I work with individuals that are wanting to know themselves better and/or want to make changes to better their life. I generally work with a wide variety of concerns and have special interests in psychological assessment, ADHD, trauma, and vocational concerns. Honoring the client’s unique multicultural identity is something I give special attention to in order to better understand how self-critical beliefs develop and how we can challenge those beliefs with respect to your personal and cultural values.

I have had the honor of working with school-age children, teens and adults of all ages. My current clients are typically working on mood disorders (anxiety, depression) or are struggling to adjust to a change in life. I assist parents with parenting concerns and children with school or family worries or challenges. Clients may have questions about their identify, role in life, a job change, or relationships and together we can sort out the details and find a more comfortable way to approach these questions of life.

My personality style is welcoming, calm, nonjudgemental but straightforward and funny (maybe mostly to myself!). I believe a positive connection is the foundation to the therapeutic process. Connection facilitates a safe space, builds trust and allows the individual to release troubling thoughts, feelings and trapped emotions in the body. I believe in a mind/body skills approach to healing.

My belief is if we are disconnected with ourselves, we aren't showing up to this world authentically it is impacting our relationships with others and most importantly, ourselves. We allow ourselves to be defined by our experiences we've had and trauma we've endured, we lose a sense of self, leaving us feeling lost and "broken". So I welcome you to get lost with me because I'll be right there with you when you find your way.

Mental health problems don't define who you are. They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and you feel the rain, but, importantly, you are not the rain. - Matt Haig. As a clinician, I aim to promote the overall being of my clients by establishing a therapeutic environment that is free from judgment. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in addition to other mindfulness practices. I also incorporate other approaches and techniques to tailor the therapeutic experience to the individual needs of those I work with.
