Everyone feels stuck at some point as they are navigating through life and our relationships. Whether you are facing something that feels out of your control, you are feeling dissatisfied with your relationships, or you just find yourself needing some additional support, asking for help can feel daunting. We can easily feel lost in our problems and feel like things are out of our control, but this is where seeking therapy can offer great relief.
Therapy can offer a completely new perspective on the challenges we face daily. As a culturally-competent couple and family therapist, I aim to meet people where they are at to create a safe, nurturing, non-judgmental, and empathetic space. My training as a systemic, relational thinker allows me to recognize how outside systems such as families, relationships, friendships, communities, culture, and larger institutions impact our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I am a strong believer that everyone deserves to feel heard and understood and am passionate about collaborating with individuals to rediscover their strengths, learn skills to better their relationships and increase their self-awareness.
Additionally, I have experience working with adolescents experiencing substance abuse as well as first-generation children of immigrant and refugee families to learn emotional regulation, relationship management, self-awareness, and communication. I am also particularly passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ individuals. I believe that the therapy experience is unique for every person: what works for one may not work for another. My goal as a couple and family therapist is to support and empower clients to see the patterns affecting their lives as well as use their strengths and the skills they learn to navigate life’s challenges in a way that best serves them.
