Are you experiencing issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, loss of identity, trauma, or lack of confidence? Are these issues causing you to neglect your own self-care, misuse substances, and/or isolate from family and friends? Do you need support with navigating personal or professional relationships? Are you exploring your sexual or gender identity? Managing a major life transition or preparing for one? These are the times when therapy can be helpful. We can work together to identify your goals, improve your quality of life, and develop a strong sense of self in the process.
I have extensive experience working with issues of anxiety, depression, stress management, racial trauma, post traumatic stress, relationship conflict, navigating toxic work environments, sexuality and gender, and substance use issues. I utilize a compassionate, strength-based, solution-focused approach.
My goal is to provide a safe, non judgmental space where you can develop insight and understanding of who you are, and to recognize patterns that are holding you back from achieving your personal and/or professional goals. In our work together I will support you in developing new capacities to make the positive changes you want and deserve in your life.
