About

Welcome! If you are sitting at your computer perusing therapy websites, I applaud you for taking the first step and having the courage to consider whether taking a therapeutic journey is the right decision for your life. While taking this journey is not easy, I fully believe that delegating time to work on ourselves allows us to grow in a mindful and self-accepting way. Psychotherapy is not a "one size fits all process." Instead, psychotherapy should be tailored to the client. Psychotherapy is about meeting you where you are at and working towards your goals in order for you to obtain the life you desire.
My therapeutic style is a person-centered, strength-based recovery model. I have extensive training in eating disorders and body image as well as severe and persistent mental illness. In addition, I am trained in individual and group-based Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I particularly enjoy working with clients of color (Black and Latinx).
I work with clients of all gender, racial, ethnic, and sexual identities that are ages 13 through 64. I do not work with children under the age of 13. Therapeutic fit is very important to me and I have a consultation with all potential clients to discuss your therapy & therapist goals, answer questions, and assess fit.
