About

Welcome to Shifa Therapy LLC, a space for healing. My goal as your therapist is for you to be seen, valued, and understood as you are. Throughout the process, I will invite you with compassion, patience, and safety so you may explore steps you can take to build new adaptations and thrive once again. At times, we may reflect upon the past to increase awareness, overcome unresolved issues, regain a sense of feeling whole, and experience more fulfillment in the present and beyond.
As a queer person of color, my practice is LGBTQIA-affirming and rooted in antiracism. My approach is trauma-focused, somatic-based, attachment-oriented, relational, and centered on you as a human within your environment. I draw from various modalities in treating teens and adults of diverse intersecting cultural identities and lived experiences.
Starting therapy itself can bring up strong emotions. Take comfort in having these moments to settle and reflect on your needs, wherever you are in your journey. Let's work together on regaining control and furthering growth and healing. I look forward to meeting you.
