I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

I became a therapist to aid others in overcoming the hardships they are facing. As human beings, we all stumble on times when it is difficult, and sometimes we can feel misunderstood and lost. I wanted to aid people in finding their path again, while offering support, trust, and safety. I work with young adults and adults who are going through life transitions related to school, work, and relationships. My other areas of interest include anxiety, depression, communication skills, trauma, and healthy relationships. I also have experience working with the LGBTQIA community in regards to coming out, sexual and identity development, transgender, and transitioning.

Reaching out for support takes strength and courage. I respect this, and my aim is to create a calm, inviting atmosphere where a deep sense of trust can grow between client and therapist. Fostering safety is essential to my way of practice, as I believe it is a crucial element of health and healing. I specialize in treating adolescents and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, grief and loss, and issues relating to sexual/gender identities. I value long-term, insight oriented work aimed at creating a more holistic understanding of self.

"Direct," "empathetic," "non-judgmental," and "gentle" is how clients describe my approach. With respect, care, and guidance toward empowerment, my expertise is working with individuals, couples, and families navigating relationship obstacles, adult/child survivors of sexual abuse, LGBTQ clients, women of color, South-Asian clients, and clients from all walks of life. I believe that trust and comfort are the foundation of each client/therapist relationship. This journey, which begins with what I know as a very difficult first step, is about you.

I utilize a growth-oriented approach to empower people to problem solve and make changes to pursue the life they envision. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies are used in my practice, with an emphasis on the use of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, to equip people with the skills needed to overcome life’s stressors and challenges. In dialectics, we acknowledge the opposing sides of each experience and work together to synthesize the two. I prioritize developing a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship that will meet you where you are at in your journey, and will come alongside you to cultivate your strengths.

Life experiences and the thoughts and feelings we have about them can be overwhelming to figure out and make sense of alone. I believe that the therapeutic relationship fostered with clients is a safe space where you can truly be seen, heard, and feel comfortable being your authentic self. I help clients make sense, make meaning, and manage the difficult challenges and symptoms experienced throughout your daily lives (and past). I'm LGBTQ affirming, and I practice as an integrative, intersectional-feminist relational trauma therapist who operates from an anti-racist/anti-oppressive lens.

As a therapist, I believe it is my role to help you discover and connect with your strengths so you can begin to live the life you want to life. Everybody goes through ups and downs in life - that is part of the normal human experience - and sometimes we need some extra support. Therapy is a great tool to help you build coping skills, explore what's holding you back, and create a plan to help you move forward and achieve your goals.

We often seek therapy because ways we’ve learned to navigate the world aren’t working the way they used to or the way we’d like them to. Sometimes these strategies cause us pain and sometimes they cause pain to others. Our work involves uncovering strategies we’ve learned to survive in the world and understanding where they come from. Once we understand their origin and function, we can develop awareness of when they arise in the present and make choices to navigate differently.

There may be times when we feel disconnected from others – or worse, ourselves; when we’re overwhelmed and crave calmness and connection; when we feel stuck and desire change but don’t know how to make a move; when we can't manage what we’re feeling or thinking, and it’s too much to carry alone. There may be times when we carry shame and/or self-doubt; when we don’t feel we fit in or are having difficulty finding our voice, our community, or our life’s work. Or, perhaps, things are going ok but we’re curious about our creativity or spirituality and are seeking ways to integrate these missing aspects into our daily lives.
