About My Clients

I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, families and couples and do so from a trauma-informed, culturally humble and psychodynamic approach. The reality of systematic racism, oppression and discrimination and its impact on mental health informs my work at a mental health therapist and my practice is aligned with social justice values.

My Background and Approach

I am passionate about building close connections in therapy, with trust and safety being the foundation for the work that we do together. I aim to help people identify patterns in their lives that they wish to change, develop insight into their behaviors, and to help process and work through challenging life experiences (past and present)
