Whether you're in or starting college or graduate school, starting a new career, or simply navigating your professional identity, you may be thinking, "Do I even belong here? Am I not good enough?" Life transitions coupled with imposter syndrome may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of imposter syndrome may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma , childhood trauma , or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression). Together, we will understand the negative behaviors developed over time, overcome the past, and identify solutions to live life authentically.

I offer individual and family psychotherapy sessions, including Behavioral and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Seeking Safety ( Trauma / PTSD and Substance Abuse), Motivational Interviewing, Attachment-Based, Social Work, and Strength-Based approaches.
I am a psychotherapist committed to providing culturally appropriate mental health services for the BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and Spanish-speaking community. My work focuses on helping adults struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance use/abuse, trauma , and attachment disorders. I also work with youth (16-25 years old) with prodromal schizophrenia. Mental wellness is not often talked about, dealt with or even addressed at all, particularly in BIPOC communities. If you are struggling with any of this, I'm here to help.

I entered the clinical social work profession to learn ways to guide people through the different complex systems in this world. I opened my private practice to give access to mental health care to anyone wanting compassionate care and willing to work on healing their emotional wounds. I enjoy developing relationships with all my clientele and witnessing their growth and healing as they experience psychotherapy. I welcome anyone willing to take the time to heal. I have been fortunate to have provided clinical and non-clinical services to a human representing every continent in our world except for Antarctica since 1997.

, 6-12 sessions) for trauma /adverse experiences, including racial, intergenerational and childhood trauma .
My clients are high-achieving creatives or in the tech industry, working for companies such as Meta, Google, Tesla, etc… I make an effort to create a strong therapeutic relationship in a safe, encouraging and supportive environment. From that foundation we might process difficult experiences and establish healthier ways of coping based in mindfulness practices. My clients typically leave sessions feeling a greater sense of freedom with more possible choices in front of them. They are able to access their own inner wisdom, achieving a better understanding of who they are and a clearer direction in where they wish to lead their lives.

Through nervous-system oriented, trauma -informed, somatic and imaginal psychotherapy, I will help you approach yourself with curiosity and love, identify patterns needing re-examining, and discover your body as a haven of safety in an uncertain world.
If you are here, something is probably not-quite-right. Maybe you have realized that you are ready to do a big chunk of healing work that has been in the back of your mind and nervous system for a while. Maybe you are noticing that you are, in some ways, not being totally honest with yourself, or with your partner(s), or with your family. Maybe you have found that there are parts of you that you've never taken the time to get to know that are asking — loudly or quietly— for attention. Or maybe you just know that you need to carve out a time for yourself every week where you don't have to take care of anyone but yourself.

Together we can explore your inner strengths and how to use them moving forward and find healing throughout the process. I am dedicated to social justice and believe that it’s important to find awareness of one’s resilience in the process of self-discovery and acceptance.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
