About

I am a licensed psychotherapist in the SF Bay Area providing services to individuals in transition regarding personal intersecting identities, alternative relationships, and polyamory. As a seasoned provider with over 20 years of experience, I am interested in working with you holistically to support healing and promote growth. I work with you on exploring some of the underlying issues of unhealthy recurrent patterns in your life and relationships. Empathy, validation, and relationality are key to my work with all clients.
The focus of my work is on clinical issues related to and within context of ethno-racial trauma, immigration, racism, intersecting identities, issues of structural and interpersonal oppression, and collective, historical and childhood traumas.
If you are ready to work on yourself and get a closer look on how past relationships, traumas, racism, migration trans and homophobia impact your personal and professional life and overall functioning please reach out. If in need of a mental health assessment for gender affirming surgeries I can help!
