Description

I value an authentic and non-judgmental connection with my clients that is built on empathy, respect and compassion. Therapy is a space to get in touch with your true feelings and self. It can also provide you with an opportunity to learn new skills, coping strategies and perspectives that will lead you towards your most authentic self, no matter where you are. Maybe we feel like we have to hide or ignore parts of ourselves to "fit in". But these parts don't need to be hidden, but rather faced with compassion. I hope to discover these parts with my clients with openness and curiosity.

Mosaic Healing Collective

Summary

Trauma-informed, inclusive and culturally responsive care focused on treating depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD symptoms, family or relationship conflict, low self-esteem, employment and career transitions, grief and loss, and navigating cultural identities and values. We aim to establish safety, transparency, collaboration, empowerment, choice, and acknowledge gender & culture during all stages of the therapy process. Getting unstuck requires understanding "what happened to you?" instead of the traditional medical model of "what's wrong with you?".
