Hello. I am a psychotherapist and mental health care professional who values not only the creative attributes of the mind but also the wisdom of the body and soul. My presence-oriented, client-centered approach, helps me connect in a way that empowers the change and growth you desire. I offer practical tools and guidance that support you to achieve wellness and balance. My areas of specialty include trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-esteem, relationships, and creativity. I am well-versed in teaching coping skills, self-regulation, and mindfulness practices. Somatic-based, psychodynamic, depth, art, narrative, and CBT are some of the therapeutic modalities I apply. I have also facilitated mindfulness and trauma-informed, self-regulation practices to groups. Because I care deeply about supporting my clients through times of need, the relational guidance and support I maintain helps clients achieve their goals and overcome challenges. I especially connect with those who are struggling to find their way through life transitions, and the difficulties encountered along the way. My own life experience informs and gives insight into these struggles, and my open, authentic, and non-judgmental personality helps clients to feel safe and at ease. Building trust and openness is key to my work, and I value each and everyone’s unique story and journey. I also have a background in the creative and professional arts and this experience gives me a unique insight into supporting those who are creatives. Additionally, I have an insider's perspective on cross-cultural issues and understand some of the challenges one meets when living in a country different from where they were born. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in East-West psychology with a focus on imaginal practices and their transformative potential.

I’m here to encourage you to become the person you would like to be. ***Online counseling is NOT recommended for persons who: - are currently dependent on drugs or alcohol or have a recent history of substance abuse. - are suicidal, homicidal, or experiencing suicidal or homicidal ideation. - are in crisis. (*If you are in need of crisis services, please contact 911, call the National Suicide Hotline at 988, or go to your local emergency room for immediate help.*) If you meet any of the criteria listed above, online counseling will not offer an adequate level of support to meet your needs at this time. I would recommend face-to-face sessions which may offer the level of contact and engagement that would be most beneficial to you.***
