Therefore, I am a multicultural and gestalt therapist who is committed to the process of understanding and addressing societal issues that impact clients' emotional and psychological health. I work collaboratively with clients to connect to their authentic selves, step into their power, and set goals to achieve their desired holistic needs."

"As a child and family therapist, I see my clients as unique puzzles with mismatched pieces. My goal is to reorganize these puzzle pieces into the right places by helping families develop awareness around how problem behaviors fulfill functional purposes for their children and guide the child in developing healthier behaviors. I work with all members of the child's system through parent meetings; individual child counseling; family therapy; and collaborations with all willing caregivers, teachers, and other service providers involved with the child (e.g., school social workers, psychiatrists, pediatricians, other therapists, etc.).

"Do you feel stuck in a certain stage or aspect of your life? I use these “stuck” feelings to explore inconsistencies in an effort to move back in alignment towards a more authentic self. Within our fast paced world, there is a theme of inadequacy; not being enough, not doing enough. I work collaboratively with my clients to create realistic goals that align with their own values. These goals expand beyond the self to include work, family, and relationships. Without the overwhelming pressure from the universal “shoulds” and societal timelines, my clients gain better insight into their own selves and how to live in service of that."
