"I want to help you tap into your inherent creativity to find solutions to the challenge you are facing right now. You may be feeling lost, disconnected, anxious, lonely, scared or sad. I work with bi-racial/cultural women and men who are smart, scared, anxious & confused. I commonly hear: I feel like I’m not myself, I feel disconnected. I know I could be doing better, I’m just not sure how. I feel sad and I’m not sure why. And beneath this: I am so wrapped up in my mind that I don’t know where to begin. I'm not sure anyone can help me. I feel scared all the time. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to really love/be loved. "

"Carl Jung said, "I would rather be whole than good." Very often we put pressure on ourselves to "be" a certain way, so much that life can start to feel like acting versus living. This pressure tends to place stress on individuals and can often lead to anxiety, depression, and stress. I believe that therapy can be a tool to take off the masks we have learned to put on and begin to live from our whole self; finding freedom and our creativity. I believe that through compassion for all the parts of ourself we step closer to freedom."
