At our first visit, we’ll discuss your present and past in great detail, including the concerns that prompted you to seek treatment. Based on our conversation, I will offer initial impressions and recommendations for our work together. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of the ways your mind works, cultivate better coping strategies, recognize areas in your life where you can begin to take back control from habitual behaviors, and start you on a path to better health and functioning, all while exploring the deeper, less conscious influences on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You’ll also receive homework, morning practices, and tools to use between sessions to deepen the work and to appease the parts of us that want the process to feel tangible and productive.

“People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. ... I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” – Joseph Campbell

Have you ever had the thought: “If only I could just stop [Fill in the blank] my life would be so much better”? Well, I want to tell you that you are right! Whether you struggle with chronic anxiety or depression, drinking, overeating, toxic relationships, negative thought patterns, low self-esteem, addictive/compulsive behaviors, or any number of self-destructive mental habits that keep you from becoming the fullest expression of your true self you already have an intuitive knowing that this is not who you really are. I am here to help people uncover, discover, and discard the mental habits that keep them feeling ‘stuck.’ I work with people using the tools of traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy; neurobiology, and behavioral approaches, which I merge with (historically) Eastern practices of meditation and mindfulness that are scientifically proven to create long term cognitive and behavioral change. It has been my experience that once we are able to put down behaviors and thought patterns that no longer serve us, we become free to find out who we truly are and live life to the fullest and fully experience the rapture of being alive.

I’ve wanted to be a therapist since high school. I wanted to be what I didn’t have as a multiracial, only child, growing up with parents who abused drugs and alcohol on a daily basis and would often get violent with each other. I have always wanted to be someone who support others in their journey and struggles with racial and sexual identity and who they are without the labels, which would have been priceless for me during my journey and struggles with the same.

My clients have expressed that their sessions with me leave them feeling cathartic and as feeling a real human connection with someone who cares about their wellbeing. I take a genuine interest in every individual that I work with as human beings and not just as a “client”. I work very hard to ensure that therapy feels authentic with a natural and productive flow.
