I am a LGBTQIA + affirming and specialize in helping clients understand themselves and experience whether issues be specific to their gender and identity or relationships with others.
Life is full of difficulty and uncertainty, as a therapist, I work towards creating a safe space for my clients to explore themselves and their relationships. I enjoy working with individuals and couples to help them heal through self discovery. My hope is to provide them with the necessary understanding to create change and minimize suffering. I invite my clients to explore their earliest relationships to help them identify how those experiences may be impacting their current life. I believe by bringing awareness to what is uncounsious, my clients will have a better opportunity to make healthier lasting change with understanding.

Further, I can relate in many ways the struggles of both BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) and LGBTQ + individuals who are not able to live their genuine, authentic self due to societal, religious, and cultural values and messages.
Life can feel overwhelming when you’re under constant stress, whether it be work-related, family conflict, relationship trouble, or dealing with your inner conflict and fears. Maybe you are not able to live your true authentic self because of the messages and values placed on you by your culture, religion, and society. You want to be seen and heard as your true genuine self and break free from the messages and values that chained you from living your full authentic self.

I’ve worked with many diverse groups, including people of color and the LGBTQ + community.
Let’s not waste any more time being unhappy, unfulfilled, and stuck. To thrive as people, we need to recognize our values and goals. Those values and goals change throughout time, as we age. Change is constant. That makes a lot of people uncomfortable. But it’s time to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable means you’re growing. Being uncomfortable means you’re challenging yourself. And before we get too far, I am not talking about inappropriate discomfort. I will teach you the difference. If you are too afraid of change, to embrace change, I probably will not be the right fit for you as a therapist.

I'm queer and nonbinary, and am a mindful coparent to three teens/tweens.
You may be feeling overwhelmed by struggles with relationships, work, or identity. I can help you turn your own loving attention toward these unhealed wounded areas so that you can experience relief and begin to thrive. I'm a good fit for those feeling stalled in their growth, those seeking wholeness or rebuilding their trust with themselves, couples doing reconciliation work or struggling with coparenting, LGBTQIA folks and/or their parents... and honestly? I'd also love to be a therapist for other therapists in search of any of the above. We are all growing and healing. Teletherapy also available to folks in CA.

Are you letting your emotions rule your life? Do you make decisions based on how you feel rather than what is best for you? If you answered YES then Cognitive Therapy can help you change your thinking and create the life you are seeking. Whether you are struggling with depression, panic attacks or going through life transitions, I can help you learn necessary skills to make your life a journey rather than a struggle. I feel priviledged having the opportunity to work with individuals, teach them CBT and see them transform right in front of me.

Discernment Counseling is a new and innovative short-term therapy (just 1-5 sessions) that is designed for couples who are not sure, or cannot agree, whether to work on their marriage or consider divorce. This is not traditional marriage counseling - my goal is to help you and your spouse gain clarity and confidence about a direction for your relationship in order to decide whether to recommit to marriage, move toward divorce, or maintain the status quo.

The primary responsibilities of the therapist is to listen, be non-judgmental, have compassion, ability to identify the core and heart of conflictual issues, and be directive in helping the client to embark on their own self-healing and self-transformation journey. At the same time to help the client become proactive and empowered in attaining control in their lives...to have freedom of choices. To become their own "therapist." I believe that everyone can tap into themselves and be their own healer.
