***My practice is currently full and I am not able to accept new clients at this time.*** Women, people of color, and the queer & trans community are the heart of my practice. Despite outward signs of being successful – ‘having made it’ or ‘being the first in your family to (fill in the blank)’– you are suffering internally from imposter syndrome, self-worth, and acceptance (self or family). You are seeking relief from high levels of stress or anxiety, isolation, loneliness, depression, difficulty relating to others, strained relationships and relying on unhealthy coping mechanism to avoid or escape feeling this way.
Interested in cultivating deeper self-awareness & ownership of your life? Together we will explore how significant life experiences have shaped you & how you show up today. This exploration will deepen your understanding, self-compassion, & self-acceptance --- all of which are needed to make choices & practice new skills that can lead to more joyful living.
With over 25 years of experience working for social justice as an organizer, facilitator, and convener with diverse communities of color, in my practice I provide a unique perspective on the intersections of oppression (gender, race, class, sexuality, immigration) and the impact oppression (internalized, interpersonal, & institutional) has on mental health.
