"Hello! I have 13 years of experience working with individuals and couples. To me, therapy is a form of healing that helps us find balance and psychological flexibility through a therapeutic process. Whether it is learning more coping skills or arriving to a new insight about ourselves, it is a journey of understanding our lives better. Through that journey, we will learn WHEN and WHAT to let go or to keep. Exploring what serve us purpose now, even the negative behaviors, can help us understand our past, present and future. "

"Many of us who look like we’re doing fine on the outside secretly struggle with a deep, internal fear that we are not “enough.” Many of us also know the pain of feeling marginalized in various ways. Perhaps we are exhausted managing these difficult thoughts and feelings each day. We are further worn down when others don’t recognize the harm that structural oppression causes us. While we are looking for better ways to navigate the world, we also just long to be understood and supported for the nuanced individuals we are. Can you relate? If so, a trusting relationship with a social justice-minded therapist could be meaningful to you."
