My Ideal Client

Do you find yourself emotionally charged or activated but not know why you have such a "big" reaction to things? Or does it feel the opposite for you, where you feel numb and indifferent about the world? I enjoy working with clients to help peel back layers of narratives created by trauma, relational wounds, or just daily stressors. I honor and respect all the ways our minds and emotions try to protect us, but also acknowledge that these "protections" may be the very thing that is causing harm.

Our Background and Approach

I take a relational approach to therapy and strive to build unique and authentic relationships with my clients. My areas of focus with my adult-aged clients are: trauma, anxiety, life adjustments, inner child work, and navigating relational and cultural stressors. I identify as a POC and enjoy offering multicultural therapy services to other individuals in the community. I have the lived experience of being an immigrant and the stressors that come with navigating identity, values, and grief related to this process. I am also a certified trauma-conscious yoga instructor, certified complex trauma therapist and offer EMDR to clients who are interested.

Techniques I Use


  • Relational  External link

    Neither our happiness nor our pain happens in isolation. We are relational beings and I examine the ways in which these connections can be a great source or joy and hurt. I work to examine the narratives that are created from our relationships with our gender, sexuality, family of origin, intimate relationships and more.

Issues I Treat


  • PTSD External link

    I help clients finding grounding and safety while helping address unprocessed memories and experiences. I offer EMDR, Trauma Conscious Yoga and other methods of grounding and processing.
