Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

I am sex-positive, kink-affirming, LGBT+/GSM-affirming, and ENM/CNM/poly-affirming. I work with clients to notice, give attention, and slow down when the world wants us to ignore, distract, and speed up. By gently exploring family patterns and our ways of being in relationship, we can come to intriguing conclusions about ourselves and others. By cultivating and accessing community, self-compassion, and intimacy (both physical and emotional), we can heal from trauma, and lift ourselves out of even the darkest places.

I am a bilingual and bi-cultural therapist who values the strength of the trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship. You might feel overwhelmed with finding a therapist if you are already feeling stuck. It can be hard to find someone to disclose your feelings to a "new person" during your time of vulnerability. My warm, empathetic, and non-directive approach has helped those new to therapy feel comfortable disclosing their most difficult emotions and experiences. My approach is collaborative, where I can guide you to find the right tools so you can feel in control of your life again.
