About

I am honored to work with you/your loved ones and provide support wherever you find yourself in life. I will be right by your side as a fellow human being. If you are looking to build your toolbox and develop your sense of empowerment to navigate this world, then we can work on that together. We will work together to build a therapeutic relationship. Relationships are where healing can happen. Together, we can carry your traumas, fears, and anxieties in holistic and traditional approaches. If you’d like to take a step, contact me today for a consultation.
As a queer, person of color, first-generation-citizen therapist, I provide deep understanding of social, political and cultural experiences. I use my personal lived experience, academic knowledge, and clinical experience to provide compassionate, informed care. I offer focus on early attachment to caregivers, intergenerational trauma, and anti-oppression.
I use a gentle, direct approach to increase your self-awareness, connect you with your internal wisdom, and build your sense of agency in life. I work relationally with my clients, using humor, education, and deep compassion and curiosity to support healing and growth. If that sounds like what you are looking for in a therapist, please reach out today.
