About

As a modern therapist, I provide culturally sensitive, unique, and creative therapy to help individuals and couples. I understand how hard it can be to find a therapist that seems relatable or trustworthy. I work particularly well with individuals navigating trauma, relationships, and identity looking for a therapist that "gets it". This may be an overwhelming point in your life, but pursuing psychotherapy can be one of the most transformative experiences you can take to heal & grow.
As your therapist, I will help you navigate ways your thoughts may be negatively impacting your life. I will help you learn ways to manage and pursue the goal of not allowing anxiety and trauma to derail your days. My role will be to help you explore and identify unclear reasons that prevent you from living or having your envisioned life.
My approach is compassionate and to truly listen. I seek to be in-tune with you as an individual and as a couple. I look forward to you reaching out and starting your process of healing with me.
