An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery.

You can finally experience self love and acceptance, fulfilling intimacy, great health, & the ability to enjoy your achievements. You unapologetically set limits &boundaries that are in support of your needs & desires, & let yourself rise into a life where you actually have everything you want because you know in your bones just how worthy you are.

What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.

*Accepting new clients* Your mind is filled with thoughts of worry or fear, your body reacts with uncomfortable sensations, and you want to avoid or escape situations. You often feel sad and don’t understand why, or how to feel relief. You avoid activities that could be enjoyable, which affect your relationships and social life. You lack the motivation or energy for daily tasks that used to be automatic. Maybe you experienced a horrible event, or a painful, stressful period in your life and you believe your life is forever changed. If you experienced this struggle prior to Covid-19, your feelings are likely heightened right now.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.

Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.
