Sometimes relationships, work, money, social lives, and really life in general, can leave you feeling overwhelmed and heading towards burn out.

I identify as a queer person of color and hope to best serve those communities who feel underrepresented in professional fields. Common areas that I work with are trauma, gender identity and expression, gender issues, career related difficulties, and mood/anxiety disorders. I work heavily with the linguistic ways we approach "problems" and through a narrative approach we would work on creating the future you want to see.

My work as a counselor draws from values of justice and creativity. I support clients in moving toward change and growth, at a pace they choose. I often hear from people who are concerned that their experiences aren’t bad enough for counseling or that talking about hard experiences would be like opening an old wound. Anyone can benefit from meeting with a counselor, and everyone deserves the type of healing that feels right for them. I want you to get the counseling experience you are looking for (even if you aren’t sure what that is yet). I am happy to communicate by phone or email to answer any questions you might have.

I use an interactive style when doing therapy, guiding and empowering clients to trust the wisdom received from the unconscious, and to use that wisdom with awareness. In this way, we facilitate the individuation process together. Individuation continually returns the individual identity--the Ego--to a healthy intimacy with the Self, the core of our being. By companioning you as you deepen your relationship to the Self and the archetypes, our therapeutic alliance can help sustain a vibrant, healthy and genuine presence in life.

We all experience a wide variety of feelings during our life time. Uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, depression, resentment, guilt and shame are often difficult to own and process. When these feelings are not well processed, they disrupt our sense of self-esteem and self-worth. I became an LCSW in 2013 to pursue my passion to help people regain their sense of self-esteem and self-worth. In my practice, I often use therapeutic techniques such as active/empathic listening, reflection, reality testing and boundary setting. These techniques help my clients feel better about themselves and live fuller, more meaningful lives.

Difficulties, problems and failures are normal aspects of life and sometimes we don’t understand or relate to them very well. We formulate ideas, notions and perceptions about how life should, but inevitably life does get rocky from time to time. Counseling can offer the additional insight for self-discovery and newfound understanding. Eventually through a deeper understanding of our patterns and storylines more freedom and liberation is possible for finding our best self.
