Sometimes difficult experiences make us feel like we are stuck in quicksand; the more we try to breakout, the further down we fall. Experiences we live through affect how we relate to others and how we feel about ourselves. My goal as a psychologist is to help give you strategies to escape the quicksand.

You feel isolated, misunderstood...lonely. You’ve been told you’re “too much,” “too sensitive,” or “intense.” You feel frozen in profound suffering. You feel that no one has seen the real you and have a sense that there are parts of yourself that maybe you haven’t seen. Hiding yourself has become unbearable, but you don’t know where to start or who to go to for help making sense of your complex inner world and experiences. We can be deeply wounded in relationships, past and current, but it is also in relationships that we find healing.

I work with individuals who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” or have felt misunderstood or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional families or partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too much, too sensitive, too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I do not seek to ‘fix’ clients. Instead, we will work collaboratively to discover and align with your inner wisdom.

My identities as a queer, non-monogamous, sex- and kink-positive, immigrant woman tend to attract potential clients who share some of these positionalities. I am an especially good fit for those who would like to work through challenges related to their identity, acculturation, sexuality, gender expression, relationship formation, and early traumas.

I utilize a holistic and relational approach that is compassionate, strength-based and trauma-informed to help you achieve your goals.

I attune to issues of systemic oppression such as racism, patriarchy, capitalism, colonization, ableism, fatphobia, and other forms of structural violence and its related traumas. As a queer, non-binary child of immigrants, I am familiar with bi-cultural experience and with gender/sexual diversity. I am experienced in working with kink/BDSM & non-monogamy.

It can be difficult to take up emotional space in our every day lives. Therapy is your space for your emotional experience; a space to be held and seen as a whole and complex being. I view therapy as a journey into self-actualization. I believe that fostering self-awareness is one of the most important and beneficial aspects of effective psychotherapy. Through the development of your increased self-awareness we can reframe and shed light on your internal and external struggles. This way you can be an active participant in your own healing as you work toward an enhanced sense of empowerment and self-agency.

As a strengths-focused clinician, I want to know in what areas you excel. Identifying and leveraging what’s already working well is just as important as naming and healing what’s hurting. I whole-heartedly believe in the abilities we all possess. I also understand that life’s strains and stressors have a way of casting dark shadows over our strengths, eclipsing them and causing us to feel hopeless, at times. I can help you navigate these difficulties by building on your strengths and personal values; we will use this process as a catalyst for growth.

Many of my clients' lives don't align with societal norms, either intentionally coloring outside the lines or struggling to fit in. Folks may find themselves overwhelmed, dealing with big emotions, the effects of complex or single-event trauma, complex medical issues, or chronic pain. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ - including trans kids and their families, disabled, and neurodiverse populations.

BIPOC and QTBIPOC and others on the margins are often unheard and actively silenced in a society that promotes white supremacy, heteronormativity and propagates the idea that only certain bodies and identities are valuable. I believe that we all deserve to be seen, to be heard and to be valued. Black women-identified people have a unique experience of oppression at the intersection of race and gender. We experience racism, sexism and misogynoir. Black women are often silenced, shut down, marginalized and told our feelings do not matter because we have to “be strong.”

As someone navigating the world between cultures, ethnicities, and labels, you have been given the gift of insight, adaptability, and attunement. You can see what others don't, and are highly sensitive to what goes unspoken or unacknowledged. The gift of being adaptable in any environment can be a major strength, and it also presents a challenge.  ​When we are highly skilled at anticipating, understanding, and accommodating the feelings and needs of others, it is easy to lose sight of what is most important for our own physical, mental, and emotional well being.
