My specialties include perinatal mental health, trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, self-esteem, adjustment and transitional issues, and relationship difficulties. I also have significant experience working with professionals struggling with perfectionism. I am a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional and am also trained in EMDR therapy.
My approach is warm and collaborative. With a strong relationship as the foundation, I'll help you gain insight, problem-solve, find relief, and sustain meaningful change. We'll work together to develop awareness, challenge unhelpful patterns, and implement strategies that allow you to be the person you want to be. I take an individualized approach and consider your background and identities to be central to understanding you, your strengths, and your challenges.
In my practice I strive to provide a therapeutic relationship that honors and affirms diversity and recognizes the complexity of each individual. I am passionate about providing care that is culturally sensitive and takes into consideration each patient’s intersecting identities and backgrounds. I have undergone and continue to seek out training and education that is multiculturally informed. Likewise, I am experienced and passionate about working with individuals from various ethnic, gender, sexual, and socioeconomic backgrounds, especially those who experience oppression, marginalization, discrimination, and belong to underserved populations. I consider myself an ally to the BIPOC, APIDA, LGBTQ+, and undocumented populations.
