Biographical Info
The people who come to me are curious to get to know themselves in a deeper away. I work with people to help them live more authentically, embrace their true selves, set healthier boundaries in relationships, interrupt unhelpful patterns, loosen the grip of perfectionism, mindfully manage anxiety, and heal from trauma. Together, we can work toward both short-term and long-term change.

You may be an immigrant navigating the in-betweenness of a life betwixt two worlds. Or you are a queer person finding your place in a heteronormative world. If you are a queer immigrant, you may feel like an outsider on multiple fronts. Processing experiences related to your identity is an important part of figuring out who are and who you want to become.

I strive to attend to how systems of power (with respect to race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, among others) shape identities and relationships and how this may emerge between us. Call me today to schedule a free phone consultation. I want to get to know you and see if we may be a fit.
