To say Life can be challenging is an understatement. I believe there are lessons, blessings, and opportunities to grow through it all.

My personal & professional experience has taught me that there\\\'s a wisdom inside of each of us leading us through the maze of life. My role is to support that wisdom\\\'s ability to shine forth.

Whatever life challenge brings you to therapy we can work with. Through it all, our work holds space for who you\\\'re becoming.

I tend to do things unconventionally--meaning I lead with my humanness rather than my degrees & training. I don\\\'t believe papers that institutions gave me can promise that more than building true and authentic therapeutic relationship. I\\\'m curious if us working together can support your journey towards wholeness. And,Suffice it to say, I\\\'m one of many therapists seeking to decolonize this healing work.

If you\\\'ve made it this far and feel a resonance, how exciting!

If you\\\'re interested in working together in a new season, fill out an inquiry form on my website. From there, we\\\'ll schedule a 20min complimentary phone call & I\\\'ll let you know which service I offer that I recommend for you based on our conversation.

Currently, I\\\'m accepting clients to my waitlist & you\\\'ll be one of the first to know when times open up. I\\\'ll have new times available in Summer 2024.
