About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    someone who views you more than just the sum of your symptoms and strives to understand your entire life story, unique personality, and strengths.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    It is equal parts warm, relatable, science-backed, and practical. As a holistic therapist, I firmly believe mental health is intimately interlinked with physical, social, and spiritual health, and effective therapy addresses all these dimensions.

  • Together, we will:

    Learn to understand and regulate difficult emotions, recognize and replace negative self-talk and beliefs that keep you down or anxious, clarify your life's direction, and build interpersonal skills for healthy and fulfilling relationships.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    on the surface, have it all together but on the inside, feel drained and unfulfilled, maybe even dreading their days or constantly worrying. They struggle with unhealed traumas and often feel "not good enough" despite many strengths & talents.

  • I became a therapist because:

    It is my sincere belief that everyone has the capacity to heal, feel whole, and reach their full potential. It brings me joy to support this process.

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

    You'll avoid long commutes and access quality care from the comfort of your home. Ask me about my sliding scale & out-of-network insurance coverage.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Having lived and worked across different cultures, I make it a point to create a judgment-free and welcoming space for you to show up exactly as you are. I’m an anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ affirming and sex-positive therapist.
