I have an extensive experience of 15 years in providing psychotherapy and counseling services to individuals of all ages, from childhood to older adulthood. If you or someone you know is struggling with chronic anxiety, persistent depression, past traumas, life transitions, feelings of disconnection, substance abuse, or an unrelenting inner critic, please contact me. I can assist you in increasing your confidence, resolving emotional pain, gaining personal insight, and creating a fulfilling life worth living. Don't let these issues hold you back - take charge of your life today.
I am an experienced therapist with specialized training in family therapy, couples counseling, trauma recovery, and anxiety disorders. My approach to psychotherapy is integrated, and I have received training in various therapeutic modalities, including Brainspotting, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Functional Analytic Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy.
I specialize in working with queer, trans, and neurodivergent communities, addiction, mood disorders, and trauma. I prioritize strong therapeutic relationships and never recommend techniques for mental health recovery unless I feel safe using them myself.

I work with clients who frequently experience emotions such as loneliness, isolation, and insecurity due to difficult past life events, anxiety, or trauma. Initially, our sessions will concentrate on examining how you respond to your emotions and personal experiences. Later, we will start incorporating active exercises in the sessions to bring about a positive transformation in the way you feel.

I primarily rely on emotion-focused therapy (EFT) and functional analytic therapy (FAP) to bring about lasting emotional change by cultivating emotional awareness, courage to take emotional risks, and a greater capacity for love. I also incorporate other healing modalities as needed for the best outcome, for example, Brainspotting, DBT skills work, and Reiki.
