I welcome people from all backgrounds, and I specialize in working with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and those with multi-cultural and/or immigrant backgrounds.
Welcome! My fundamental objective as a therapist is to help clients find and deepen connection – with others as well as with themselves. I seek to co-create warm and well-boundaried relationships that are grounded in safety, healthy attachment and non-judgement. I take an integrative and tailored approach to each client, which takes into account both my own clinical impressions and the client’s interests as well. My practice is informed by tenets of DBT and CBT, as well as mindfulness and somatic techniques. I also work within a strengths-based, trauma-informed lens.

I also hold space in my practice for sexual empowerment, pleasures, and kink amongst BIPOC and disabled communities.
As a Multiracial, Black, Queer, Disabled Woman, I hold a strong relational and cultural lens in my practice. I view behaviors and trauma through the foundation of who you are; in relationship to one's self and others. Identity and culture impact how we walk through the world, and how we heal through it. I also hold a strong lens for tapping into your inner child, healing childhood wounds and pains. What unmet childhood need is blocking your healing? Let's explore, and reclaim your sense of safety and joy together.

**Accepting New Clients** These are times of upheaval. Political turmoil, COVID, climate chaos, & violence on BIPOC reinforced by our systems. Isolation induced depression. Overwhelm, numbness, & agitation with systems and/or police brutality. Despair w/ job and wage insecurity & loss. Lowered immunity & illness exacerbated by chronic fear, anxiety, oppression, & exhaustion. Unprocessed grief & anticipatory grief. In this time of great systems upheaval, we need to be intentional & creative in (re)connecting w/ each other & ourselves, families, and communities. We need mending to sustain & to (re)imagine what is possible!!!

*Please note, I'm not currently accepting new clients. Are you a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) who feels overwhelmed by the current racial and political climate? Are you struggling to feel good about yourself? Do you focus so much energy on caring for everyone else that your own needs get pushed aside? If you feel stuck repeating challenging patterns in your relationships, know that you are not alone. Let's work together to support you in becoming more balanced, self-confident, and intentional.

My work centers BIPOC -identified individuals, couples, and families, and I will honor all of the diverse aspects of your identity.
You can be free from the patterns and struggles that keep you from living fully, authentically, and joyfully. You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed by recent challenges or past traumas. Wherever you are in your journey, I can provide you with the support and tools to stay present while addressing ongoing issues such as anxiety, depression, limiting self-beliefs, harmful behaviors, or painful cycles in relationships. As we attend to these issues with compassion, you will begin to heal the disconnection from self, relationship wounds, family conflicts, and intergenerational trauma that may be at the root of these struggles.

I am particularly sensitive to the needs of those in marginalized communities such as BIPOC , LGBTQIA+ community, women, and youth.
Being human can be hard, especially right now. With consistent support, there can be a little more ease. When you work with me, you get a woman with a big heart, a keen mind, and a clarity of purpose. It is my mission to hold space for you to feel safe to sit with big emotions, and to express whatever is in you that needs to be let out. There is a way to a more joyful life, and I will support you in the process. I help you get in touch with your inner truths and pains. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self.

I enjoy working with people who hold multicultural and marginalized identities, including women and BIPOC .
Navigating life's circumstances and challenges can take up a lot of space in our lives. Maybe you are looking for more spaciousness, more time for yourself, or an extra ear to listen to and fully "get" you. Or perhaps anxiety or depression has become a constant presence, and you desire a change and want more connection. Sharing our experiences with others provides an opportunity to feel understood. In a therapeutic relationship, we explore patterns and coping strategies to better form a picture of how we operate in the world. It can help us identify what is and isn't working towards getting your needs met more fully.

Specialties include: college students & young professionals looking to find their place in the worlds of work and relationship; first generation immigrants, particularly BIPOC and South Asian Americans; adults who have (or had) a parent or a partner with severe mental illness; and adults looking to integrate psychological growth with spiritual exploration.
Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

If you are hoping to work with a mixed-race or BIPOC clinician, I would be a good fit.
The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way.

I work with clients of all cultural backgrounds and identities, especially with BIPOC , immigrants and LGBTQ clients.
*CURRENTLY NOT TAKING CLIENTS* Being human is hard. We are born in an unjust world, not taught how to feel, or be in healthy relationship with self and others. We understandably develop ways of coping with stress and uncertainty, that become painful and limiting with time. Psychotherapy can be a space to unlearn these ways that are harming you, including systemic ones, dive deep into yourself, to meet all the parts of you, heal past traumas, personal, cultural and intergenerational. The process will help you make life choices that align with your values, so you can live a more meaningful, joyful life, & build healthy relationships.

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.

I work with BIPOC and LGBTQ people whose experience of othering and marginalization has instilled anxiety, anger or shame and has become oppressive internalized beliefs about themselves and their self-worth.
You want to feel secure in your identity, loved in your relationships, and engaged in your career. Together we will explore, imagine, and create the life you desire. You want to stop the nagging voice inside your head telling you “you’re not good enough” or “something is wrong with you” or “you don’t deserve love.” Maybe you have a good career, family and friends, but you still feel self-doubt, anxiety or emptiness. Moments of happiness are followed by dread that everything will fall apart and you will wind up alone and sad. I can help you feel present and secure in your relationships and life, instead of hiding and faking it.
