About My Clients

You're looking to live a better life, but need some help to get there. A life with less anxiety, depression, ADHD symptoms, or parental stress. You will learn coping skills that you can implement immediately to reduce your symptoms, while we look into what the root cause is. Digging deep can be hard, but I'll be there every step of the way, using humor and humility to get you there. You are the primary driver of sessions - talking about what matters to you.

My Background and Approach

I believe that every person needs to click with their therapist, and if you don't, your not going to make progress. The relationships I form with my clients are one of the best predictors of their success in treatment. You need to feel like you can tell your therapist everything. In every session, I aim to give clients tools they can use right away while we work towards bigger goals. I give clients relief in each session, wrapped in working at harder things. Formally, I have clinical training with children and families, including two master's degrees and ongoing certifications. I ground much of my practice in my own experiences and life lessons while including empirical strategies to achieve solutions that are efficacious and realistic. My approach is humble and collaborative as we work together to find solutions. And above all, I use humor and believe laughter is a medicine.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone deserves a person to talk to, and that therapy is for everyone. I believe that no human is illegal, we should move away from a gendered society, and that it's not my job to judge - it's my job to love. As the wife of an immigrant, a former foster parent, an adoptive mother of a transgendered child, and a social worker committed to social justice for all - I believe in cultural humility - meaning that it's not my place to show up understanding anyone's morals or values, it's always my job to learn. With a Master's degree in Political Science & Social Work, I enjoy processing politics with my clients. I don't identify with any one political party, but love learning more about other's opinions. I believe that the world would be a better place if we all discussed our values, morals, and world-views more. I believe that parenthood is hard. I love empowering other parents with strategies that work and providing a space for parents to process too.
