I served on a Cultural Competency Best Practices Committee for Kaiser Permanente for a decade and have facilitated many cognitive-behavioral groups for men and women with anxiety.
I have enjoyed working with clients from very diverse cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds and sexual orientations and identities for over 20 years. I prize establishing respectful, trusting, and collaborative relationships with my clients as this is key in helping them achieve their goals in treatment. It is my goal for clients to leave therapy with new skills, new understanding, a sense of empowerment, or having worked through some difficult experiences. My past training and clinical work have provided me expertise in the areas of depression, cultural issues, assertiveness, relationships, anxiety, and trauma.

Are you having trouble expressing your needs in the intimacy department of your relationship? Does it feel you and your partner are not on the same page? Are you struggling do you end up in a fight or ignoring the problem? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. And I know this is hard. You've likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years. But I'm so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of being here.

I have a particular skill in working with women , people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals and folks new to therapy.
Are you not feeling like your usual self? Are stress, work, family pressure, relocation and/or COVID overwhelming you? Is there just way too much going on? If you'd like to feel more calm, more relaxed, less upset, and more happy - let's chat. Sometimes our brain won't turn off and stop worrying, sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed or get a good night's rest, other times it is tough to buckle down and focus. Therapy can help - even if you're not sure how. I see mental health as part of one's overall wellness. My approach focuses not just on having fewer negative emotions, but also on experiencing more positive emotions.

You just took the first step to change! I will help you gain the skills and knowledge in taking the next steps, making progresses, and achieving your goals - in a respectful, direct, no-nonsense, non-judgmental, sincere, and supportive way. This process may be challenging (as it should be), but I've helped created and witnessed numerous victorious smiles -- and, you will create yours.

Seeking therapy can be a challenging step, because opening up about intimate issues to a stranger is both terrifying and can leave you feeling vulnerable. That's why it's important to find somebody with whom you feel comfortable. It is my priority to make one feel at ease, because reaching your goal is more difficult when this is not at the foundation of the therapeutic experience. This approach has enabled me to work with a wide array of children, teens, adults, couples, and families.
