Great to meet you!

Whether therapy is a new step for you or a path you stepped off from and are returning to. Therapy is an opportunity to expand: self-awareness, skills, healing and live a more authentic life. Our work will be informed by the expert in the room: you. Anxiety, depression, stress and isolation are at an all-time high. Ingrained, unproductive thoughts and behaviors, old patterns, new fears may have caused disruptions in your life. I commend you for taking this step for yourself.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Together we will create a space that is welcoming, warm and enriched by your lived experience and are heard. My style is interactive, warm, practical and non-judgmental with a bit of humor. As a BIPOC, first generation American I can relate and identify with the challenges and exhaustion that every-day life can take on you just for existing as your authentic self.

What you can expect from our first session

Therapy is a journey. I invite you to be open to the possibilies within this journey. The possibility of positive change. The possibility of joy, peace, clarity, and understanding. I am excited for you! Contact me for a complementary 15 minute consultation. Emailing with good dates and times to speak is best way to reach me. Thru therapy you will not be doing it alone.
