Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or conceivably connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable or challenging at best.
My goal is to work collaboratively with you to create a new empowering narrative for your life. Holding a safe space, along with my direct and curious questioning approach, will aid in providing more clarity, so that you will be able to move towards implementing positive change.
Teaching effective communication as well as assisting you in languaging difficult conversations is a passion and strength.
I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an LGBTQ+ Affirmative specialization. I am highly competent and sensitive at working with a diverse range of individuals, regardless of cultural background or where they may fall on the gender/sexuality spectrums: including intersectionality, Biracial/multiracial, and mixed couples/families. Kink/ Poly knowledgeable/friendly.
I offer both in person and online video therapy. For some individuals phone calls are preferred. All are options if you are a California Resident.
"My fullest concentration of energy is available to me only when I integrate all the parts of who I am, openly, allowing power from particular sources of my living to flow back and forth freely through all my different selves, without the restriction of externally imposed definition. Only then can I bring myself and my energies as a whole to the service of those struggles which I embrace as part of my living." Audre Lorde
