In therapy, I integrate principles of healthy attachment in relationships and a strengths-based approach, empowering you to shift perspectives and tap into your innate resilience. As a bilingual/bicultural therapist, I understand the intricacies of navigating intersecting identities and the importance of reevaluating and honoring the values that shape us while embracing opportunities for growth and self-discovery.

I am deeply committed to supporting individuals in their ongoing journey of self-exploration and identity development, particularly as these intersect with significant life milestones such as reproductive experiences. Continuously reassessing what aligns with our current chapter and reconciling outdated beliefs are integral aspects of this process. Our roles and identities evolve over time, and I provide a safe space to explore these themes and integrate them into your personal narrative.

With a Master of Science in Social Work, I am acutely aware of how external factors and a lack of social support can profoundly impact our well-being. It's important to understand that the challenges you face are not yours alone to bear; seeking guidance from a mental health professional is a courageous step towards navigating life's changes.

Outside of my professional role, I am a devoted parent to two young boys and find rejuvenation through running. As both a sole parent and therapist, I recognize the significance of authentic connection and creating an environment where you can embrace all facets of yourself, including those still evolving. My own journey of reconciling various aspects of life has deeply shaped my therapeutic approach, emphasizing the importance of balance and self-acceptance.

Through my experience in the field of therapy, I have developed a profound appreciation for the transformative power of recognizing and amplifying the strengths within each individual. This core belief underpins my therapeutic approach, driving me to empower my clients as they navigate their paths toward growth and healing.

In moments when the weight of the world feels overwhelming and clarity seems elusive, I offer a space where you can gain an external perspective and uncover blind spots that may have eluded you. Sometimes, simply having someone acknowledge the difficulty of your situation can be incredibly validating. My goal is for you to feel fully supported as you identify your needs and forge your path forward.
