About My Clients

To be ourselves, we must honor the wisdom of our minds and our bodies. I take a holistic approach that can support you in making sense of feelings of confusion and fear, and guide you to become comfortable confronting your pain. I want you to feel accepted as your full self, and explore parts of yourself that often have not felt welcomed. I promise to hear your stories compassionately. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families interested in healing personal or relational struggles.

My Background and Approach

I have experience helping individuals/couples who have experienced loss, have recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness, are in a life transition, or are feeling exiled from their culture or families. I support couples entering a new relationship, committing, or learning to grow with each other. I use psychodynamic therapy which is often a slow and depth-oriented process that supports healing through a relational aspect.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I care deeply about individuals being accepted as their full selves, and helping them gently rewire harmful stories being told or given to them. I am here to support you in rebuilding, holding yourself, falling in love with yourself, unpacking systemic oppression, and grow. I am an active supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community, women, the BIPOC community, and the elderly community. I believe in deconstruction, reconstruction, nonviolence, and transformative justice. The more uncomfortable we become the more we grow in ways that become meaningful.
