It’s hard to tell what's “normal” when it comes to trauma and culture. Is it normal to question your reality and feel angry and defensive when other people don’t understand you? What parts of you do you leave behind and which do you keep? Is it normal for interracial or multi-cultural couples to have trouble articulating their norms or understanding their partner's? After all, how much of it is culture and how much is just... us? I enjoy and have success helping clients explore their realities while questioning which parts of it they want to keep and change.

Self-knowledge is a lifelong journey. The ideal client is one who has willingness to move inward toward deeper understanding. This most effectively occurs as we explore ourselves in relationship to others. The fit between you and your therapist is fundamental to this process. It is imperative for a client to feel safe and supported by their therapist in order to tolerate and receive the compassionate honesty and gentle confronting which are the keys to this transformative work. If you are willing and ready to confront your light and shadow, I welcome you to move inward, together. I provide psychotherapy and sex therapy.

Choosing a therapist is an important decision. In my experience, the best therapeutic work happens when there is a strong relationship between you and your therapist. I believe that healing happens when you are able to share your inner world with another person and feel safe and supported doing so. My goal is to create an environment where you feel seen, heard, cared for, and understood. Processing your experiences in therapy helps to deepen self-awareness, and can positively impact your mood, functioning, and interpersonal relationships.
