We all deserve a space that is exclusively ours. A non-judgmental, accepting, and healing space where we can transform our minds, feelings, and experiences. A space to reflect and grow. I provide holistic therapy that is person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed. My approach to therapy is eclectic - I incorporate various treatment modalities and approaches into my work (mindfulness, CBT, DBT , etc.) and provide anti-oppressive, anti-racist and culturally responsive therapy. The identities you carry are seen, valued, and celebrated. I consider all aspects of your life, including the systems and environments that impact us.

I use a holistic approach that is person-centered, and incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR), and mindfulness.
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.

I have an array of techniques including a person-centered approach, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy to meet your needs.
I am here to help you with what you need right now. This includes if you are struggling with current life situations, stressors at work/school, or problems with managing your emotions, like anxiety, depression, or anger. I am passionate about what I do, and I love working with clients to help them achieve their goals in life. My type of therapy adjusts to what you need. This can mean that I do a more relaxed style of session where we are just talking about what is going on and problem solving in the moment or if that does not work for you, I can also do a more structured approach, that focuses on skills and coping strategies.
