As human beings, we all have a deep need for connection. This connection is often challenged and disrupted by experiences throughout our lives. Consequently, we all experience some level of disconnection. This experience of disconnection can lead to anxiety, inadequate coping skills, depression, poor emotional regulation, substance use, and many other dis-eases. The good news is that we all have the potential to reconnect with our authentic self and heal. My approach to therapy and healing involves reconnection with our true selves, our body, and the present moment through compassionate listening, non-judgement and curiosity.

People's stories are one of the most valuable things we have in life. If you want to have a meaningful relationship with someone, you need to be able to understand your own story. Helping individuals to develop and enhance their personal stories is at the crux of my work as a therapist. We all have public and private lives, and I believe the power of developing the stories behind these separate selves is how people vividly change their lives.

I love supporting teens, young adults, and adults as they work to accept themselves, trust their own intuition, and get "unstuck" from past experiences and big losses.

Our lives evolve in relationship to ourselves, our partners, our families, communities and other beings (e.g. animals & the land). Healing involves allowing a healthy flow of emotion, communication, care and balance in those areas where we find ourselves stuck. I specialize in working with international and interracial couples and families; and anxiety related disorders including traumatic stress, generalized anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety from a multicultural perspective. I am fully bilingual and multicultural and will bring to our work my life experience across cultures and my professional training.

I believe that life is a journey and although it is so often wondrous and joyful, it can also present unique challenges for us as human beings. These challenges can leave us feeling confused, overwhelmed, scared and alone at times. Counseling can be supportive in helping to restore emotional balance and deepen our sense of aliveness and well being. In my work with clients, I draw on strategies that assist people in exploring ways that they can move towards self-compassion and a more integrated sense of self.

Does it feel like you wear a mask in everyday life? As if there’s a disconnect between your true self and what you show to others. Maybe you feel disconnected from yourself and uncertain what it even means to feel connected to your body and aligned with your soul. Do you want to be guided by your intuition but feel it’s clouded by fear and shame? Does a judgmental inner critic control most of your thoughts and you don’t know how to stop it? You have awareness that things need to change and now it’s exploring how to make these changes. As Thich Nhat Hanh said, “Mindfulness must be engaged. Once there is seeing, there must be acting."

I support individuals, couples, and families who want to reconnect to themselves and each other. Many clients come to me to learn how to identify and communicate their needs, understand recurring patterns in their life, process difficult experiences, and connect to their intuition and authenticity. So often in life we have to hide certain parts of ourselves to be accepted. In therapy together you won’t need to filter or mask yourself to be respected or understood. I love working with all types of people and have additional experience working with adults on the spectrum and those in mixed neurotype relationships.

**Currently Waitlist Only** I believe that equity and trust are essential to working together toward finding solutions and gaining awareness. While I am informed on a wide range of therapeutic approaches, I use what is best for each client. I tend to lean towards using Solution-Focused, Structural, and Narrative therapy styles. I like for our work together to be interactive and empowering. In my free time you can find me interacting with water in any way I can - be it a river, the ocean or a pool.
