We explore how early experiences in your family, community, and cultural context impacted your sense of self.

My Therapy Style

Welcome! I am passionate about empathetically meeting clients where they are and creating spaces for them to explore and express all of themselves without judgment. I understand the work of therapy as empowering yourself to be able to have and learn from your difficult feelings while feeling safe and connected to yourself and others. I work collaboratively with clients, emphasizing curiosity and compassion throughout. Through this approach, we explore how early experiences in your family, community, and cultural context impacted your sense of self, your relationships, and your world, sometimes in ways outside of your awareness.

Education & Training
