About

I see life as a series of moments in which we have opportunities to access, build, and reimagine various aspects of ourselves. Sometimes the events in our lives and the world around us can feel turbulent and overwhelming and on other occasions, we might feel a bit stuck. Navigating those challenging circumstances often leads us to unearth and tap into our personal and collective skills, strengths, and resources. As a part of your support system, I will provide a space where you can authentically express yourself, explore the vision for your life, and cultivate the skills and strategies to achieve your goals.
I take responsibility for being culturally competent and responsive to your lived experience as related to your gender identity and expression, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, spiritual and/or religious beliefs, and ability. My practice is primarily informed by cognitive behavioral, feminist, multicultural, positive psychology, and narrative theory.
Feel free to call, text, or email me to learn more about my approach to counseling and to discuss your unique needs.
