Professional Counselor Associate
MA, LPC Associate
I am a multicultural therapist offering compassionate, EMDR, EFT, and mindfulness-based care to individuals and couples.
Provides free initial consultation
Provides telehealth services
Practicing Since: 2019
I support clients in cultivating self-worth, healing past experiences, exploring their values and purpose, and creating safe and meaningful relationships. You may notice feeling stressed, stuck, or drained, and together we will find clarity on how you can move forward.
Couples therapy is a space to explore where things got off track. Together we will bring awareness to triggers and identify the negative relational cycle unique to every couple. This awareness will help us understand and resolve negative patterns, process emotional responses, and create a positive shift in partners’ interpersonal interactions. This shift aims to move you and your partner toward a secure bond of trust and intimacy and deepen the quality of your communication and connection.
We can't change the past, but we can change its impact on us. Often past memories collide with our present experience causing emotional distress. Together we will identify and reprocess current and foundational memories and help build new positive, adaptive memory networks. This will bring relief and resolution in the present, and resilience and hope for the future.
Those who identify with ADHD are often highly creative with an abundance of ideas + big picture connections. They can also struggle with managing their time (arriving late, super early, or generally overscheduled), organizing daily life (meeting deadlines, staying on task, paying bills on time), and experiencing strong emotions (intense feelings that are hard to manage). I work with clients to regulate difficult emotions and offer effective time management and organizational techniques.
Feelings of anxiety such as a pervasive sense of unease, worry, or racing thoughts can be our bodies' SOS signal. It’s an invitation to explore what needs our attention. I will work with you holistically to identify the causes of your anxiety and the emotions you're experiencing as a result. I'll support you in regulating and managing your emotions with mindfulness and CBT techniques to help you feel more grounded.
