I also specialize in helping interracial couples, LGBTQAI+ identifying BIPOC , and those struggling with racial identity.
Welcome! Congratulations on taking the first step on this adventure. I know finding the right therapist can be hard and a grueling process. For many clients this is the first time they have asked for help. I am passionate about creating a space for clients that is safe, freeing & nonjudgmental. I hope to do this through my multicultural background, interest in the client's perspective and the therapeutic relationship built. I operate from a systems & contextual framework where I believe clients are stuck, not sick. I work with clients to create goals and plans that are collaborative and empowering.

I specialize in working with the LGBTQQIAP+ community, the BIPOC community, trauma, grief, and loss.
Of the 10,080 minutes in a week, you will have 50 minutes to walk with a companion on your journey as you tell your beautiful and unique story. If you are exploring your gender and/or racial identity, let's work toward identifying how YOU want to. Coming out and navigating life as a member of the LGBTQQIAP+ community can be scary, but we can work on making it a little easier for YOU. Exploring your spirituality can feel overwhelming, but we can reduce that feeling for YOU one step at a time. You may notice a theme in the work we can do together. That theme... it is YOU.

Ideally, therapy has been shown to have the best outcomes when you feel like your therapist gets you. Therapy is a relationship, rather than a set of instructions. My approach is warm, interactive, practical, and empathic, and I draw from relational, feminist, trauma-informed, anti-racist treatment models. I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship, along with helping you contextualize your life experiences, honoring your expertise in your own life.

Sometimes, life challenges us with painful experiences that can leave us feeling overwhelmed. These deep and untreated wounds can hinder one's ability to be their true authentic self and live an empowered life. My goal is to provide my clients with a safe space to explore, challenge, and remove harmful patterns in their lives and create transformational healing. Using a collaborative approach, I walk alongside my clients as they develop new awareness, empathy, and meaning in their lives. I strive to unburden my clients from anxiety, depression, relationship distress, unhelpful narratives, and trauma to enhance life satisfaction.

I believe that the main goal of therapy is to help us come to terms with our past and move on with our lives. What helped us adapt to our environment before, may be maladaptive now. We may experience traumatic situations, and these situations may negatively impact the way we see ourselves, the way that we see others, the way that we see the world, and the way that we see our future. The good news is that with courage, curiosity and introspection we can change even the most deep-seated negative beliefs about ourselves and others; we can become aware of and change the way we react.

Sometimes we get stuck in patterns. We may struggle with self-acceptance, find ourselves in a "You vs. Me" relationship dynamic, feel detached from our sexual self, or feel hopeless about our situation because we tried multiple solutions that just didn't seem to work. Deep down we want better for ourselves but we just don't know how to achieve it. This is where therapy can help. Think of therapy as a unique place that yanks you out of your everyday life and gives you or your relationship(s) the space to be vulnerable and heard, to have a better and more accurate understanding of what you or your relationship need.
