I provide a safe space for clients to speak openly and honestly, especially those who are not always seen or heard. I enjoy collaborating with my clients to set the path towards progress and growth. My multiple intersectional identities allow me to remain open and curious about each client’s unique background and needs. I have specialized training in college/university-aged individuals, identity exploration and formation, substance use, family of origin distress, work burnout, anxiety, and mood disorders.
My therapeutic approach is Relational Psychodynamic while also considering the systems and structures that influence our experiences. I utilize multiple evidence-based treatments while remaining culturally aware and responsive.
I'm a therapist with Octave and Evernorth Behavioral Care Group. Octave is a mental health practice providing high-quality care covered by multiple insurances. Evernorth Behavioral Care Group is a behavioral health provider group in-network with Cigna Healthcare and Evernorth. For my availability, please reach out to Octave’s team by emailing or calling.
