I specialize in individual, couple (including non-monogamous couples) and family therapy. Having grown up bi-racial, and on the border between two countries, I know what it's like to struggle with multiple cultural identities. I have a gentle, yet firm approach to therapy, which can sometimes feel like deep work and sometimes like a conversation with a life-long friend. Whether you're experiencing anxiety, trauma, or simply a desire to work through a challenge, I can help you transform it, see it from a new perspective, or just listen as you talk through it.

I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): a comprehensive, phased treatment approach (developed in 1989 by psychologist Francine Shapiro), that has been extensively researched and proven to be effective for treatment of trauma-based disorders. EMDR "desensitizes and reprocesses" traumatic memories that feel as if "frozen in time."

Everyone processes emotion differently. We all go at our own pace through life. I'm here to go at your pace -- whatever that may be and however that may look -- while providing support along the way. Please visit my website.
