As a therapist, my goal is to work with people who are motivated to work towards progress in their lived experience through the therapeutic process. I have a humanistic and solution focused perspective to therapy which includes includes increased self-awareness regarding insights into your experiences of mental health distress, socio-economic issues as well your strength. I believe in a collaborative approach towards treatment planning and goals.

My clinical focus includes anxiety, anger management, women’s issues, complex stress in marginalized communities. Effective therapy recognizes the whole person—challenges, strengths, and environment. I love to incorporate creative interventions to increase self-awareness, promote self-efficacy, and emotion regulation to help clients reach their wellness goals. My integrative holistic approach to treatment includes CBT, Narrative therapy, Somatic therapy, and MBSR. Living as a BIPOC Queer therapist, I am committed to helping anyone learn how to thrive as the best person they can be based on one's strengths, lived experiences and challenges. I have a passion for diversity and advocacy which includes an awareness of disparity and invisibility of people of color, LGBT+ persons in the clinical mental health and education.
