"Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate. To see things creatively is to see symptoms as keys to recovery and radical healing. Before I was a therapist, I was a visual artist and writer. So not only have I been able to see things through a critical lens, I learned to appreciate imagery, symbolism and metaphor in life. "

"Is anxiety or depression weighing you down? Do you feel overwhelmed or hopeless with stressful relationships? Do you habitually use substances or addictions to avoid painful feelings? Do you find yourself taking care of everyone but yourself? You don't have to suffer anymore. Therapy can be a transformative and empowering experience that brings peace-of-mind and lasting change. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety and connectedness where you can share all parts of yourself and feel truly accepted. You will learn skills and identify patterns that no longer serve you. You can live your life with more authenticity and ease!"

"All emotional wounding happens in a larger context. We are all embedded in relationships, families, cultural identities community and institutional values. Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness. Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others, and are willing to engage in personal inquiry in an environment of connection? "
