I believe skillful awareness leads to lasting change and empowerment. I value the power of relating that helps us identify affirming narratives of ourselves and reinforce our will to be happy. I work with adolescents, adults, couples, and families seeking support and methods to identify balance and wellbeing. As a trauma and mindfulness therapist, I support families in building skills for healthy relating. When we understand each other’s needs and culture we connect better without much effort. Brave conversations with each other lead to collaborations and empathy about life struggles. We can find healthy solutions. 

 

I believe all humans have strengths, and room to grow. Therapy increases our capacity to thrive. I partner with parents, youth, adults, and families to uncover the cause of distress. By looking at our patterns, our choices, our thoughts, and behaviors, we can uncover strategies that better produce joy and healthy relating. I am a collaborator and I endeavor to model healthy collaboration. If you struggle with defiant behaviors, impulsivity, anger, boundaries, or communication, I can help.  

 

I deeply value community resilience stories. I know firsthand the benefits of incorporating skillful awareness into our daily lives. I am deeply committed to LGBTQIA2S community, nonbinary folx, and communities of color.  I choose to work with growURpotential which centers on healing justice and restorative care for our community.
