About My Clients

Our early experiences and significant moments can affect how we see ourselves within our own family, community, or social group. The things we can share, and the parts of ourselves we feel like we shouldn't. Therapy is a great space to work through these thoughts and begin to find more balance in your life. Your feelings are valid regardless of what you’ve been told or what your experiences have led you to believe.

My Background and Approach

I work from a humanistic approach, meaning you are a unique person with specific experiences, challenges, and a clear way you see the world. All emotions are acceptable, including anger, sadness, joy, pain, and occasionally humor. Prior to private practice, I worked in several roles specifically with immigrant and refugee communities, HIV/AIDS population, medical social work, and domestic violence. As a psychotherapist, I have focused primarily on anxiety disorders and trauma. I utilize EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness skills. I also enjoy incorporating any "out of the box" coping skills we can develop together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the concept of impermanence. All things, emotions, and people are in a constant state of change. Accepting this change can be freeing whether that means accepting and experiencing pain or being able to embrace the potential joy that comes with change. I believe it is possible to learn ways to befriend yourself, to validate even the parts you may not like today and find internal balance.
