Announcement icon Currently offering teletherapy and video to support mental wellness to all at this difficult time.
I provide therapy for individuals & teens dealing with anxiety, depression, and trauma. I help to identify negative narratives, defensive mechanisms, and the inner critic. I work in tandem with couples experiencing disconnect, communication issues, and the aftermath of affairs. In my work, I provide a safe space to express emotions, offer a compassionate, warm and non-judgmental support, and I believe that everyone is different and individually tailor therapy for my clients. As I assist you through your therapeutic process, together we work towards personal growth, personal empowerment, love, and self-acceptance.
I have an integrative approach: I focus on all dimensions of your experience — cognitive, creative, energetic, physical, emotional, and spiritual. In our work, I utilize Person-Centered, psychodynamic, expressive arts and mindfulness holistic therapies as foundations to help facilitate insight into your experience and guide you to trust yourself.
I bring a unique set of cultural awareness, knowledge, and experience. I aim to help my clients gain greater self-awareness and offer positive coping tools for clients to use out in the real world. I am your witness, mentor, coach, and companion along with your exploration. My highest priority is to remind you; you are not alone.
