With experience working with diverse individuals such as BIPOC, immigrants, and blended families. I specialize in supporting individuals who struggle with trauma, anxiety, depression, cultural/ racial trauma, and relational issues. I offer a client-centered, strengths-based approach to processing emotions and attachment experiences, as well as build coping skills (i.e., mindfulness, emotional regulation, frustration tolerance, etc.) while providing interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Emotional Freedom Technique, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

I became a therapist because I have personally experienced therapy as an effective way to heal and grow stronger, become more loving, and grow into my true self. Consequently, I want to share the gift of therapy by walking alongside and supporting others during their time of need and growth.
I experience the fullness of life when I am in nature, hiking, biking, and exploring the world.
Daily exercise, such as dancing, biking, and swimming, helps me to maintain my mental and emotional wellness.
I recharge by connecting with friends and family on a weekly basis, engaging in spiritual practices with my faith community, and being active, whether indoors on a spin bike or outdoors hiking.
