All people in all bodies are deserving of respect and care. Healing is for everyone, and it can be all the more powerful when rooted in our unique cultural experiences. My aim as a therapist is to meet you in collaboration towards change that is embodied, and includes all dimensions of who you are. In my work, I incorporate somatic practices that call upon the body’s wisdom, as well as various strategies including DBT and mindfulness to expand our capacity to navigate and withstand life’s challenges. Humor is essential in my life and the same is true in my therapy practice. If you are interested in working together or feel curious to learn more, please reach out and we can set up a free 15-minute consultation.
