To those who feel invisible, marginalized, oppressed, and disregarded — I see you.
Living with mental health challenges can be debilitating in and of itself; compound this experience with the reality of being othered, and things may seem insurmountable. They are not. We can work through it!
My practice is dedicated to providing open and affirming services to people of color and those who may identify as LGBTQ+. My clinical social work training compels me to view individuals within their family systems and communities, and to explore and evaluate with my clients the ways in which those contexts impact their lives. It is my core belief that we are all doing the best we can with what we have, and I want you to have more. More love, more balance, self-compassion, confidence, and insight.
I work from a variety of therapeutic modalities to create an environment that will allow my clients to build courage, creativity, and express vulnerability in the pursuit of reclaiming power and agency. Person-in-context is my guiding mantra as I engage individuals, couples, and families on their mental health journey.
I hold a master of social work from Boston University with a certification in family therapy. I am also a certified trauma practitioner through the National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children.
I invite you to connect with me.
