I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

You're not sure why, but you find yourself feeling anxious and empty when you wake up in the morning. As a young adult in your 20's or 30's, your life looks pretty good on paper. But something is missing. You're not certain who you are anymore, and you are questioning your path, your relationships, or maybe your day-to-day grind. Lately, you've been doubting your self-worth and contribution. Or maybe a little voice has always been there, disparaging what you do, what you say, and who you are. You are tired of feeling muzzled, muted, and half-alive.

Our work together can include healing past hurts, feeling more sexually connected, and creating positive life changes. I have a particular affinity towards work with multiracial and multicultural couples and the intersectional work of power and privilege as it plays out in relationships. I am most interested in supporting my clients in finding relief from suffering and being truly happy.
