About

I continue to be humbled by the bravery, vulnerability and courage it takes to enter into therapy. The very act of reaching out is one of resiliency and strength, particularly during times when you may be experiencing difficult transitions, questioning patterns in life that no longer serve you or your relationships, feelings of worry, sadness and overwhelm.
I am versed in working with those who are new to a therapeutic process, experiencing anxiety, depression, questions around identity, members of LGBTQIA community and the nuances of being from a multi-racial background.
I am committed to creating space for healing where the cultural context you identify within is prioritized. I believe we all have the ability and knowing within ourselves to heal and sometimes need an other to hold space for us to reconnect what we already know is true.
