I’m passionate about providing a culturally sensitive and comfortable space for you to share your thoughts, your feelings, and your experiences, without judgement. I work from an evidenced-based framework, which means I implement techniques that have been scientifically proven to work. I believe it’s important to understand how our bodies respond to stressors and how that can impact our quality of life. I help individuals who are presenting with anxiety, depression, trauma, issues with identity development, family conflict, life transitions, and challenges with acculturation.

My approach to therapy is that of a guide, helping people discover their own inner strength so they can make positive changes. Clients say that my laid back demeanor and calming presence allow a safe, relaxing place to talk openly and work through concerns together. While both direct and supportive, I tailor my approach based on the individual needs of each client. Whether child, teen or adult, I feel it is a privilege to help clients find healing and happiness.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

A therapist allows you the space to safely speak your truth, explore your identity and what that means to you, and learn how to approach life with that knowledge. You might be going through life transitions and adjustments such as changes in relationships, living situations, or career. You might be a mother trying to navigate through your new or continuing role, experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety, or trying to recover from loss. You might want to heal wounds left from past traumas and gain insight into how you can move forward. Together we can embark on a journey of healing, knowledge, and self-discovery.

With a comfortable match up of therapist and client, both of us work towards understanding the challenges you face, getting some clarity about what can be changed, and learning how to take action. Getting comfortable involves feeling listened to and understood by me and developing trust that I will be knowledgeable about your subject and I will be supportive and non judgmental in this therapeutic relationship.
