My drive to work in mental health comes from growing up in a low-income community with limited access to care. Everyone deserves quality mental health services, regardless of socioeconomic status. Inspired by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, I aim to help people meet their basic and psychological needs to reach self-fulfillment. I find joy in storytelling and walking alongside individuals as they make vital changes to achieve the lives they desire. My therapeutic approach encompasses empathy, authenticity, and a safe space for clients to confront/navigate uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. I encourage clients to challenge unhelpful thoughts while embracing their feelings in a non-judgmental way. My clients would describe me as personable, humorous, and open-minded. As cliché as it may sound, I meet clients where they are and strive to establish a therapeutic alliance where clients can shed the persona they may project to others, and unveil their true selves. I work with clients to unpack unhealthy thought patterns while learning and implementing healthy coping skills to increase their well-being. I deeply enjoy working with marginalized communities, specifically communities of color, LGBTQ+ communities, immigrant and refugee communities, low income communities, and women and gender minorities.

I am a foodie who loves to travel—I enjoy the exchange of culture that happens, whether with locals or fellow travelers. I am also a huge music lover. I believe that you can learn a lot about someone based on the music they listen to. The underlying theme of all my favorite things—food, travel, and music—is storytelling, which influenced my decision to become a mental health professional. We all have a unique story to tell, and I find that fascinating.
