About me

As you know, life can be complicated, painful and messy. We all have experiences that can be difficult to navigate alone and times when we would benefit from extra support. There might be times when we know the changes we want to make but may not completely understand what is getting in the way of making those changes. Therapy is an opportunity to better understand ourselves, to clarify our needs and expectations, and to discover our strengths. We will work together to create a space in which you feel comfortable sharing what is weighing on your mind and your heart without judgment. We will explore any related underlying patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving you. I will support you, encourage you and challenge you. With a diverse therapeutic background, I tailor my approach to help you meet your individual goals.

My personal and professional experiences have increased my depth of understanding of how family, society, culture, intersecting identities, religion/spirituality, politics, languages, and intergenerational history can shape and influence who we are, our sense of belonging and connection, and our ways of coping with the challenges we face. I value the importance of considering the interplay of sociocultural context, the mind, and the body in understanding the nature of your concerns. I aspire for my clients to truly feel that they can be themselves, to speak freely about what they think and feel, and to work together to address their concerns.
