With therapy, trauma can be integrated into the past where it occurred, and I can help you learn how to feel safe and grounded in the present.
Are you struggling with emotions, career, relationships, or chronic pain, but not sure how to move forward? As we've all experienced through the pandemic to certain degrees; life events can be unexpected, overwhelming, and traumatic. You deserve space to process what brings you to therapy with a professional who can validate your experiences and commit to working with you, at your pace, to develop solutions. I work from a culturally-aware, trauma -informed perspective to ensure that you feel seen and heard, and offer Art Therapy. Non-judgmental by nature, I collaborate with clients by building on strengths to overcome challenges.

I am a bilingual Registered Art Therapist and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, with a specialty in trauma -informed theories, EMDR, and relational therapeutic perspectives.
The clients I work alongside of often seek reflection and changes in their life. This can sometimes be scary, painful, intimidating and occasionally leading to leave things as they are. However in my experience, the thirst for a more fulfilling life is always present. Sometimes hiding behind a hobby or creative interest, music we listen to, places that make us feel at home or a certain moment of the year when we feel more hopeful. I deeply enjoy helping my clients find those special pieces of fulfillment together. With time and intention, these later become the foundation for healing, change, and deeper reflection.

Life is a work in progress, and progress isn't always a linear path. It's inevitable to have hurdles along the way, and we sometimes need support to better cope with these hurdles.

I have experience working with people experiencing stress, cultural issues, survivors of abuse, grief, and those seeking to heal individual or family trauma .
Have you been through an experience that has made you feel stuck, isolated, or confused? Maybe it has been a traumatic experience, relationship problems, professional challenges, cultural/racial experiences or even every day stress. We often think we have to face these challenges alone and “move on!” Working together, we will work on healing, building healthy skills to cope, and developing healthy patterns that work for you and liberate you from the experiences that may be holding you back.

I use tools that support healing from trauma (EMDR, bodyawareness, and mindfulness), creating healthier relationships (Attachment-based therapy), and reducing stress and anxiety (Mindfulness, CBT).
Maybe you're feeling weighed down by memories that you've been trying to shake. You want to connect with a partner, but the same negative patterns keep playing out in your romantic life. A good night's sleep is rare, the tightness and stress in your shoulders is constant, but you have trouble pinning down what it's all stemming from. And you want things to change, even if you aren't sure exactly where to start. The good news is that you don't have to go through this season of life alone. I'll walk with you as we make sense of your current challenges and I'm confident that through our time, you'll begin to feel better.

I have years of experience and training in a range of areas including: complex generational trauma , issues related to adolescence, issues related to foster care / adoption, school / college-related problems, parental support, family / relational conflicts, depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, and major life transitions.
My therapeutic style focuses on safety and empowerment. While I may be the “professional,” you are the expert of your own life. To establish trust, I wear my heart on my nerdy sleeve. I would never ask you to risk your vulnerability if I am unwilling to risk my own. I may use humor to foster hope and ease discomfort. I welcome you to question my perspectives to improve the power of our co-created insights. We will collaborate and develop ways for you to make new choices, break old patterns, and build more effective supports. Our work will help you unlock your potential for healing, and get you closer to the person you want to be.

I have extensive expertise with survivors of trauma and family violence, giving trainings/workshops to survivors & therapists across the country.
Perhaps you've found yourself stuck in self-defeating patterns of thinking or behavior – struggling with feelings or symptoms you can no longer ignore. Maybe life has thrown you a curve ball you can't manage with your existing coping skills. If the solution was simple, you'd probably have figured it out by now. Over 25+ years, I've helped numerous individuals and couples with diverse backgrounds, strengths and concerns to get "unstuck," make significant gains and achieve greater satisfaction in relationships, work and life in general.
