About Me

In the midst of your pain, you seek refuge where you can rebuild, restore, and rejuvenate. I understand the depth of your struggles, the silent battles you face, and the fears that haunt you. As a therapist with a heart aligned with yours, I'm here to guide you through this intricate journey toward self-actualization. Though your experience is unique, it isn't isolated; it's shared by many within the LGBTQ+ community who have grappled with anxiety, trauma, and pain. As your therapist it's my mission to walk with you through the darkness, unearthing the tools you need to embrace the light and be embraced by the community. With authenticity and love, I dedicate my work to fostering a safe space where you can find your voice amidst the chaos. Our sessions will blend therapeutic expertise with holistic support tailored to your unique needs. I meet you just where you're at, in a therapeutic style that is gentle yet firm, empathetic yet accountable. As a culturally competent therapist, I provide a space where you can be unapologetically yourself, free from judgment or cultural explanations. In Vivo Center feels like a warm embrace, where you can heal, grow, and find your footing once again. You'll do more than just recover. You'll rediscover resilience, laughter, and joy.
