Population Focus

I am a queer, mixed-race, cisgender woman providing couples and individual therapy. Specializing in LGBTQ+ issues, mood and personality disorders, relationship dynamics, attachment, multiracial identity, and interpersonal conflict, I believe in adapting my approach to meet each client’s unique needs. My passion for working with couples stems from valuing secure attachment and promoting collaborative, safe, and equitable environments for partners to deepen their understanding of one another.

I work from a relational-cultural, antiracist, and social justice perspective, aiming to understand each person within the larger systems they exist in. My top priority is building authentic and meaningful relationships with my clients, fostering a safe space for them to explore and process their identities and experiences.
