About My Clients

Have you been feeling like you're spinning, like you're lost, or just not yourself lately? Maybe you've been struggling with your relationships or feeling like you just haven't been getting along with your friends and family. Mental health struggles are often a normal part of life; sometimes you need some extra support, and that's okay. I work with clients with a variety of concerns including grief/loss, depression, anxiety, life transitions, identity issues, family conflicts, and more.

My Background and Approach

My goal in therapy is to create a trusting, confidential, and non-judgmental relationship with you, so that you feel safe to explore whatever is on your mind. The name "Let it Shine" signifies a breadth of possibilities... what would you like to shine? Your goals, your potential, your soul, your true self? I believe that many mental health concerns are part of the normal human experience and I aim to help you make sense of the issues, brainstorm solutions, and work to gain more stability in your life. In my work with clients, I celebrate multicultural identities and intersectionality and believe in treating you as a whole person-- we may address thoughts, emotions, physical health, past/present experiences, and the many cultural contexts that influence you. We may spend time exploring the issues, or you may learn practical skills to help you cope and function better.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe mental health is just as important as physical health, and I believe in breaking down the barriers surrounding seeking help and support. We often have unrealistic beliefs about what is means to be human and what is part of a "normal" life. I have spent a lot of my time learning philosophy and theories of psychology and personally believe that there is not "one" right way of being in this world. I have volunteered with the Crisis Text Line where I helped individuals in crisis cope in the moment to be able to move to the next moment safely. I have been trained as an LGBTQ+ ally and am trained in suicide intervention skills and dialectical behavior therapy.
