About

There are many reasons why a person, a couple, or a family might find themselves feeling stuck, down, disconnected, overwhelmed, or anxious. A significant portion of my education and training is based around helping clients reduce or resolve symptoms associated with their challenges. However, I find that helping clients identify the root of their obstacles—in addition to cultivating skills and strategies to work towards a strong mental and emotional sense of well-being and developing strong connected relationships—is as important as attending to mental, emotional, and relational symptoms.
Some of my focuses are working with trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression and anxiety, helping individuals, couples, and families improve the relationships in their lives. I work with adolescents and their families to support a healthy developmental process. I strive to provide a safe and affirming therapeutic environment for people of color.
It is important to me that in my therapy practice, I provide a safe and comfortable environment and work towards therapeutic goals in a collaborative way with my clients. I approach my role as a therapist with a holistic lens and deep respect, humility, and openness for how I can best support each client in their own unique authentic life.
