"I have witnessed many times the power of psychotherapy to improve people's lived experiences. I approach clinical practice with the belief that personal development and larger social change go hand in hand and that bringing about social justice necessitates that we transform as individuals, communities, and societies. Psychotherapy with me is grounded in recognizing the global factors (oppressions and privileges) shaping individuals while incorporating an understanding of personal responses to lived experience."

"Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values."

I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits."
