your personal values. Together, we can explore the underlying roots of what maintains stress in your life.
By gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and developing effective coping strategies, we can free you from the cycles of stress that have kept you stuck. My goal is to help you strengthen the meaningful connections in your life and make your world feel bigger as you embody the version of yourself that feels most like you.
