"I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it."

"I have witnessed many times the power of psychotherapy to improve people's lived experiences. I approach clinical practice with the belief that personal development and larger social change go hand in hand and that bringing about social justice necessitates that we transform as individuals, communities, and societies. Psychotherapy with me is grounded in recognizing the global factors (oppressions and privileges) shaping individuals while incorporating an understanding of personal responses to lived experience."

"If I had a magic wand and you got everything you wanted out of therapy, how would you be different? Are negative thoughts ruining your mood? Is your inner critic robbing you of joy? Are you wanting ease and confidence? Unrelenting worrying and beating yourself up can be exhausting and hard to transform without great tools. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the 'gold standard' treatment for anxiety and low self-esteem. CBT is an active approach that offers concrete methods to powerfully shift the way you think and feel. We'll create goals and work actively to meet them so you can feel great and keep it that way. "

"My therapeutic approach is based on the principal of honoring people’s complexities, where all aspects of oneself are welcome. Too often I find that as a survival strategy, we have to leave aspects of ourselves behind or allow certain aspects to take precedence over others. By developing greater awareness of all aspects of ourselves and bringing them all into dialogue, we are able to move toward a greater sense of wholeness. As a therapist, I am especially committed to supporting the Latinex and immigrant communities, as well as people who identify as queer, LGBTQQI-TS, gender-queer, gendervariant, and gender non-conforming."
