About My Clients

I work with BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples. The people that enjoy working with me are people who have grappled with shame, trauma, and are often their own worst critics. They are needing of self-compassion, curiosity, and safety. Often looking to better the relationship with themselves and their problems, they are often at a loss of how to achieve that.

My Background and Approach

My approach, while ever-deepening, is rooted in anti-racist, decolonized, queer-affirming care. It is non-judgmental and compassionate. The space is yours and together we curate it to make it supportive for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I reject the idea that having mental health issues is a sign of individualistic shortcomings. I believe that often, our mental health struggles in part, come from living in a society that isn’t conducive to mental wellbeing. Issues pertaining to varying parts of our identity, like sexual orientation, gender identity, race, class, (dis)abilities, religion, etc. and how society interacts with these intersecting identities can further exacerbate mental health issues and worsen pre-existing symptoms. I believe that it is vital to have a therapist who is deeply aware and attuned to how systemic issues affect one’s mental health and wellbeing. I aim to provide a space that is affirming, safe, and culturally responsive. I am dedicated to providing a space that helps you explore your intersecting identities in a way that empowers you to find liberation from narratives that other and shame you.
