About Me

I am a relational psychotherapist, which means that I believe relationships (with family, friends, coworkers, higher powers, our relationship with our self, etc.) often play a role in our suffering and, yet, also play a crucial role in our healing. Relatedly, the relationship between the therapist and client is of utmost importance and requires trust and authenticity for both parties involved.  I use a variety of individualized, eclectic approaches to help each person meet their goals and needs. My therapeutic style is warm, direct, empowering, and collaborative.

I am a highly skilled Licensed Clinical Psychologist with generalist training with adult populations. I have specialty training and experience in multicultural psychology. This means that I often work with individuals who have felt “othered” in some way and/or hold identities that have been historically marginalized (women, individuals who are gender non-conforming/don’t identify within gender binaries, racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+, religious/spiritual minorities, etc.). Below, are areas where I have specialty training:

  • Young Adults (18-40)
  • Women’s Issues
  • Trauma and Recovery (childhood abuse and trauma, sexual assault, domestic violence, race and gender-based violence, spiritual abuse, etc.)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Identity Concerns
  • Relationship Problems
  • Life Transitions/Changes
  • Sexual Issues
