About My Clients

My practice is centered around supporting adults who identify as people of color, immigrants (undocumented & documented), children of immigrants, LGBTQI+, and/or vegans.

My Background and Approach

I support clients accept hard and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings and situations that can't be changed and assist them in reconnecting with life values and goals to move beyond symptom management. To do that, I assist in exploring and co-creating an actionable plan in life areas that are important to them. They may include relationships, health, career, finance, education, recreation/hobbies, spirituality, and community. Paradoxically, focusing on accepting heavy feelings and taking steps towards values and goals may lead to feeling better in addition to living more meaningfully. In terms of personal style, I'm direct, kind, respectful, humble, and I appreciate infusing a sense of humor when the right opportunity presents itself. I wholeheartedly believe that the therapeutic relationship anchors the therapeutic work, so to that end- developing and nurturing a genuine relationship is a priority and thought of throughout treatment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Maya Angelou said it best "I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." I believe we're doing the very best we can with what we have and where we are at any given time. In the journey towards change and healing, it helps enormously to exercise acceptance, tenderness, and self-love. We're biologically wired to give and receive nurturance from one another. If you've tried resolving your problems on your own for a long time to no avail, it may be time to consider getting support. Get in touch and I'll be happy to schedule a free consult to talk about your situation. Thanks and let's connect soon.
