About me

I work primarily with people of color, queer and trans folks coping with anxiety, depression, life transitions and relationship issues. I aim to help you tune into how you’re truly feeling, while centering radical self-compassion. Healing and liberation come in many different forms and we will work collaboratively to understand your individual goals and needs. Ours will be an open space, free of judgment, to explore thoughts and feelings you may not otherwise have a place to address. One of the first steps toward healing is being seen and heard authentically and in our work together we will begin there.

Many of the things about ourselves that we struggle with are also our greatest assets. Therapy can be a place to understand how to amplify our strengths and also identify areas where long-term patterns of thought and behavior are no longer serving us.

If you are seeking extra support through difficulties you are facing, have the desire to break out of patterns that you have outgrown, or looking for a collaborator in working towards growth, I look forward to being a part of your journey. I will both support and challenge you along the way.
