About My Clients
I believe that healing occurs when people are given the space to explore who they truly are in all aspects of their lives. I am experienced in working with individuals and couples who are navigating life transitions, acculturation, anxiety, and trauma. I have a passion for helping people explore their sexuality, gender, and identity in relation to themselves and to their partners or family. If you are interested in living a more authentic, present life then I may be a great fit for you.
My Background and Approach
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who works from an experiential and client centered approach. I believe that therapy is collaborative and that growth occurs when we utilize your unique strengths and innate wisdom to identify and reach your personal goals. My work comes from an attachment and Emotion Focused lens with an emphasis on the way the mind and body interact to create our experience. I am also a certified AASECT sex therapist and specialize in the exploration of sexuality, gender, identity, and intimacy issues such as desire discrepancies and sexual dysfunction. I also have extensive experience helping clients cope with medical illnesses. We live and thrive through our relationships and together we can find healing in how you relate to yourself and those closest to you.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Within a safe therapeutic relationship, I work with my clients to make meaning out of both mundane and extraordinary moments, unlocking their ability to live a more fully present, authentic life. This means exploring the different pieces that make up who you are and helping you discover and integrate solutions to past and present issues. As a queer woman of color I understand how challenging it may be to trust someone new with the vulnerable and intimate parts of yourself, yet I also have experienced the life changing outcomes of putting attention and work towards personal growth.
