I am passionate about helping my clients explore the intersections of adoption, racial/ethnic identity, childhood trauma, confidence, and major life transitions. Throughout life, we continually revisit and re-negotiate our understanding of the experiences that have shaped us. It’s especially hard if you’ve been impacted by unique circumstances such as international/domestic adoption, multi-cultural family, or even just the experience of being a minority in America. I provide a warm and safe space that allows clients to explore their authentic self.
In sessions, I work from a perspective that asks, “What in your past has brought you here?” not “What is wrong with you?”. My clients appreciate how they shift into a more complete understanding of how their emotions and past experiences impact important decisions. They leave with practical tools to build on their strengths and make lasting change.
No matter how deeply dissatisfying your behaviors, relationships, or emotions, change is absolutely possible. It’d be a privilege to join you in this work. If I seem like the right fit, please use the link below to schedule a free, 15 min consultation. I am Out-of-Network with insurance, but we will file claims for your reimbursement so you don't have to!
