Addressing difficulties in relationships, transitions, change and trauma as well as depression, anxiety, stress and chronic/acute illness are my areas of expertise. Change is difficult and transitions can be challenging. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming or out of control, and asking for help can be really difficult, even scary. It's common to feel overwhelmed, confused, or lost in an emotional place that feels endless with no escape. I am here to provide a safe space where we can work together to help you find a way out and build a path forward toward healing, balance, happiness and meaning.

The lotus flower is the only flower that seeds and blooms simultaneously. The lotus is rooted in muddy water, developing in the midst of thick struggle and obstacles. When the lotus emerges, it cleans the water, transforming its environment. This is where it blooms seeking the light of the sun while sending out seeds of possibility into the world. The lotus symbolizes cause and effect teaching us that each action we take will produce a result and that we contain all the material needed to mend/heal unresolved wounds and traumas.

Making the decision to start therapy can come with apprehension. I believe your best judgement guided you to search for the right therapist. I have a direct and compassionate style of working with children, adolescents, college students, and adults. I assist clients in reducing anxiety and depression in order to feel confident, achieve a healthier sense of self, and live in accordance to their values. I believe honoring one's intuition is the key to healing- whether that be through play therapy, creative art interventions, or talk therapy. I enjoy helping others explore their identity and to accept various parts of themselves.

In my global approach to therapy, I empower clients to tap into their own ideas around healing--things that perhaps they've lost touch with when sadness and stress set in. My clients tend to be individuals, couples, and teens with minority identity (ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) seeking support, and also those for whom race, culture, language, and social justice are important. I have weekend availability to accommodate work schedules and families with children in school. I also conduct therapy in Spanish.

I believe in drawing upon my clients' inherent strengths and sense of resiliency. I am particularly interested in the link between the body and mind, and enjoy teaching my clients practical tools to help improve their daily lives.

It allows for there to be space to sit with our innermost thoughts and feelings as we bear witness to the courageous process towards renewal and growth.

Thank you for making your emotional and mental well-being a priority. Change takes time, is difficult, and can be scary but is ultimately, liberating and transformative. When we make changes in our lives, we open ourselves up to growth and new possibilities.
