My work is designed for individuals desiring something new, profound, and meaningful. My professional experience is reflected across the lifespan and in a variety of settings including trauma-work, college counseling, IOP/PHP hospital programming, depression, anxiety, self-injury, career changes, and identity exploration. I interweave evidence-based practice with an emphasis toward radical change to create concise, supportive, and tangible interventions.

It can take great courage to get uncomfortable and come to therapy. As a yoga instructor and counselor, I am often asking my students to acknowledge any uncomfortable feelings that come up in a posture, so that they might gain a better understanding of them and begin to push past it. I ask them to stay mindful of any negative thoughts going on their head and if they can instead focus on their breath, remind themselves this posture is not permanent, and to maybe even smile. In session we will focus on thoughts, emotions, actions, and limiting beliefs to continue to develop a sense of confidence in ourselves.

Therapy is a journey. Sometimes we get lost along the way, but through honesty, affirmation, and connection, strength can be garnered from diversity and difference. I specialize in working with underserved communities like Latinos, LGBT identities, and those in non-traditional relationships. Healing and growth require vulnerability but commitment to the journey will reward you with insight, clarity, and honesty. My practice draws on respect and rapport to identify a path that will tackle the challenges, healing, and growth required to help you live your best life. Together, we will explore what that can mean for your wellness.

Finding the "right" counselor can feel impossible when it's your first time looking, or even when it's your third, fourth, or fifth time after another not-so-great encounter. An accumulation of failed attempts can lead to feeling wary of trying again, making counseling feel less attainable and increasing distress in many individuals, couples, and families of diverse backgrounds. However, when counseling is approached with multicultural and feminist perspectives, it opens up many doors for minority populations seeking to better understand and cope with their mental health, allowing for the possibility of feeling understood.

You’ve always made things work. While racism and sexism aren’t new to you, there’s been an inner strength to bear it and get the job done with work, school, your faith community, or even friends and family. But with everyone in the world talking about injustice, it’s becoming harder to accept the environment that once felt comfortable. You were able to do it before, but now find yourself wondering, “could there be another way?” Counseling can help you sort through these experiences and find a sense of direction.

However, without adequate support, overcoming feelings of overwhelm, sadness, disconnection, or insecurity can be an isolating and exhausting experience.

You may be seeking to feel truly heard and understood without judgment by someone you can trust to help you feel more grounded, confident, and satisfied in your everyday life. As a therapist, my main goal is to create that safe and trusting relationship to guide and empower you towards achieving ultimate personal growth.

This is a space created for people who don’t quite know what “better” looks like, they just know they need it. Let’s work together to uncover yours. I’m already proud of you for challenging the voices in you and around you that have worked against you for quite some time. Now’s the time for your voice to be the loudest one in the room. I just hope you say something kind and gentle because that’s what you deserve to hear. If you can’t do that just yet, that’s okay too. That’s what I’m here for.
