About

As a therapist, my goal is to work with people who are motivated to work towards progress in their lived experience through the therapeutic process. I have a humanistic and solution focused perspective to therapy which includes increased self-awareness regarding insights into your experiences of mental health distress, socio-economic issues as well your strength. I believe in a collaborative approach towards treatment planning and goals. My clinical focus includes anxiety, anger management, women’s issues, and complex stress in marginalized communities.
Effective therapy recognizes the whole person—challenges, strengths, and environment. I love to incorporate creative interventions to increase self-awareness, promote self-efficacy, and emotion regulation to help clients reach their wellness goals. My integrative holistic approach to treatment includes CBT, Narrative therapy, Somatic therapy, and MBSR.
Living as a BIPOC Queer therapist, I am committed to helping anyone learn how to thrive as the best person they can be based on one's strengths, lived experiences and challenges. I have a passion for diversity and advocacy which includes an awareness of disparity and invisibility of people of color, LGBT+ persons clinical mental health and education.
