Life has its moments where we need to slow down, address the pain, disappointment, and the loss. Are you ready to begin the journey to your healing? You are not alone.

"When people feel isolated or alone in their situation, they need someone else to help them gain a new perspective, feel differently, or at times escape the state at hand. My philosophy is to view therapy as if it were a "tune up" to help people keep operating through life. Just like cars need regular tune ups and oil changes to keep running smoothly, people also need regular check-ins and support for internal issues. This is especially important for people of color and minority populations because they face additional societal challenges (including microaggressions) that may or may not be overt but are often painful."

I view therapy as a collaborative process in which the relationship between therapist and client is of primary importance. To this end, I focus on providing clients with a safe environment where we can explore their experiences and feelings. Frequently, a client's current difficulties have developed over a long period of time, and during the course of therapy a deepened understanding of the roots of these problems increases a client's potential to experience positive change, increased self-esteem, strengthened confidence and more satisfying relationships."

"When difficult things happen--trauma, loss, extreme stress--our brains and bodies have an amazing capacity cope; for example, we are flooded with adrenalin to help us survive or we go into shock to protect from the depths of loss. However, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and we get stuck in those events. Using both talk therapy and EMDR, I can help you understand how your mind and body is attempting to cope, learn how to reduce, tolerate and manage the lingering effects, appreciate and reconnect to your emotions, become more embodied, process past events, and find meaningful purpose and connection in the present."
