Life is complex for everyone. Whether you are a toddler trying to communicate your needs or a family who is stuck in destructive interaction, wouldn't it be great if there was a manual that could give us all the answers? Life experience has taught me that having compassionate support in therapy was the key in finding my "life manual". I strive to give back what has been given to me. I am also passionate to work with new immigrants with acculturation stress.

I specialize in providing supports for adults, children, and teens of color who strive to take back their emotional and mental freedom. With support, one can build resilience after experiencing tremendous grief and trauma.

My goal as a therapist is to increase individuals' understanding of their unique experiences in this world, the messages they have received from those around them, and how both of these can impact present life and relationships. I particularly enjoy working with those who exist in the in-between or grey areas of identity and experience; those who may feel unseen or unheard in their everyday lives. My therapy practice is trauma-informed, Health at Every Size oriented, and queer-affirming.

**Currently not accepting new clients** I help people who struggle with being their full, authentic selves navigate systems and relationships that want them to be anything except who they are. Clients first come to me worried that if they make the changes they want to in their lives, people will think they’re selfish. They might find themselves in work environments they hate, relationships they feel unfulfilled by, and friendships that seem unbalanced. Breaking free from past patterns might feel impossible- but given the right support, they find a confident way forward.
