I make it my mission to help people get unstuck. I thrive on helping others break cycles. I work with individuals, families, and couples from ages 5 on wards.

Whether you are having difficulties navigating the nuances of a relationship, parenting, multicultural issues, gender identity issues, self esteem or anxiety, I can help. I believe that you are a person first and my approach is to understand you first as an individual, then how your environment impacts you, and lastly how we can align your goals and visions into action. Life is not easy, and sometimes you need someone in your corner to help with insight and to empower you to achieve your full potential. Whatever that means for you, I am passionate about my work as a therapist, and I am here to help you navigate your life stressors
