Meet our counselors:
I approach counseling using a Time Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy approach, an empirically supported interpersonal framework that highly emphasizes the unique personal dynamics and cultural experiences that a client brings into the room.
Together we will work to create a collaborative, safe, and empowering environment that will serve as the foundation to achieving your therapeutic goals. I believe in holistic approaches to healing, in which I adhere to the philosophy that physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health are all intertwined. I am committed to social justice and ensuring equal access to resources.
My areas of professional interest include ethics in interrogation, social class, and historical trauma.
As a therapist, I work collaboratively with clients to create an egalitarian, supportive, emphatic, and safe therapeutic environment that is focused on empowerment. I also recognize the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor working with clients, and admire the bravery and vulnerability that they bring to therapy. I identify as an integrative therapist, bringing together elements of an acceptance and commitment therapy model and interpersonal approaches.
My clinical interests primarily include identity crisis, trauma, loss, discrimination, financial difficulties, cultural adjustment, and impact of immigration. I am open to and interested working with a clients from diverse backgrounds in appreciation for the variety of identities and experiences that impact them.

As a therapist I enjoy providing a safe, accepting, and supportive space for my clients, helping them not just to navigate life’s challenges but also to connect with the things that provide them with meaning and vitality. In my approach to therapy I aim to meet my client’s individual needs, but typically use an approach founded on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and interpersonal processes. My clinical interests are in the areas of grief and loss, mood and anxiety disorders and post-traumatic growth. I also enjoy exploring people’s cultural backgrounds and perspectives.
