My therapy style is client-centered and attachment-based, integrating therapeutic approaches that are individualized. I value cultural humility, understanding power imbalances in systems and relationships. I have certificate in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and experience working with pregnancy/postpartum and adoption/attachment issues.

The journey of healing is the bravest path to walk; with safety, dignity, & courage you’ll be empowered in this most sacred work. We’ll explore wounds that may impact your view of self & how you relate to others. We’ll collaborate to identify needs, set goals, & implement strategies that will lead to greater self-compassion, deeper connectedness and consciousness, and healthy relationships.
I look forward to working with you!
