About My Clients

I’ve worked with people who have experienced anxiety, depression, intense trauma, anger issues and substance abuse. This diversity in my work experience has led me to an understanding that all people share the universal experience of fear, sadness and worry—and that all people, no matter how impossible it seems, are capable of change.

My Background and Approach

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). To facilitate change, I work to create an open and trusting space for you to share and gain insight into their authentic selves. As a mindful non-directive therapist, I work to help you become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, actions and bodily sensations through reflection and openness. I also work to provide knowledge and tools for you to better manage anxiety attacks, dissociation, depressed mood and more. I also help client's explore the role that their social identities play in their barriers for change. Together, we can explore your the way the world interacts with you, how you interact with the world and how those things impact your ability to cope with daily life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

One of the reasons I made the decision to become a therapist was because I recognized the impact of my own healing on the people I surround myself with. I realized that my own openness with myself translated to openness with others, and that allowed others to share parts of themselves they didn’t believe could be accepted by others. This level openness is extremely healing! It allows us to work better, earn better, care better, play better! People in POC and LGBTQ+ communities NEED that! We need to thrive instead of just survive. That is why I take my work as a healer very seriously. Therapy is my activism. The more we can grow, the more we can help our communities grow and break these systems of oppression we have so long been harmed by. Take the time to care for yourself. If not for you, do it for your community. You owe it to your people to be the best you possibly can.
