As social beings, relationships are a central part of our lives, so it’s important to make sure those relationships are healthy and meeting our needs! How we communicate with others is a huge factor in relationship building. Whether you are seeking individual or couples therapy, we can, together, work on building effective communication skills. My direct and collaborative approach to therapy allows you to be an active participant in deciding how we can best tackle the problem at hand. As an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist, I will make sure you always feel safe and welcome in the therapeutic space.

I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self. I believe that through therapy, clients can gain more in-depth awareness of their emotional experience, their thoughts and behaviors, and how one’s past may inform one’s present. This awareness can help create space for self-acceptance and self-compassion, and cultivate personal growth and desired change.

I utilize a growth-oriented approach to empower people to problem solve and make changes to pursue the life they envision. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies are used in my practice, with an emphasis on the use of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, to equip people with the skills needed to overcome life’s stressors and challenges. In dialectics, we acknowledge the opposing sides of each experience and work together to synthesize the two. I prioritize developing a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship that will meet you where you are at in your journey, and will come alongside you to cultivate your strengths.

I strongly believe in the holistic wellness perspective that consists of physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual components. Having lived in multiple countries, I have acquired a multicultural lens that allows me to understand the unique challenges related to identity, immigration, and acculturation that people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds face. I strive to create a trusting relationship and supportive environment, free of judgment, in which all these aspects of one’s life can be explored, understood, and healed.

Many people hesitate to start therapy and may be the first in their family or community to reach out for support. I understand how difficult it can be to begin therapy and start to explore how past patterns and experiences may be impacting current behaviors. I see my clients as courageous and inspirational for taking the first step toward seeking support. I am intentional about crafting a judgment-free environment informed by client feedback, so that clients can acclimate to therapy as a process and express themselves at their own pace.

Everyone experiences moments in life that feel overwhelming, stressful, or sad. Sometimes, these moments seem to happen with increasing frequency, or we can't seem to find our way out of painful or distressing patterns, despite our best intentions. If this sounds familiar, therapy might be a helpful step for you. I work primarily with adults who are struggling with issues related to mood, anxiety, stress, life transitions and problems in their relationships. I also have significant experience and specialization treating clients who have experienced both chronic and acute trauma, and clients who describe their family or background as chaotic.

Are you struggling? Maybe you feel a disconnect between where you are and what you want to achieve. Maybe you’re taking a new path or would like to make a change and are unsure about what comes next. For a multitude of reasons, many adults feel like their lives are off track, and their goals are out of reach. Think of how your life would be different if you could start working toward your goals and ambitions, even if anxious thoughts about the future and negative feelings about yourself are telling you that you can’t succeed.

Each person I have the honor of coming into contact with allows me into their life in a unique way that I value and consistently gain greater humility from. I think that underneath everything, we are all wishing to be Seen and Heard for whom we perceive our truest Self to be. That is why I prioritize the establishment of a safe, affirming, and honestly inclusive space for exploring the psyche through the lens in which you view your sense of Self and lived experiences. From here, it is my intention to walk alongside you on a journey of continually discovering what being "authentic" means to you.
