Hello and welcome to my page! I am passionate about healing work that is rooted in anti-oppression and collective liberation. It brings me joy to help people access more freedom, peace, and connection in their lives. My approach to therapy is collaborative and one in which we will honor who you are as a person. I specialize in working with people of color (including mixed folks) and women/AFAB/non-binary folks. Note: In addition to talk therapy, I offer Brainspotting, a brain-body therapy developed out of EMDR which helps to release trauma and symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I find that when we struggle with our emotions or have difficulty accessing a positive sense of self, it is because we didn’t get or aren’t getting something that we need. We may also have experienced events that diminished our happiness and our sense of peace. Ironically, we can come to blame ourselves for the sadness, anxiousness, or anger that we feel.

My hope is to support you in moving from “what’s wrong with me” towards “what has happened to me” and “what has been missing from my life,” and then to reclaim the parts of yourself that you have had to push away or hide. In turn, my aim is to honor your vulnerability with my full presence and with the care that I hold for each person I work with.
