About Me

I meet clients where they are and offer treatment that is LGBTQIA+ affirming and culturally responsive. I am devoted to working with individuals facing various issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar, ADHD, grief, and life transitions. I believe clients are the experts of their lived experience, and therapy is an investment in one’s success and empowerment. My therapy practice is person-centered and trauma-informed, emphasizing collaboration and skill building. I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness, EMDR, and expressive arts to address unhelpful ways of thinking and the bodily impact of stress and trauma. I believe in the transformative power of honoring the mind and body—to heal and connect deeply with oneself and one’s community—which I bring into the therapeutic process.

Education & Experience

With a background in the arts and education, I have 15 years of experience helping individuals attain their goals. I am trained to implement EMDR and other somatic modalities. My education enables me to incorporate evidence-based and person-centered practices in culturally sensitive ways.
