About

Engaging in therapy is an act of bravery and self-love. Whether you are new to this journey or maintaining past progress, I’m here to support you in your healing. I offer a safe place where you will feel seen and heard. My approach is collaborative. I work with clients who may be healing from trauma, experiencing grief and loss, exploring their identity, or grappling with relationship issues. I tailor each session to the unique needs of my clients. If you suffer from awful panic attacks, I'll give you strategies to tolerate and manage them so you can stop canceling plans at the last minute and offer techniques to combat anxiety.
I use a strengths-based, holistic approach, integrating a variety of techniques and theoretical approaches that include mindfulness, narrative-focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) while incorporating a systems-based approach. I work with clients from various cultural backgrounds and work from a social justice lens.
Wherever you are on your journey, I’m here to partner alongside you. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”-Maya Angelou
