How long have you been hearing the call to a different way of being with yourself and the world? It might just be the quiet whispering of your heart urging you to something more. Or perhaps the whole universe is shouting that something has got to change, you can’t keep living like this. Avoiding our fear of change can keep us stuck. But your capacity to heal is only limited by your beliefs about what is possible. Genuinely transformational work is ultimately a mix of intentional effort and surprising playfulness. It’s about engaging your inner life in new and creative ways in the safe space of a trusted relationship.

Most of your feelings, your intrusive thoughts, and your reactive behaviors are not within your control. You - like many others - can spend so much time and energy fighting the present patterns of your body and mind. You do this because maybe you feel shame for how these symptoms present themselves, you are afraid of how these symptoms may impact your life, or both of these reasons plus more. This attempt to control the uncontrollable is an endless and exhausting fight. As you redirect your energy to becoming aware how your brain and body are presently reacting and accepting these patterns as they present themselves to you today,

Feeling overwhelmed? No worries. I can help and it doesn't have to be a long complicated process. When we get overwhelmed there's usually a lot of stuff that feel urgent and demands our attention while the truly important things are not getting attention. Or, we might feel bogged down and unable to move. We're either moving too fast or not moving at all and can't see the forest for the trees to know which way to go.

I always find it exciting to meet a client for the first time. The bravery to reach out and say, “Hey, things aren’t going great in my life and I would like some help” is a bold first step in making changes that can improve your overall quality of life. It is a great privilege to be a witness to that process.

We live in a world that greets us with many demands, and it can often feel like a constant struggle to balance taking care of yourself and having healthy relationships with others. Whether you have experienced this in the past or are experiencing this now, there’s hope for restoration and contentment throughout life’s ups and downs, and therapy can be a steppingstone to help you get there.

As a therapist, I am always respectful and nonjudgmental. I hold on to the belief that change is possible even when my clients are less optimistic. I continue to study and learn. I have found that my clients can be my best teachers..   The ability to make changes begins with a safe environment. That is my job to provide for you. As the trust continues to grow, together we will work on whatever presents itself. Everyone comes with their own story and that is what makes this work so special.

I support people who want to explore social isolation and confusion due to current social issues, body image and gender, relational wounding, disconnect, life transitions, aging, stress and trauma. I am also here for adult immigrants to the US to guide them through the challenging transitions they encounter and to explore their sociocultural identities within the present context of their life and their culture of origin. I also work with people who experience symptoms medically otherwise unexplained (brain fog, fatigue) that build on our unique neurophysiological patterns of reaction to stress.

Have you been in therapy for a long time and feel you aren't making progress? We are our own worst enemies and often get in our own way of change. Change can be scary, leading us to avoid it and stay within our comfort zone of maladaptive thinking and coping. My ideal clients are those who feel stuck, whether they're struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or performance-related issues. They seek clarity, resilience, and a path to move forward, desiring practical strategies to overcome their obstacles and achieve their goals. Working with me will be a collaborative and empowering experience.
