About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Very knowledgeable and helpful in uncovering unhealthy mental habits non-judgmentally and promoting self-compassion to resolve misalignment in life.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    That you are taking a very important step to improve your mental & physical health. I specialize in helping clients acquire mindfulness-based mental skills to gain a healthier perspective and enhance resilience to cope with challenges in life.

  • Together, we will:

    Psychotherapy is a synergistic process of unlearning what has not worked and learning new ways of being. Through this process, your personal narrative will gradually evolve and prompt you to start taking concrete steps toward self-actualization.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are struggling with stress-induced anxiety disorders, depression, and life transition. My treatment approach aims to promote individualized experiential learning, self-discovery, and exploration of new possibilities for your future self.

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

    I see clients remotely via Zoom and this is how I can meet exactly where you are, both physically and mentally while protecting your privacy.

  • More about me and my practice:

    My foray into counseling began as a volunteer sharing the knowledge of yoga & meditation. I was so inspired by the resilience of those in recovery that went back to school for psychology and clinical social work to pursue the career in psychotherapy.
