All of us have the capacity to reach our fullest potentials. Yet, all too often we find ourselves stuck in negative patterns of thinking and acting, unable to see other possibilities. Therapy allows us to make meaning of our difficult life experiences and open up to new ways of thinking, feeling, and being. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can learn to identify and express their emotions effectively, develop healthy ways of coping with difficult emotions, improve the quality of their relationships, and increase their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

My primary specialization is providing culturally-competent individual and family therapy services to children, adolescents, and their families. I am particularly passionate about utilizing play therapy and EMDR to treat youth with trauma histories/PTSD. I also treat adults with trauma histories/PTSD using EMDR and other trauma therapies.

My therapeutic approach is warm, empathic, accepting, and honest. I strive to understand my clients within their social, developmental, and cultural contexts to individualize treatment, build on their strengths, and promote positive identity development. Consulting with other providers and advocating for my clients' needs/rights are staples of my practice.
