Description

I know finding the right therapist can be really hard! I am here to support diverse individuals in whatever life stage they are at. I foster a space where clients can share their experiences openly without fear or judgment. I focus on depression and anxiety but understand that for each person this looks different and thus remain curious and open to understanding each of my client's experiences. I always maintain a culturally sensitive and trauma-informed lens in my practice. I encourage introspection, self-compassion and hope that through our sessions clients can eventually support themselves.
