About My Clients

I enjoy working with motivated clients who are ready to start work immediately! I enjoy working with BIPOC identified individuals and couples and navigating social justice issues and offering support in processing racial trauma. I find working with medical, emotional, and physical trauma processing one of my strengths. I also greatly enjoying working with the queer and gender diverse community as well as non-traditional relationship dynamics.

My Background and Approach

As an integrative therapist, I incorporate three main theories in my approach to clients. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Mindfulness. With couples, I integrate Attachment Theory and Gottman Couples Therapy. But, as I cater to each and every client specifically, I may incorporate other modalities (such as art therapy) as deemed appropriate to help ensure I am meeting your specific needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in providing affirmative, accessible care for all. Therefore, my group psychotherapy practice is completely online and we only provide telehealth services. If I am unable to take you on at the time you are seeking services, I will recommended one of my associate therapists in my group practice to help get your needs meet more immediately. Reach out today for a free 15 minute consultation and get setup with a therapist quickly! We also book appointments through email and text for ease of access.
