I believe everyone deserves to enjoy a meaningful, fulfilling life, but I know from experience how challenging that can be at times. Let me help you develop coping skills for various issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, career-related issues, teen issues, twentysomething issues, attachment and family issues, and relationship challenges. I use directness with warmth, compassion, support, and laughter to create a judgment-free zone where you can be yourself and take off the "mask." Sure therapy can be tough at times, but also enjoyable and rewarding when you see the progress you are making.

Selecting a therapist is very personal. People often hesitate to share their life with another person, even with a person who has chosen to care and help as their life's work. I am dedicated to helping each client live their lives to the best of their ability by developing a caring relationship in which to work toward mutually determined therapeutic goals. I believe in each person's creative power, while understanding that life can be challenging and overwhelming.

I approach my clinical work with a grounding in my deeply-held belief that all human beings have infinite worth. My goal for all individuals with whom I work is to support each person's path towards experiencing that worth within themselves. Having worked in the mental health field for the past 16 years with children, adolescents, adults, and families, I have utilized this philosophy to guide the process of therapy with individuals having a wide range of challenges, from autism spectrum disorders to struggles with mood and anxiety to relationship problems.

We face struggles in life and through introspection, humor, and support, we persevere. From the development and focus on our individual resources, we gain the momentum to overcome. It is my belief that supportive relationships tend to be of utmost value to us when we are faced with struggle. Through these relationships, we find direction.

Is your child or teen struggling with anxiety, depression, parental divorce, making friends, or challenges that come with an Autism Spectrum Disorder? Are you a young adult experiencing a life transition, relationship difficulties or grief and loss? If so, psychotherapy can help. My goal is not to provide strategies that simply lead to short term relief, but to work with you or your child to reduce symptoms quickly, while creating long-lasting change- a process that I believe only occurs in the context of a safe and trusting relationship.

A fundamental human need is to feel emotionally close to others. Difficulty connecting in a platonic or romantic way can leave one feeling sad, anxious, and lonely. Often, we retreat from attempted connection to avoid potential pain. Alternately, because we don't know any different or don't want to feel disconnected, we become involved with others who cause us more interpersonal stress. But isolating or engaging with harmful others can cause us to feel vulnerable, damaged, and upset with ourselves. This pattern often leads us to question if we are capable and deserving of joining and creating mutually beneficial relationships.

I provide culturally responsive individual psychotherapy to adults of all ages. I work collaboratively with clients from a relational/psychodynamic framework, but I am also skilled working in a more structured way to address specific and short-term goals. Above all, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the central element in treatment. The relationship is the medium by which therapy helps clients foster a strong sense of self-worth and identity, increase happiness and life satisfaction, improve the quality of their relationships, and understand their feelings, motives, and behavior.

I support individuals and couples with relationship conflict, sexual concerns, and adjustment to life transitions. Clients come to therapy with some common relationship issues: feeling disconnected, noticing the same argument on repeat, discomfort or awkwardness talking about sex, a sexless marriage, mismatched desire, painful intercourse, questions about sexual functioning, and more. With advanced clinical training in relationship and sex therapy, I’ll help you to better understand your needs and goals, build empathy and emotional intimacy, and cultivate more connection, pleasure, and trust in your relationships.

You have the power to make changes in your life! You may not yet know how, but I am here to help you figure this out. Dishes have piled up, relationships are suffering, and avoidance shows up even when it comes to things you enjoy. Sometimes situations change and pose new challenges; at other times situations remain the same and lead to feeling stagnant and stuck. Whatever your unique case might be, today can be the beginning of feeling more effective in your life. It is courageous to acknowledge that you might benefit from learning new tools and insights.

I identify as a queer person of color and hope to best serve those communities who feel underrepresented in professional fields. Common areas that I work with are trauma, gender identity and expression, gender issues, career related difficulties, and mood/anxiety disorders. I work heavily with the linguistic ways we approach "problems" and through a narrative approach we would work on creating the future you want to see.

I help adult individuals and couples through major life transitions for themselves, their relationships and their work. In therapy I help you understand what you are feeling, so you can come up with ways to better cope and problem-solve during challenging times, develop a stronger sense of identity, develop and exercise self-compassion, and develop insight into unhelpful patterns. In doing so, you can improve your psychological well-being, achieve your goals, and live a more fulfilling life. I believe you are the only expert in your own life, so my role is to help you discover the best way for you to navigate this transition.

You feel like you're barely hanging in there. Like you've lost your way, or maybe even yourself. You just can't seem to get back on solid footing-emotionally OR mentally. You’ve tried your usual tips and tricks to feel better, but they’ve barely moved the needle. Your brain feels like it's not your friend and it's tough to find happiness in the things that usually bring you joy. Your confidence has been knocked down a few pegs. You either feel keyed up with constant worry or knocked flat, laying on the couch or your bed without the energy to do anything. And now you've decided: it's time for a change.

I understand the hesitation in starting the therapy process; it can be intimidating. I admire the bravery that you possess by embarking on this journey. I work with individuals to resolve complex traumas, anxiety, depression, & identity-based wounds. As an immigrant & former refugee, my life experiences have further taught me to navigate through the events of migration, & violence, & the traumas of displacement, and loss. Some of these personal experiences have sharpened my capacity to delicately highlight the consequences of trauma, & grief on the clients that I worked with. My experience is a merge of educational & professional
