About

No matter your age, identity, or life experience, you are worthy and deserving of a counseling experience that is safe, compassionate, equitable, accessible, and empowering for you. As a therapist, I'm here to walk with you through your journey and co-construct a plan that is unique to you and your needs, help you build upon your strengths, and create a space that honors who you are and the experiences that led you here.
Counseling is a deeply personal experience that isn't one-size-fits-all. My approach to counseling is eclectic and incorporates aspects of CBT, DBT, mindfulness practice, play therapy (for youth), and psychodynamic therapy. Though my treatment approach is eclectic, it's rooted in strengths-based, relational work that's anti-racist and culturally responsive.
I have worked in both community and school-based systems and have experience supporting young people and families through depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, crisis events, foster care, adoption, and legal/court systems. Wherever you may be in your journey, know that you don't have to walk through it alone.
