My heartfelt passion lies in supporting various marginalized populations, including BIPOC, 1st & 2nd generation immigrants, LGBTQIA+ people, and sexual abuse survivors.
With a profound commitment to working with underserved communities, I am a trauma-informed, multiculturally competent clinician. I incorporate mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to address a range of clinical issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, emotional regulation, and family and peer conflict.
My primary goal is to foster a safe and trusting environment for each client, providing a warm and non-judgmental space to navigate challenges and discover healing. I mix holistic and evidenced-based approaches, enabling a personalized, connected experience that supports self-expression, growth and relief.
