    Who are dealing with issues related to culture that are impacting their mental health. I also specialize in working with people who are seeking therapy for the first time. I know this can be scary but I am here to help.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    Our office is quiet and discreet. We stagger appointment times so you rarely see others in the waiting room. Appointments are online and in person.
