Description

I am a trauma-informed psychotherapist with over 10 years of experience working with diverse clients in individual and couple settings. I practice from a humanistic, strengths-based, person-centered model as well as a psychodynamic perspective. My approach is holistic, anti-oppressive, authentic, nurturing, and eclectic. With a multicultural perspective, I honor the importance of the therapeutic alliance in creating change in clients' lives, and I invite you to (re)discover your strengths, hopes, and dreams, and your true identity/self.
