As a mental health therapist, my goal is to help you find your inner strength and gain confidence to tackle challenges and struggles in your life. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and affirming environment where we will work collaboratively to start the process of healing. I am passionate about providing culturally sensitive care and helping people to recognize their strengths. I am devoted to working with people from marginalized racial/cultural groups around the trauma of living in a system of oppression.
My approach to treatment is integrative meaning that I will combine different therapeutic approaches and tools to address your unique needs. I also have a holistic approach in which we will explore the impact of your concerns on your emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.
I look forward to supporting you on your healing journey.

I have an expansive background of working with a variety of individuals from different racial, social, economic, and age groups. I have worked in various settings such as community mental health, supportive housing, nursing homes, outpatient substance abuse programs, homeless shelters, and private practice.
My career has afforded me the ability to hone my skills in helping people who are experiencing depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use concerns, trauma, grief, life transitions, family issues, and many other challenges. It has been an honor to serve those who are resilient despite so many barriers and challenges.
