Being multicultural can feel as though you are playing a constant game of tug-of-war, being thrown every direction, all the while never landing in a safe space where you fully “belong.” Feeling chronically unseen and unheard has consequences. We endlessly strive for acceptance through people-pleasing and questioning our worth, leaving us disconnected – blind to our deepest selves. My approach is built upon the idea that we are always “enough," and that we can cultivate belonging by giving our unacknowledged struggles a voice. By daring to embody what that coveted landing space looks like, we can own the self we present to the world.

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in working with ethnic minorities, survivors of trauma (specifically survivors of interpersonal trauma), and LGBTQIA+ individuals. I approach therapy from a multicultural, feminist, strength-based, and relational perspective. I will see you as a whole person with multiple (sometimes incompatible) identities. I aim to empower you to use your voice. Just like being in any other relationship, I believe the therapist-client match is very important. Together, we will work together to address the issues you are coming in with by learning more about yourself and how you interact with others.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.
