About My Clients

You're aware of the underlying issues you've been ignoring... yet they're causing you to have anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or more. Maybe you've experienced the trauma of an abusive childhood, dysfunctional relationships, or other traumas. You're aware of the things affecting your mental health, but you're not sure how to handle them. You're not sure how to deal with them, and they feel so big and confusing. But now you're ready to work through them with the support of a professional.

My Background and Approach

I'm glad you've made it here. With years of experience behind me and a thirst for constant learning, I can help you understand yourself better, work through the tough stuff and heal. I can help you learn how to be mindful of your psychology to function better and enjoy your life! No matter what you've been through, you deserve to live a happy 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. I use a variety of techniques that are rooted in scientific research and also come from a place of compassion and empathy for you.

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. Most people have the capacity to change, grow, and become the person they want to be, sometimes they just need some support through that process. We are not taught how to process emotion, radically accept ourselves, and cope in healthy ways. With a little guidance, we can get better at this and thrive! 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.
