I am passionate about working with queer people of color who are struggling to believe that they are enough. Many folks come to therapy to improve their self-esteem and are looking for a safe, nonjudgmental space to do that work. It’s common for my clients to come to therapy feeling isolated and find it challenging to connect with others. They’re hoping to understand why they are feeling so uncomfortable and “walled off” from their emotions and the world around them.
I believe change comes from self-awareness and that there are many ways to build that skill. While I use many approaches, I particularly enjoy unpacking the narratives clients have about themselves and the world. I often incorporate creative arts practices, such as visual arts, dance/movement, and creative writing to facilitate the self-exploration process.
I am a mental health provider because I have seen the transformative impact that therapy can have on individuals and their communities. It's important to me to work with people from underserved and underrepresented communities. If you think we're a good fit, contact me for a 15-minute consultation to learn more about how we can reach your goals.
