Clients often begin therapy from an overwhelmed, entangled headspace, knowing innately there’s something they would like to work towards, but feeling uncertain of what that journey may look like. I strive to join you where you’re at, providing a safe, non-judgmental space to be heard. We will work together to uncover insights and gain clarity, drawing upon your own unique strengths, capabilities, and sense of self. My approach is eclectic and collaborative, beginning with your goals and hopes for treatment, and incorporating creative methods to work together in this pursuit. Our sessions are tailored to best suit your unique needs.

For oppressed people to intentionally cultivate pleasure is an act of resistance - Ingrid LaFleur. My clinical identity lies in supporting clients looking for culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, poly & kink -friendly, and queer affirming therapists. My intersecting identities offers me the ability to connect with clients that identify as people of color, immigrants, kink positive, LGBTQ+, or clients who hold identities altogether different than or similar to my own. Curiosity and awareness are the cornerstones of what informs my work as a therapist.

Change, stress, and burnout are difficult things to juggle alone. At various points in our lives, we all need a safe space to identify and engage with what feels like it may be holding us back. Holding a safe space where clients can engage with their true, authentic self is at the heart of my practice and my work. Throughout this process, we will work together to identify your own unique strengths and needs. I specialize in anxiety, depression, life transitions, chronic illness and women-identifying issues. I am a body-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ and queer affirming clinician.

I believe that genuine relationships have the power to heal. And the relationship between a client and therapist is a particularly unique bond. Irvin Yalom has described this relationship as one of fellow travelers on an adventure of mutual growth & discovery. As your fellow traveler, I’ll stand alongside you as an active collaborator on your journey. I believe in the innate resilience of all human beings, and our ability to create a life in which we can thrive. We’ll use our relationship to understand and shift the patterns that are holding you back, and help you realize your vision for the life you want to lead.

My goal as a psychotherapist is to help you live a deliberate, self-actualized, and peaceful life. We all struggle with anxiety and depression at times. We push people away when we want them close, we act contrary to our best interest and don't know why. I can help illuminate patterns of behaviors and beliefs that impede your ability to reach your potential. Together, we can identify those invisible forces that drive your behavior and cause stagnation, pain, broken relationships, and missed opportunities. I take an anti-oppressive lens and provide space to explore the corrosive impact of external influences (ie: caste, race, gender)

We are all human and experience hard “things” at one time or another. Hard doesn't always have a concrete definition. Our difficulties and challenges are rarely the same as we are all unique. What is the same is that we all deserve a space to deal with the weight that so often bears down on our shoulders, regardless of how light or heavy that may be. Now more than ever, there is a need for dedicated mental health professionals who wholeheartedly want to work cohesively and collaboratively with their clients towards their goals of being their best and most authentic selves. I am here to support you.

Are you feeling othered, alone, or hopeless? Have you been carrying pain with you for a long time now? Talking to a therapist can help you feel like yourself again. I help my clients discover the root of their concerns through storytelling, reflecting on their values and desires, and understanding in what ways they’ve adapted to being in the world. Together, we create a space that feels warm, safe, and healing — and ultimately restores a sense of joy, play, and hope. We’ll learn to be curious about emotional patterns, how to communicate effectively, and develop tools to slow down when life inevitably gets overwhelming.

Are you at a crossroads in a relationship? Couples often come to see me facing an impossible choice. Staying together would be unbearable, and separating would be miserable. They don’t want to accept an unhappy status quo, full of loneliness and resentment. They know there are important conversations to be had, but any attempts have ended in fighting or silence.

The courage to face one’s anxiety, sadness or pain is a huge step towards healing. I consider it a privilege and an honor to have people share their life struggles with me. Psychodynamic therapy helps people understand themselves better and, ultimately, the answers that they seek about their lives and what will make them more fulfilled will be revealed.

My goal is to foster a space where every part of you feels warmly invited to participate in the process of healing and self-understanding. Whether you are seeking help for anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, low self-esteem, professional hurdles, or creative blocks, I believe a key ingredient to long-term change is the chance to be experienced fully without the familiar fear of judgment. This means I welcome, with compassion and gentle curiosity, the aspects of you that feel buried, objectionable, or even unacceptable, perhaps due to social stigma or fear of being rejected.

A truly fantastic therapist can be life changing. Learning to be honest with ourselves while sharing intimate details of our lives can be overwhelming for some, especially those who are in vulnerable positions. I truly believe that what is mentionable, is manageable. I provide a safe space where all can feel validated, appreciated and heard while developing a unique treatment plan tailored to the client's most pressing and specific needs. I mainly work from a solution oriented approach, where one can explore openly, without bias, the most inner and special aspects of themselves.
