Sometimes it’s hard to find who you truly are, when the world is constantly telling you who you should be. Being able to navigate the therapeutic process can feel really challenging at times, and terrifying to begin. I put a lot of emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, as I believe this relationship is crucial for change. I aim to create a safe and affirming space that encourages and promotes communication, acceptance, and growth. I want to create a place that challenges you to reach your goals, while fostering healing.
As a marriage and family therapist, I work from a strengths-based systems approach. I view therapy as a collaborative effort between therapist and client. I have experience working with people of all walks of life. I work with young adults, adults, and aging adults, to work through challenges they have faced, such as, gender expression and identity, sexuality, race-related issues, depression, anxiety, adapting to lives changes, self-esteem, family conflict, relationship issues, intimate partner violence and trauma, and unhealthy relationships. Within this space I have a specific interest in working with people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. My role is to help you overcome the challenges you have encountered, and to help you discover and create a new sense of self in the world.
In the end, I strive to create an empowering therapeutic environment for those who have been dismissed by society, who are marginalized, and have been excluded from spaces such as this.
