About

I specialize in therapy for anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life transitions, and multicultural identity concerns. I also focus on relational difficulties in the context of career and dating, as well as peer, marital, and family relationships. I use various evidence-based techniques and relational approaches, but I will always tailor therapy to fit who you are, what matters to you, and how you hope to grow. In therapy, I strive to authentically connect with you and ensure a therapeutic space that is safe and productive. Going at your pace, we work together to find solutions and move towards your goals.
Part of our work may include identifying unhelpful thoughts and/or reactions that keep you stuck. We will strive to find creative solutions and alternative ways to navigate your life. Our work together will equip you with new learned skills, gain new perspectives, and help you feel better on a daily basis.
We may also reflect on relationships and pinpoint patterns that keep you from truly enjoying or connecting with others. I aim to help you find clarity, healing, and resolve difficulties with support, so you can cultivate fulfilling relationships. I'd love for us to connect and answer questions you may have, so I invite you to reach out! (Email is preferred).
