Utilizing a trauma -informed, attachment based approach, I specialize in working with clients struggling with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, adjustment/life transitions, grief/loss, self-esteem issues, and relationship difficulties.
I deeply respect and value the courage that it takes for an individual to seek therapy. It is an incredible gift to oneself. Echoing the words of Erich Fromm, I wholeheartedly believe that “whether we or not we are aware of it, there is nothing of which we are more ashamed than of not being ourselves, and there is nothing that gives us greater pride and happiness than to think, to feel and say what is ours”. While fostering a therapeutic relationship grounded in trust and authenticity, I seek to emphasize each individual's unique strengths and skills as we sort out the emotional distress together.

I am honored to be able to help support queer and trans people, people of color, especially women of color, children of immigrants, sex workers, and trauma survivors.
The clients who are the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who are looking to be pushed, who want to build a stronger sense of self, learn how to center their own needs and set boundaries, and are open to inner child healing. The clients I work with want to change their relationship with themselves to be more compassionate and nurturing. They are recovering people pleasers, people who want to learn how to be more assertive, often have unresolved trauma , and are ready to break cycles in order to establish new patterns. I'm here to help you look at parts of yourself that may be hard to face, but need to be comforted.

I treat a variety of issues, but my specialties include EMDR and working with individuals who suffer from trauma , PTSD , anxiety, depression, ADHD, and interpersonal relationship issues.
As your therapist, I will help you dissect the issues you’re experiencing into manageable pieces. We'll work together to find the healing tools that work best for you and your lifestyle. I believe every client is unique, and comes from a unique set of life experiences and cultural backgrounds. What works for you, may not work for the next person. With this knowledge, I will provide a customized treatment plan that works best for you and your needs. Together, we will work through tough feelings, undesirable behavior patterns, and self-defeating thoughts to increase your confidence, and get you to where you desire to be.

I support adults facing anxiety, depression, disturbing memories, grief, break-ups, work-related stress, ADHD, and trauma . I focus on helping all adults, specifically marginalized individuals, to navigate through their life story to identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve them. I assist clients who want to change these negative beliefs into beliefs that are more valid and useful. Examples include: “I should have done something” to “I did the best I could” or “I am not enough” to “I am okay as I am” or “I am not in control” to “I now have choices” or “I cannot trust anyone” to “I can choose whom to trust".

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
