About My Clients

I specialize in working with adults (18+) who are self-critical and perfectionistic. These are folx who tend to also be high-performing, high-achieving, and incredibly ambitious. What if you could treat yourself the way you treat your friends or loved ones? . As a therapist, I strive to foster a space where you can pause, take a breath, and feel the emotions we’ve learned to tuck away so that it doesn’t hamper our productivity or burden others.

My Background and Approach

My practice is informed by the idea that in a secure, compassionate, and honest relationship, we can feel brave enough to feel, think, and talk about some of the hardest and most vulnerable things in our life. My approach is collaborative, feeling-forward, and interactive with attention to your individual and cultural background. I provide integrative therapy that blends three evidence-based models - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Multicultural Therapy. When you feel safe enough in a relationship, you're more likely to dig deep, be honest with yourself, notice and challenge patterns, making conscious decisions, and create the life you know you deserve.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the way we see ourselves and navigate the world around us are informed by our early experiences, culture, and relationships. As an adult, we may follow this blueprint but may start noticing that ways of coping or relating are not as effective as they once were. In therapy, I want to hear the story that you tell yourself when you get self-critical. I strive to gently disrupt that narrative and help you cultivate a balanced and more self-compassionate view of yourself that still honors your life experiences.
