Profile
“Being both a witness and a guide in another’s journey is truly an honor; I genuinely enjoy helping others gain insight into their present self and learn how to better navigate life’s challenges with strength, self-compassion, and resilience.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Like many other therapists, I have also had my own journey to growth and healing. Talk therapy was a corrective experience for me. It allowed me to gain awareness of the impact of my past experiences, helped me develop healthier relationships with my emotions, and empowered me to take action toward personal change. I have had the privilege to combine my own lived experience with educational and professional opportunities, which paved my way into becoming a psychotherapist.

What should someone know about working with you?
I bring a relational framework to treatment and intentionally join my clients on their journeys with curiosity, nonjudgment, and respect. I come with the awareness that I too influence the dynamic between us and I use our relationship as a therapeutic tool. I believe that the quality of our past and present relationships, including the therapeutic relationship, greatly impacts our emotional wellbeing. I find value in examining how family history, attachment style, and past life experiences impact the current problems. In addition, I tailor treatment to each individual client by incorporating other therapeutic styles, including mindfulness, narrative therapy, and behavioral modalities. My eclectic style is always accompanied by authenticity, warmth, and empathy.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in a weekly peer supervision group, regularly attend training, and stay informed of current mental health content through podcasts, books, and articles. I frequently attend seminars at psychoanalytic institutes and am currently in training to become a certified complex trauma treatment provider.
