If you are struggling, remember that you are not alone, there is support available, and therapy can be a helpful tool. Finding a therapist that you can connect with is important, and can be one of the first steps to making positive change.

In my practice I use a collaborative and transparent process. Together we will examine how culture, past events, family influences, and other social constructions impact your life. We will identify strengths, set goals, and focus on your preferred outcome, instead of on the problem. The time spent in therapy is broken down into manageable steps by building more understanding around emotions, attuning to thoughts, investigating cultural messages, and incorporating mindfulness so that you can maintain change, expand your personal narrative, and continue to open to possibilities.
