About My Clients

Since 2011 I've been providing counsel in large part to the global majority/ BIPOC identifying folks. I'm body affirming, sex positive, & a LGBTQi ally. I support motivated, self reflective adults & teenagers in healing trauma and resolving symptoms of anxiety and depression. We will first take time to land together, and will work at your pace, cocreating a plan to address your needs as well as the duration, frequency of therapy, and tools that will best support you at this time.

My Background and Approach

I'm a firm believer that the answers and wisdom we are seeking lie within us. Each person in a universe onto themselves. As an informed guide I provide a transformative space for clients to deeply unwind old hurts, and trauma. Together we create a solid safe container in support of releasing & rewriting old stories and frameworks. I am culturally attuned, trauma informed and have been consistently in continuing education since completing my masters in 2011 [Hakomi, EMDR, Brainspotting, IFS informed, Trauma, DEI, Expressive arts, Attachment, etc.]. Our work together will be collaborative, and attuned to your pace and needs. Alongside this orientation I frequently weave in neuroscience and tools such as Brainspotting and EMDR alongside an IFS informed model. These access and rewire with the subcortical part of the brain where trauma is stored. This will allow your neural pathways to shift, and support you in regulating your nervous system, so you have more access to ease and peace.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My journey as a therapist initially held a strong social justice orientation; which led to working in community mental health for the first 5 years of my career. I provided therapy to urban and foster youth, youth on probation, and led family reunification therapy for foster youth. In 2016 I transitioned to a more sustainable path as a therapist in private practice, and since then have been providing therapy to adults and teenagers in Berkeley, CA, and online. I believe that our liberation is tied up together. Hurt people hurt people, and healed people heal people. From that perspective I'm of the belief that each person that is able to digest old hurts and operate from a peaceful witnessing place within themselves will bring about more health for society at large. This work is a spiritual practice for me; we are each just walking each other home to our true Selves.
