"As a queer-identified woman of color, I understand the unique issue of identity exploration and intersectionality. Growing up bicultural has allowed me to develop a unique approach to psychotherapy. I appreciate the coping tools people bring to the table. Often, these coping tools are learned through cultural practices or personal beliefs deeply integral to the clients’ identity. I believe that it is important to foster this intuitive well of healing, strength, and resilience and to also empower you with new tools, so that you can better cope with issues such as stress, depression and anxiety."

"The ideal client is prepared for a new journey and experience. Clients who work with me soon realize that their strength and freedom comes from within. They feel liberated from their emotional constrains and fears. Through therapy, my clients discover that "They" are the creators and drivers of their own lives. They experience emotional freedom that, in turn brings more balance in their lives. Clients achieve stress relief, improve their self-esteem and self-concept, and experience increased levels of satisfaction in their relationships.

"Difficulties, problems and failures are normal aspects of life and sometimes we don’t understand or relate to them very well. We formulate ideas, notions and perceptions about how life should, but inevitably life does get rocky from time to time. Counseling can offer the additional insight for self-discovery and newfound understanding. Eventually through a deeper understanding of our patterns and storylines more freedom and liberation is possible for finding our best self. "

But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
