    My Mission

    My mission is to help individuals heal and improve their quality of life. Our time together will be spent focusing on you, your needs, and your desires, and providing emotional support. 

    I provide trauma-informed care and aim to de-colonize therapy interventions so that they serve a broad range of diverse people.

    Are you ready to take the first step?

    My Values


    What we discuss in your therapy sessions stays between us. 


    To de-colonize therapy, there are times when I might recommend or suggest treatment or activities that are specific to your creative interests.


    Empathy is being able to emotionally understand another person's perspective. Compassion is having an open heart and an open mind. In our sessions together, you will experience both empathy and compassion. 


    This is a non-judgmental, affirming therapy practice. You are unconditionally accepted and celebrated just as you are. This is a safe place. You are safe here.
