20 years of experience

My work as a psychotherapist is rooted in a profound belief that by recognizing and honoring our complex, messy life stories with honesty and gentleness, we lay the foundation to heal the obstacles preventing us from building fulfilling, meaningful lives. Throughout life, we all create narratives about ourselves to help us survive. These narratives are shaped by myriad factors (individual life experiences, relationships, intergenerational legacies, and experiences of oppression/privilege, belonging/rejection, among others). Over time, our narratives and coping mechanisms fall short. We wonder, what went wrong? What's wrong with me?

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session, you can expect me to approach our interaction with passion and dedication to your growth and well-being. I am committed to getting to know you on a deeper level, creating a safe space for exploration and understanding. Together, we will work to unravel and process the internalized thoughts and emotions that may be holding you back. I aim to help you connect with your core self, encouraging authenticity and transparency in our discussions. We will explore ways to release any shame from your past, fostering a journey towards self-acceptance and embracing all aspects of who you are. Through our collaboration, we will work towards unlocking your potential and guiding you to become the best version of yourself.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Drawing from over 20 years of clinical training/experience, I provide a compassionate, empathic, culturally responsive, and social justice informed space in which we collaboratively unpack stagnant self-narratives. In coming to this site, you have taken a step toward self-care, healing, growth—toward developing self-awareness.
