I have trained in empirically validated treatments with experience iCrisis Counseling, PTSD and Trauma Counseling, Survivors of Trauma, Abuse and Victimization, Sexual Exploitation, Behavioral Issues, Family and Adolescent Counseling, and training in ACT, Brief, Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, SFT and Animal Assisted Psychotherapy (among other modalities).
As an MA, LPC, I help individuals explore their thoughts, feelings and behavior to reach a more clear self-understanding and change long-standing patterns of behavior that may be disrupting relationships, work and study. The nonjudgemental and accepting nature of clinical mental health counseling makes it possible to face painful experiences. My client utilizes their capacity to change, seeking mental clarity, presence and balance. As a professional counselor I will work within clearly contracted, ethical boundaries, with respect for my clients, their values, their beliefs, their culture, to explore and resolve life difficulties.

The majority of my professional career has been focused on people on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, young people “at-risk” of high school drop-out, and survivors of sexual assault/ domestic violence .
You have the answers that you are looking for - my role as your therapist is to work in collaboration with you to bring those skills, capacities, and experiences to the forefront. My personal identities (i.e. Latinx and Asian), along with my education in psychology, religion, and social work, inform my practice through a lens of anti-oppression that is affirming of people on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, people of all sizes, racial, and religious identities, parenting and non-parenting people, diverse relationship structures, kinksters, people who have been incarcerated, and people who work(ed) in underregulated economies (i.e. sex work).

Some presenting concerns that I often work with in therapy include complex trauma, anxiety, depression, bicultural identity, systemic/religious abuse , sexuality, emotional awareness, relationship issues, family dynamics and developmental trauma.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou. Have you ever found yourself stuck within stressful relationships, triggering environments or confusing emotions? That "stuck" feeling can often lead to stagnation in our day to day lives, and uncertainty about the future. I address these struggles by utilizing a holistic, trauma-informed approach, which incorporates body-oriented, anti-oppression and harm reduction practices. These strategies allow me to focus on the strengths already within each client, while also uncovering past wounds that might be limiting growth.

My experience and expertise includes working with with anxiety, depression, unexplained physical symptoms, substance abuse /dependence, bipolar and mood disorders, issues of identity, eating and exercise disorders, grief & loss, performance, motivation, PTSD, and chronic stress.
Personally, I know how difficult it was for me to get out of bed when suffering from depression and anxiety and to go about the everyday when concerned about having another panic attack. I know how valuable it was for me to have someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me or make me feel guilty about being exactly where I was at the time. The idea of "you should be fine", or "you have no reason to be anxious or depressed" is hurtful and doesn't help.

I focus on and have experience treating trauma related symptoms and disorders, anxiety, depression, attachment disruptions, family conflict, survivors of childhood abuse , survivors of sexual assault, as well as loss and grief.
We have our own journey full of triumphs, struggles, and failure. Therapy is a perfect format to process and come to the understanding of where and why you are that brings you to seek the service. My belief is that therapy is the place for the person to process and discuss each unique experience without judgment and develop a healthy way to cope or come to terms with the consequences. Therapy also can be your opportunity to be seen and heard, which would help you move toward the acceptance of yourself.

I also recognize the secondary trauma that can arise from dealing with the systems meant to help us. I specialize in trauma-informed therapy and am EMDR trained.

Now accepting clients! Facing life's challenges isn't easy. Living with mental health struggles can be isolating due to social stigma. You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, isolated, or hopeless. Maybe you've experienced something painful or traumatic that's affecting you, including systemic violence or identity-related oppression. Understandably, it might feel like there's no way things could improve. While counseling can't change everything, having support through your toughest times can help. That's why I'm here. You want a counselor with open ears, an open mind, and an open heart. Someone to help you best weather life's storms.
