About My Clients

I have experience working with anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues and career struggles. Much of my experience is in supporting people of color as well as queer and trans folks.

My Background and Approach

I work primarily with people of color and queer and trans folks coping with anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues. I combine psychodynamic, relational and mindfulness styles while centering radical self-compassion. I believe that healing and liberation come in many different forms and we will work collaboratively to understand your goals and individual needs. I aim to create an open space, free of judgment, to explore thoughts and feelings you may not otherwise have a place to address. One of the first steps toward healing is being seen and heard authentically and in our work together we will begin there. If you are seeking extra support through difficulties you are facing, have the desire to break out of long established patterns that you have outgrown, or looking for a collaborator in working towards growth, I look forward to being a part of your journey. I will both support and gently challenge you along the way.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work through a strengths-based lens. Many of the things about ourselves that we struggle with are also our greatest assets. Therapy can be a place to understand how to amplify our strengths and also identify areas where long-term patterns of thoughts and behaviors are no longer serving us. I believe this perspective is critical in anti-oppressive therapy practice. We can both work to improve and also feel radical compassion for ourselves and each other.
