About

It can be difficult processing who we are, what we have experienced, and how we should move forward in the face of adversity. While working collaboratively, I welcome individuals to share their story unapologetically and unpack these life experiences. I work to build a caring collaboration that aims to empower and uplift while fostering safety and trust. I offer an affirming, safe space for people who identify as a POC and/or LGBTQIA+ to explore their identities holistically and deconstruct their own narrative within a larger system. Together, we can create a plan with your specific needs and goals in mind.
While incorporating a strength-based, trauma-informed lens, I use a blend of psychotherapeutic styles including narrative therapy, CBT, and psychoanalysis. Throughout the non-profit sector, I have worked with youth, adults, and families on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, life stressors, interpersonal conflicts, and trauma.
Therapy can feel like a daunting endeavor, but it does not have to be. My goal is to alleviate some of that stress while getting to understand you deeply and genuinely. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in working together. I look forward to hearing from you!
