About

“There is no greater agony than bearing the untold story inside you.” - Maya Angelou. Each person’s story shapes them and a burden to carry alone that is relieved when met with empathy. I consider it an honor to be present with clients as they share their untold story, gain greater self-knowledge, and manifest the story that is yet to come. I come from a place of curiosity and non-judgement around each individual’s lived experience. I hope to create a warm, accepting space where you can be your authentic self, feel safe to express your uncensored thoughts and share both laughter and tears.
I specialize in working with teenagers and adults who are struggling with issues of identity or interpersonal challenges due to interpersonal, racial or gender-based trauma. I also have experience working with couples experiencing challenges with sex, pre-marital concerns, separation/divorce, and general communication and conflict.
At Roots & Branches Therapy, we endeavor to serve a diverse client base. We welcome clients from all beliefs and backgrounds; from all racial, ethnic, sexual or gender identities as well as those in monogamous or polyamorous relationships. We strive to balance our client base between sliding scale, in-network, and full fee clients.
