Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am providing TeleHealth (videoconferencing) sessions using a secure, HIPAA-compliant online server.
It takes strength & courage to acknowledge personal shortcomings, painful experiences, & life stressors. I commend you for seeking professional help & I would be honored to be part of your journey of healing & self-improvement. I am a licensed clinical psychologist, lesbian, woman of color, & person with chronic health issues. I believe that, in addition to my professional training, these multiple identities & life experiences have enabled me to understand & help a variety of therapy clients. My therapeutic style is collaborative, egalitarian, & non-judgmental. The most significant aspect of treatment is our relationship.
I strive to create a safe space where individuals can process their life experiences, figure out who they are / what they value & develop healthier coping skills. I have experience working with individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds & nationalities. As a staff psychologist in university counseling centers, I specialized in treating young adults.
I have helped clients address struggles with anxiety, depression, self-injury, low self-esteem, lesbian/gay/bisexual & transgender identity issues, family relationship difficulties, & eating disorders / negative body image. Lastly, I utilize a wellness / mind-body perspective in helping individuals process receiving medical diagnoses & learning to cope with chronic health conditions.
