I believe that everyone can learn how to heal themselves through addressing their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves. I work to provide a safe space to my clients to explore the many facets of their identities, including culture, race, ethnicity, religion, spirituality, gender, and sexuality. My approach to therapy is to meet my clients where they are, infusing humor when appropriate, and empowering them to find their own path toward greater health.
In my own life, I fought my way through the pressures of chronic pain, anxiety, and depression, and I wouldn’t have made it without my support team. Now I want to be that for you. I think that everyone can face challenges head-on to build the life they really want. As a therapist, I believe that my clients are the experts of their own lives, and I seek to build a partnership that is authentic, sincere, and empowering. I want to bring my outside perspective, clinical training, and unique skill set to help you toward your goals.
I see clients ranging from children to adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, chronic pain, life transitions, as well as severe and persistent mental illnesses (SPMI’s) and emotional behavioral disorder (EBD). My style is holistic, blending mindfulness and somatic awareness with self-analysis so you can take more conscious steps toward the future you want.
