how i can help you

My goal is to help you cultivate and uncover your strengths for a more meaningful and gratifying life. I will hold space for you by honoring and validating the hardships and challenges you are facing. I work from a holistic perspective, understanding that mind, body, soul and community significantly impact functioning.

I’m committed to creating a warm, authentic and trusting therapeutic relationship in order to build a strong base of connection. I will draw on your strengths and resources while helping you and challenging you to develop a deeper understanding of your internal and external thoughts and behaviors. Using an integrative and collaborative approach, I will pull from trauma-informed, client-centered, multicultural and mindfulness theories to meet your needs.

It’s an honor to witness individuals in their therapeutic journeys. Art can be a powerful vessel to hold and process such vulnerable and honest material. Together we will work to transform distress into meaning, connection, awareness and hope.
