About My Clients

Someone seeking support from me may come from a background where they have felt ignored, silenced, invisible and overwhelmed. You may also be seeking an opportunity for deep reflection in order to grow. I work well with children (ages 3-12), caregivers who want a stronger relationship with their children, & young adults who want to have more quality relationships (intimate & platonic). I also provide friendship counseling for all ages!

My Background and Approach

I am currently in my final semester of becoming a doctor in the field of psychotherapy. I believe in building an authentic relationship with people I work with in order to fully acknowledge any shame or guilt that may be preventing us from that next step forward. I use a diversity lens and look at the whole person when developing where to go in the healing process. I will create a dialogue with you to determine the best way to approach your path to your goals and growth in order for you to develop a sense of safety and connection in your healing. I value the importance of the language we use with ourselves and others since language is a large part of how we build empathy and connection. I take a collaborative approach in order to empower you while also checking in when you are ready for tools towards change. I utilize mindfulness practices for feelings of sadness, nervousness, worry, overwhelm, and relationship hurts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in community and supporting one another. I fully stand with the Black Lives Matter movement and am an active member in the LGBTQIA+ community. I believe in taking action towards change and do so by participating in educational trainings, book clubs, and conversations in my personal/academic life about actively dismantling oppressive systems. I also believe that as someone working in the mental health field, it is my responsibility to maintain my personal mental health while continuously advocating for those I work with. I believe that it is important to normalize emotions and share authentically in order to build boundaries with ourselves and others. I do my best to break down my colonized education and translate that into working with others in order to foster relationships. It is important to me that you feel you can candidly talk with me and be an active part of your personal growth.
