I am honored to accompany people on the very personal journey of growth & healing. Life is not easy; it takes courage to share your vulnerabilities in order to unpack hurt, identify inner strengths & hope, and create solutions towards change. My first step is to truly understand your experiences, your perspective on the world, and the unique intersecting identities you bring into the therapeutic space so that I may offer insights or strategies specific to your situation & personality. I frequently treat self-esteem, shame, identity or relationship concerns, women's issues , codependency, and those with a history of family violence.

), sexual abuse, women's issues (infertility, unhealthy relationship patterns, poor self-image, postpartum issues, etc.
I know that starting this process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Using warmth, empathy, direct feedback and skill building I can help you more fully understand yourself and your relationships and therefore feel empowered to start living the life you want to live. While it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in your life and relationships, I firmly believe that healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world in the present.

My specialties are within substance use, women's issues and affirmative counseling for LGBT/BIPOC folks.
My primary goal as a therapist is to provide an affirmative and supportive environment in which you feel comfortable exploring and experiencing true authenticity within yourself and in navigating that authenticity across relationships and different spaces. I believe that by living the most authentic version of ourselves we can then embrace experiencing the full range of emotions that life offers us, including difficult emotions and thoughts, unpleasant memories and unwanted urges and sensations, with courage, radical acceptance and deep compassion.

My clinical specialties include working with adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, has difficulties managing work/life balance, suffering from grief and loss, as well as women's issues and phase of life problems.
Entering an intimate space with yourself is no easy task. But with the help of someone you trust, it makes the journey a bit easier to embrace. It is my belief that my job as a therapist is to help my clients connect the dots within their lives to enhance their mental health. This is done by unpacking, exploring and examining roadblocks from our past that are preventing us from being present in the present. This type of awareness helps to foster continual growth & grants access to understanding the story behind our behaviors.

I especially enjoy helping clients overcome depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, relationship problems and feel passionate about working on women's issues .
I use a strength-based approach and believe that every individual has a set of unique strengths and abilities that can help them through life’s difficulties. I believe strengths are just as important to discuss in therapy as are the so-called “presenting issues” which brought you into therapy in the first place. I have a great appreciation for other people and my treatment is viewed through a multicultural perspective which allows me to have awareness and sensitivity to my clients’ diverse backgrounds and experiences. My ideal client is looking for a partner to help them in the change process.

My clients are the driving force in therapy and it is their plan that is most important. I assist clients in identifying the areas of life that are working well to enhance other areas and begin to make changes to improve situations. By utilizing mindfulness strategies and challenging potentially distorted thinking patterns, clients become more at peace and satisfied in life.
