I specialize in working with families struggling with perinatal issues, fertility, adoption, child loss, and adjusting to parenting life.
Finding a therapist who really "gets you" is a crucial part of change. I work with individuals and couples who want a trusting and collaborative relationship. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns and from diverse cultures. I use a holistic and multicultural approach with every client, to better understand their unique experiences and provide treatment that is effective for them. I also focus therapy around helping white folks process their own positive racial identity (anti-racist) and find balance between speaking up and listening.
