We might be a good fit if you are Asian, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, first generation, queer, or gender expansive. I help people find relief from the pain and stress of grief, anxiety, depression, parenting, intergenerational trauma, chronic illness, and systemic oppression. If you are the parent of a child ages 3-10 adjusting to loss and change in the family, struggling in school, experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic illness, disability, and racial stress-- I'm here for you.
Play is the language of childhood. Young children respond to stress and change differently than adults do, and they communicate differently, too. As a play therapist, I provide a safe environment where children can express their emotions, learn coping skills, develop self-control, and build self-esteem in a way that comes naturally to them. I love working with children, and would be honored to help support your family!
Wellness naturally arises when we experience empathy, acceptance, curiosity, and hope in relationships. I aim to bring these qualities to our therapeutic relationship, and support you in creating this kind of relationship with the important people in your life. I believe each client has the capacity for healing and self-actualization. I bring my full authentic self into my relationship with clients so they may feel understood, valued, and empowered to move towards growth.
In the playroom, children can express their emotions, develop coping skills, improve social skills, strengthen their family relationships, and improve behavior in a way that comes naturally to them. I provide in-person play therapy for children ages 3-10 adjusting to loss and change in the family, struggling in school, experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic illness, disability, and racial stress.
If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces and people where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.
Anxiety, Racial Identity, Women's Issues
What would it feel like to visit a healing space every week and be supported by other women and femmes of color? How would your life and relationships be better if you could share your inner experiences with folks who understand you? Group therapy is an effective and affordable way to cultivate resilience, improve your relationship skills, find your voice, and heal from depression, anxiety, and trauma in community with others. Therapy groups meet weekly for 10 weeks beginning Spring 2021.
