"Therapy is one of few spaces that is dedicated to you and you alone. It is a non-judgmental space where you can explore issues that have gotten in the way of you living as fully as you desire. You are the keeper of your truth and your story. I can support you in holding the feelings you experience in healthier ways, whether they be fear, shame, disappointment, or joy. I look forward to helping you increase your emotional buoyancy as you realize your path to deeper self-knowledge and healing."

"My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships."

"People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."

"Many people turn to therapy when they don't know where else to turn. You might be feeling pain or feelings that are confusing or overwhelming to you; you may be acting (or thinking) in ways that you would rather not act (or think). I see therapy as a unique opportunity to engage in a collaborative relationship--focusing on your needs--that helps you go where you want to go in your life, or heal what needs to be healed. Together, we will work to create the safe environment that you need to do your work."

"I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people that have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the "dominant culture." Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire."

"I believe each person requires a culturally responsive, warm and personalized approach to healing and optimal functioning. I have helped adults whose lives, while appearing in control, have been impacted by racism/oppression and trauma. They feel down despite successes and may have difficulties maintaining healthy relationships. Psychotherapy examines how we are impacted by patterns that create anxiety, depression, or even recreate historically traumatic experiences. I help identify these patterns and can work with you to achieve health and personal fulfillment. Together, we can work through the pain and create new possibilities for healing and transformation."

"Starting therapy can be daunting, so I encourage you to reach out, even if you're uncertain where to start. I've witnessed profound impacts in my work with people, where shame becomes self acceptance and overwhelm becomes relief and ease. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy. I also tend to work well with over achievers, sensitive introverts, and perfectionists struggling to find a stable sense of self worth. My practice is anti oppression and trauma informed."
