About

For the past 15+ years, I have had the pleasure of helping individuals and couples find relief from life's stressors. I work with a wide range of concerns and am especially effective with life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship, LGBTQ, grief, and family stressors. I aim to provide a safe, supportive, confidential space to help you deepen your self-understanding, change problematic patterns, and enhance self-esteem. As a feminist and multicultural psychologist, I am also sensitive to the ways oppression and marginalization affect psychological wellbeing, and I welcome clients from diverse backgrounds and identities.
I view transitional times as opportunities to reevaluate your life path, and I enjoy helping you discover what new version of yourself will bring you more fulfillment as well as how to overcome the obstacles to you achieving your full potential. Together, we will help you find more life satisfaction as you solidify your values and build the life you want.
I also specialize in Couples Therapy. When selecting a couple's therapist, it is essential that they have formal training to ensure your relationship is in good hands. I have advanced training in EFT, one of the most effective couples approaches validated by research. I'd love to help in the next phase of your journey, so please don't hesitate to reach out!
