Have you been told that you, or your child, have so much potential, if only....? Mainstream education is designed to teach to the center of the normative curve. But, what if you or your child are better represented by the edges? What if you are really strong in some areas, but have a weakness in others? What if you have excitabilities and interests, but find it difficult to focus on less desirable tasks? Are you unsure about where your child falls academically after the pandemic? We offer screenings, assessment, educational therapy, and counseling for individuals ages birth through adulthood. Let us help you move forward.

Do you wonder if your child might benefit from special education services? Or if they need therapy? Do you wonder if your child is functioning at a level that is comparable to children within their peer group? Having a Psychological Assessment or Psycho-Ed Evaluation can help you learn how to help your child develop and grow in a safe manner and give your family answers to the above.

I have worked with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

In my practice, I actively include all your layers: LGBTQ2S+, BIPOC/QPOC/AAPI, spirituality, Autism , and all other experiences.
Are you wanting to feel better once and for all? Maybe you can't move on from the past or you're worried about your future. If anxiety, panic, or even depression is stealing your joy, I get it. If traditional talk therapy hasn't helped you feel better, it's time to try a new approach to heal at the source of your pain. For 12 years I have refined my approach through professional training and experience in Relational-gestalt therapy and Brainspotting (derived from EMDR) while centering social justice and trauma-informed care.
