I understand the unique healing path necessary to overcome racial, gender, and sexuality-based oppression because of my own personal and professional experiences navigating these challenges, as well as my own work in therapy. I’m actively involved in community-based work related to many socio-political and social justice issues that our society has historically and continues to grapple with. I’ve benefited tremendously over the years from my mentors and colleagues, as well as from my own personal challenges. I know how rewarding it is to invest in your personal growth through therapy. Therapy is a unique place where you can be nurtured and challenged. I look forward to getting to know you and find the right balance to explore what’s possible in your life right now. In addition to training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), an integrative and effective approach for individuals who have been impacted by complex and/or persistent trauma. I can help you explore and heal from trauma, depression, anxiety, feeling stuck, and other forms of relational and interpersonal distress. Working with me in therapy will provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space to explore, understand, and have more compassion for the multiple layers within your personality. With couples, I provide clear structure to our sessions and have a very active presence to help partners change destructive patterns, have productive conversations and resolve conflict. I’ll offer clear steps to help you create the kind of relationship you desire with yourself and others in your life.
