I utilize person-centered and strengths-based approaches to help you identify how your life experiences impact how you interact with the world. I work with adults struggling with traumatic life experiences. I understand therapy can be intimidating and overwhelming, and I work with you every step of the way to identify and work towards your goals.
I specialize in multicultural counseling focused on racial identity, life transitions, and trauma. I work with you through a variety of challenges including anxiety, PTSD, cultural assimilation, and depression. I’m a big fan of real talk, understanding how systemic forms of oppression affect the mental health of BIPOC communities, & practicing self-compassion.
I am honored to walk beside you on healing your journey and want to ensure you have a safe space to explore and strengthen who you are.
