I believe that people have the capacity for amazing feats of growth and change and as a psychologist my role is to partner with my clients as they take this great journey. Change and growth are not always easy, doing something different than what you used to can feel overwhelming. I am here to provide a affirming, culturally humble, supportive, safe, nonjudgmental therapeutic environment that allows for you to further explore the issues you are struggling with and to make the most effective changes to better handle life's challenges, while also striving toward living a meaningful and fulfilling life.
I might be a good fit if you are want to explore: life adjustments/personal growth/grief, anxiety/depression, chronic medical conditions, and want to go deeper in exploring your areas for growth. I am extensively trained (two decades of experience) in trauma treatments and have a particular expertise working with high functioning adults with traumatic pasts.
I have great passion for the work I do and am dedicated to helping clients achieve their therapeutic goals and more meaningful life experiences. My clients tell me that my genuineness, openness, acceptance, and ability to connect with them as a unique individual, is what sets me apart from their experiences with other therapists.

I use a culturally humble, relational, attachment based approach to my therapy. Your first few sessions will be about starting to understand you as an individual. Where do you come from, where do you want to be and go? What and who is important to you? Where are you struggling? Therapy will explore these from an emotional and supportive space to gain insight and get unstuck in struggle spots.
