"When you've decided to get help, seeking a psychologist you feel comfortable with is as important as their skill and training. If I'm so honored to have you as my client, you'll find I utilize an integrated approach; a mix of gentle yet direct communication, mindfulness, cultural dynamics including family systems, psychoeducation, skill building using cognitive behavioral techniques, and of course explorative questions that help to uncover the emotional obstacles to your healing and progression in life."

"Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate. To see things creatively is to see symptoms as keys to recovery and radical healing. Before I was a therapist, I was a visual artist and writer. So not only have I been able to see things through a critical lens, I learned to appreciate imagery, symbolism and metaphor in life. "

"I believe therapy is a place where one can get unconditional support to find one's true self, and find guidance to blossom to one's full capacity. Most of us struggle, as we stray from our original path, and our inner compass informs us of this. Therapy offers a sanctuary, where you can honestly face and better understand how you struggle, and how you can more fully connect with yourself and others. We do this by talking, feeling, and sensing through your experience, in a safe, supportive environment. It is based on trust and respect. This is a vulnerable, challenging and deeply rewarding process."

Whether you want to focus on specific discrete concerns, or wish to explore broader, longer standing challenges, therapy can be useful in understanding how aspects of one‘s temperament and relational tendencies can interfere with living life authentically, and with reaching one’s full potential. By addressing issues in real-time, while also considering the impact of situational factors and past experiences, therapy can help to identify areas of one’s life to examine and possibly change.

I believe that through a meaningful relationship, we can work together to help you understand why you are suffering and how you can have more options for relating to yourself and others.
