As a BIPOC woman, do you feel isolated, scrutinized, and uncomfortable setting boundaries? Does it take monumental effort to get through everyday tasks? Perhaps you want to wear that cute new outfit, lipstick, or hairstyle, but are too self-conscious to be the center of attention. You are not lazy, unmotivated, or unfocused. These may be symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma-induced disfunctions, including those caused by the repeated micro-aggressions experienced by sexual, gender, racial, and ethnic minorities. Therapy can help.

Are you getting a little restless from surviving day to day? Are you struggling in relationships with yourself or others? The past year has been a painful lesson in the necessity of connection. You may feel emotionally isolated from others. You may be fighting to find your voice in the face of injustices affect AAPI and BIPOC , LGBTQIA+, and neurodiverse individuals which are built into the framework of our society. Maybe your struggle is closer to home, and you want to support your kids or explore your own needs and values. If you’re wondering where to start, you’re in the right place.

From my own personal experience of exploring and understanding my own identity (sexuality, gender, ethnicity and more), to my education/experience around working with LGBTQ+ and BIPOC individuals and the dedication I have to educating others on LGBTQ+ issues, mental health and more, I can support you!.
When I was in high school, I struggled with my sexuality. The struggle lead to maladaptive coping skills, depression and anxiety. I felt so alone, scared, and like no one understood what I was going through! I needed help but I was too afraid to ask for it! One day, a school counselor, who I've never interacted with before, noticed that something was wrong with me and she reached out, gave me a helping hand, and put me into group therapy with other teens like me! I wasn't alone any more, I wasn't the only one questioning my sexuality, there were other kids like me! Getting help was the first step towards acceptance and self-love!

I help people understand themselves. When you understand yourself - your patterns, your perspective - you can change whatever isn't working in your life, and invite in more of what is. If you're struggling - with sadness, constant worry, difficult family or romantic relationships, feeling discontent or just plain stuck - I can help you move forward. I provide a friendly, comfortable space where you can relax and talk frankly. I listen actively, and offer fresh insights and feedback, as well as new skills and strategies for you to try. You will leave with new things to try out and more hopeful for the future.

Many people seek out therapy for different reasons sometimes for loss, trauma, life transitions, anxiety and depression, feeling stuck in life, and sometimes for help adding coping skills for day to day life. My approach to therapy is mainly rooted in CBT and Mindfulness, working with you to examine how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and how by navigating through changes in our lives with a more present and focus lens we can minimize anxiety and add to our coping skills toolbox. By taking a mindfulness approach, we will find ways to navigate through past experiences and the curve balls life throws at us.

My ideal client is human; inherently flawed and curious. This human is seeking collaboration, a non-judgmental space in which to grow, thrive, and learn through relational education between themselves and ultimately with others. The path chosen is ultimately one of healing, reconciliation, acceptance, growth, and forgiveness. The decision made to show up in therapy is a huge first step to move from surviving and stagnation to thriving and introspection. It is my honor whenever I have the opportunity to take this journey with you.
