About My Clients

Feeling disconnected from yourself- your intuition? Are you going through significant life changes or transitions? I can help. I work with young adults and adults of all gender and cultural/ethnic identities to find their voice- and start living a more authentic life. I am honored to assist you in navigating your anxiety/depression, life changes, impostor syndrome, racial/cultural trauma, perfectionism, codependency, grief/loss, existential crisis, or spirituality.

My Background and Approach

As part of my approach to therapy, I decide what interventions are suitable for each specific client based on their unique process. Overall, I utilize a multicultural perspective to understand the client through their eyes and account for the ecological differences of each person (socioeconomic status, wealth, poverty, and ethnicity). Due to my background as a trauma informed yoga teacher, I bestow mindful, somatic based practices into therapy and bridge the connection between the mind and body allowing clients to gain self-awareness, self-regulate, and change the course of their lives. As a therapist, I see myself as a guide in empowering you to uncover your strengths and find your truth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My beliefs are in alignment with animism, which is the concept that all elements of the material world—all people, animals, objects, geographic features, and natural phenomena—possess a spirit that connects them to each other. With that said, I believe that love is the supreme law of the land & this is extended to every person in this planet. I am an ally to all marginalized communities, such as the LGBTQ or the Black Lives Matters Movement. May we all come closer to together, rather than become more divided.
