My Therapy Style

My approach to therapy is rooted in the belief that everyone has the ability to heal and grow. I believe that, when we feel safe, heard, and vulnerable, we gain valuable insight into why things have hurt us the way they did, why change has been difficult, and what we need to do to start to change. I strive to create that safe and brave space for us. In that space, we can explore your identities and cultural influences, and I can supplement your growth with my life experience and evidence-based training. Together, we can help you reach your unique goals.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Helping people is one of my most important values. Moreover, my college therapist helped me in a time of need, so, not only do I believe in therapy, but I also love the idea of paying it forward.

What are your interests outside of work?

I like reading sci-fi and fantasy. I play and watch basketball. I watch highly-rated anime, TV, and movies. I play video games on the Switch.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I do mini-mindfulness exercises throughout the day to relieve stress and get back to what I was doing.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I used to work for an organization called School on Wheels. It relied on grants, donations, and volunteers to provide meals, school supplies, and tutoring to homeless children in Skid Row Los Angeles. The people that worked there and volunteered there, and the children that I interacted with were all wonderful and inspiring people.
