I have experience working with diverse populations who struggle with various issues (e.g., anxiety, life transitions, interpersonal relationships). I use empathy, reflective listening, and open-ended questioning to support clients in resolving their ambivalence and finding intrinsic motivation to make positive changes. I can help you manage life transitions and navigate those areas in which you need a perspective from an expert.

Welcome. I am glad you’re here. Finding a therapist is hard. I want to make it easy. When we feel stuck, burdened by unhealthy patterns, or are experiencing life transitions, we can feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed, and lost. You have come to the right place. Therapy is a tool, much like visiting a doctor for your physical health, that can help you get back on track. My style is warm, authentic, and non-judgmental. I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment by listening closely and responding with compassion. I will give you plenty of space to share, explore, and deepen your insight.

Do you feel like your anxiety is out of control? Do you struggle with unwanted thoughts or compulsive behaviors? You have tried to change but your anxiety keeps getting stronger and you find yourself giving in more and more to your anxiety. You feel compelled to act on your habits and rituals even though you know they are not good for you. It's affecting other areas of your life. You don't want anyone to find out so you do not know who to turn to for help.

Overcoming mental and emotional challenges can be difficult, but even more when you feel like you are dealing with them alone. It's not always easy finding someone who's willing to listen and understands from a culturally responsive lens, especially when discussing personal challenges that have been discouraged outside of the home. Stress can come from many different avenues of life (career, family, relationships, society, and culture, etc) and can bring about depressions, anxiety, anger, isolation, and low-self esteem. It's not easy learning healthy ways to cope, managing your symptoms, and even recognizing that there's a problem.

Emotional stress and difficulties can get in the way of reaching our goals and having the life we want. We may be in crisis. Or we may feel stuck, drained, anxious. Perhaps we feel overwhelmed by transition or by loss. In my experience, the struggles that bring us into therapy can be a catalyst for lasting change, helping us to understand ourselves, find healing and growth, and ultimately create a richer and more satisfying life.

The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

I endeavor to help clients better to understand the nature and nuances of their particular difficulties so that they can live a rich, meaningful life. I have experience helping people with a wide array of psychological difficulties, including OCD, anxiety, depression, anger, relational difficulties, and major life transitions. Before beginning my clinical psychology training I worked in business at multiple private-sector organizations - I leverage this distinctive combination of experience and expertise when working with all clients, and especially those who find their work lives impacted by their struggles.

Despite your best efforts to convince yourself that you have it all together, you’re struggling with relationships, you're tired, and you're left wondering, "is it me?" Feeling unsure of how to navigate it all, you’ve pushed down the pain and traumatic memories. Sometimes, you do feel fine; but the feeling is fleeting. Truthfully, the things you've been doing to cope just aren't helping as much as you'd hoped. We both know that simply "focusing on yourself" overlooks the complexity of navigating through unwritten relationship rules, cultural expectations, and your values. Together, let's find new ways to navigate the challenges.

Sometimes life feels like a daily struggle. For many, it feels overwhelming, dark, and depressing. Many people feel anxious and misunderstood. I am a Licensed Independent Clinician with about 20 years of experience serving others who struggle to manage anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. In the past, I worked with youth and adults who were survivors of sexual assault and mental/emotional abuse. It is my mission to empower and uplift others, help them recognize their strengths, and support them to learning healthy ways to cope with life's stressors.
