I have a deep passion for helping people discover their power in the face of life’s adversities. Stress presents itself in a number of ways which impact the mind, body, and spirit. As a psychotherapist, I am dedicated to an integrative whole-person approach to wellness and healing. I am particularly interested in healing the emotional/spiritual wounds of internalized racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of oppression. I work to empower others to overcome feeling stuck and controlled by distressing emotions, unhealthy behaviors, and painful past experiences.

Expression, in all of its forms, is empowerment. Being able to trust someone and feel safe with them is instrumental in amplifying expression.

As an art therapist, I use the creative process to support clients in connecting with themselves and build self-confidence and compassion.

Many of my clients relate to the experience of feeling "othered", different or as existing outside of culturally-constructed margins. In our increasingly isolationist world, feeling different or other is becoming a common experience. While many things may remind us of our difference, or "non-normativity", in therapy I aim to collaboratively uncover and identify the worth and purpose that I believe exist in all humxn beings. I believe that all concerns, struggles, challenges, curiosities and explorations brought to therapy are related to relationships--the relationship we have with ourselves and other people. Often, clients express a need for deep connection and goals involve enhancing relationships, identifying emotions, coping more effectively with emotions, and nourishing self-worth and confidence. Research on therapeutic effectiveness has repeatedly demonstrated that therapeutic relationship is the principle determinant of positive therapeutic outcome. Thus, when I first meet clients, client-therapist relationship and chemistry is the primary emphasis and catalyst for change.
