I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) working for Hurdle Health to provide culturally-intentional care to adolescents and adults. While we all have our own unique lived experiences, the opportunity to join a safe space where one’s stressors, concerns, and challenges are heard in a nonjudgmental space, can become the catalyst to the change one wants to see in their life. My areas of specialty include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, depression, low self-esteem, adjustment issues, and stress. My collegiate-level athletic background brings a collaborative and results-oriented focus to the therapy space.

At the same time, if you struggle with anxiety, depression or more serious mental health issues, I'm still here to help.

I am passionate about supporting my clients to feel congruent internally, so they can further understand and communicate their needs externally. I often utilize different strategies (of client’s choice), such as drawing, Zen tangle, meditation, body scan, dance/movement, to assist clients to have a better understanding of “what’s going on”. I worked with children, adolescents, and their families to overcome struggles around depression, anxiety, gender identity, emotion regulation and expression, dysfunctional family communication, parenting skills, traumas, and acculturation difficulties.

We all have our own unique stressors. Finding ways to connect, harness our creativity, or find resilience can be challenging during these times. I have over 15 years of experience collaborating with folks who are navigating anxiety, depression, loneliness, and grief. These factors often manifest as barriers to the relationships we want, to fulfilling work, and to reaching our goals and dreams. I use a down-to-earth, person-centered approach informed by extensive training in modalities that help to examine or shift behaviors and patterns. We are all human and can't do it alone, so please take the first step and reach out.

Whether predicted or unexpected, change can be some of the most difficult territory to navigate alone. Getting to the other side of a life transition tends to include addressing fears, grieving losses, and exploring and integrating new identities. In my practice, I provide a caring, non-judgmental place for clients to understand themselves better, process difficult feelings, change painful habits, and build a more satisfying life. Together we will figure out what it is you need in order to regain your balance and sense of freedom.

Everybody gets stuck now and then, but sometimes it seems like we've tried everything and can't manage to shake it, or like we are working against our better interests.

I have an active therapeutic style rooted in compassion and collaboration. I believe there are many ways to be whole and live a rich life, and I want to help you find yours.

All narratives are unique and it is an honor to have your stories shared with me. I value humor and patience and work to create a safe and open environment with my clients. Suffering is embedded and essential to the human spirit--it allows us to gain perspective, wisdom, and insight. I like to find the light in dark times and help cultivate and grow that light for when we face our next challenges. I will let you know why I am asking about certain areas of your life and will fully and transparently narrate my process so that we can work collaboratively and openly.

Acknowledging that we need support is a difficult, brave decision, and therapy is a powerful tool in understanding our lives . I believe that all behaviors, thoughts, and feelings make sense in the context of experience. I work with clients to develop insight, clarity and self-compassion to effect meaningful change. I employ a warm, empowering approach to treatment, and use a social justice lens to acknowledge the ways that oppression impacts experience. I incorporate elements of psychodynamic, relational, and internal family systems modalities into my work with clients.

All people deserve space to seek support, explore themselves deeply, and feel understood. I offer psychotherapy for adults, older adolescents, couples/partnerships, and families. I focus on building an attuned therapeutic relationship with my clients, in which one can feel safe enough to examine feelings, vulnerabilities, and struggles, and expand their capacity to live a fulfilling, empowered life. While I tailor treatment to individual needs and strengths, my approach is generally relational, trauma informed, and culturally and socially attuned, drawing from a variety of therapeutic models and theories.
