 Connecting with Yourself. Connecting with Others.

I’m glad you made it here.


Perhaps you are visiting this site because you are experiencing some roadblocks preventing you from getting where you want to be in life.  There are many sources of pain as we traverse this journey called life: relationship problems, grief and loss, work-related stress, life transitions, and tragedies. For communities of color, there are additional stressors arising from institutional and structural oppression.  

Our responses to pain may come in the form of depression, anxiety, trauma, and/or addictions of various sorts. While many of us already possess innate skills to cope with our problems, there are times when we may need some additional, professional help to get ourselves moving along again. 

As a licensed therapist, I will listen deeply to your needs and utilize cutting-edge, science-based contextual therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) to help you cope with your challenges. Our time together would be tailored to your particular needs based on your family dynamics, cultural background, and personal values while not forgetting that we are a part of a larger social and structural system that impacts your unique journey.
