I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, parents, and adult individuals. Life is hard, and we all experience stressors that cause us to fall out of sync with one another or ourselves. My goal is to help you, your child, or your family feel better equipped and empowered to cope with those stressors. EMDR is a wonderful modality I use during the treatment process to quicken the healing process. I also provide clinical supervision for associates accruing their hours.

I approach therapy from an attachment-based and wholistic perspective, exploring each aspect of what makes you, you: your relationships, emotions, environment, and spirituality.
Life experiences can impact us in surprising, often difficult, and even traumatic ways leaving us feeling out of touch with ourselves and those around us. We all have a desire to feel understood, and that journey often begins within ourselves. My goal in therapy is to create a space where you feel heard and safe while we explore deeper into who you are and begin to wrestle with the question “where do I go from here?”.

I specialize in attachment-based , solution focused therapy.
It takes courage to set up your first therapy appointment, and it can be challenging to find the “right fit” in a therapist. With the right fit, you can determine: the struggles you have and ways to overcome them, what is important and meaningful in your life, how to feel better and heal from bad memories, and how to communicate better with loved ones. These are often the goals of therapy. They may seem simple, but sometimes we struggle and spend years feeling unhappy or unfulfilled. I have worked with clients for 27 years helping people find their clarity and truth and welcome your call to determine if I'm the "right fit" for you.

I am passionate about diversity and inclusion and provide care through a multicultural, attachment-based , gender-affirmative, and trauma-informed lens.
Our relationships shape who we are, and feeling safer can significantly affect our wellbeing. When our feelings of safety or security are threatened, whether through instability in our relationships, experiences of discrimination, inequity, violence, chronic and complex trauma, or other distressing events and interactions, it may lead to anxiety, depression, patterns of ineffective communication/coping, or manifest in other forms. I have complete trust that you can make choices that promote your growth and health and will collaborate with you to help you reach your treatment goals.

I approach therapy through a multicultural, attachment-based , and trauma-informed lens.
I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. My theoretical orientation is influenced by Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Emotionally-Focused, Humanistic-Experiential, and Narrative approaches to treatment. This means that we will be going on an emotional journey together in which I will use an eclectic combination of clinical theories and techniques to help guide my work. I believe that the lack of emotional awareness and avoiding uncomfortable emotions can cause harm to our mind, body, and soul. My hope is to help you get to know yourself better and learn how

Do you feel lost or confused at times about your feelings, thoughts, and relationships? We each have a resilient spirit within us and therapy can support us with accessing our deepest emotions, knowing ourselves better than before, and walking our path with a stronger sense of self. I believe in being person-centered, creating a safe space, and personalizing an integrative approach to help with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship dynamics, and existential exploration. I draw upon mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and attachment-based therapy.

Being an immigrant, a child of an immigrant, a world traveler or an international student has left you feeling disconnected and like you don't belong. You feel alone even though you are among people, busy with school, work and life. You are not alone. Many of us, who uprooted ourselves by choice of our own or someone else, experience these feelings. These feelings are normal. You're human. The isolation and lack of belonging are exhausting and you long to feel better about your life and future.

My therapeutic approach tends to be eclectic, pulling from various theoretical frameworks including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Attachment-Based Therapy.
Sharing our inner experiences with someone can often feel frightening, which is exactly why I place such an importance on connection and acceptance in the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe environment that will invite my clients to delve deeper into their personal narrative, as I truly believe we are not built to process emotions alone. As humans, we all have a propensity to grow and become our true selves, unfortunately we aren’t always gifted with the circumstances to allow it. I am passionate about creating a space for not only self-discovery and self acceptance, but to allow clients to feel seen, heard, and valued.
