The therapeutic relationship is one that I hold close to my heart, as it is a piece of the puzzle that allowed me to flourish into my true self. I know firsthand what it is like to struggle and feel as though the obstacles ahead appear to be near impossible, whether big or small. While in the moment they may seem insurmountable, truly these experiences become the seeds of transformation and the foundation for stepping into our greatest possibilities in life. I invite you to explore your struggles collaboratively in a non-judgmental and safe space to cultivate greater self-acceptance, empowerment, and strength as you reclaim your inner knowing. I’m looking forward to supporting you as you step into new possibilities in this healing and transformative journey.

I started my career as a marriage and family therapist working in residential settings with youth in the foster care and juvenile justice systems. As a child, I experienced trauma when my family had to flee as refugees from a war-torn country. Applying my own history and experiences, I am able to connect with my clients, understand their experiences, and help them deal with their trauma head-on. As a clinician, I try to understand each individual holistically, including their background and the strengths they already possess, to provide an individualized approach.
