I offer individual therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma and identity. I see people in my practice that identify as "other". Whether attributed to their ethnic or cultural identity, sexuality, gender, disability, or a combination of these identities.
I work with couples in cross cultural relationships- whether this be race, ethnicity, class, family of origin, or community affiliation. I work from an attachment perspective, considering the different non dominant cultural values (I versus we, direct versus non direct communication, honoring of obligations to family versus self) and their effect on what is being shared within the couple dynamic and in the therapy room.
I also offer joint sessions with adult children and their parents, siblings, and other family dyads to explore issues of racial identity, connection, belonging, and communication.
Group Therapy: Mixed Race Identity Group

As someone looking to make an investment in your well being, knowing the cost is important. If you are considering starting therapy, it's important to keep in mind that there is a cost both for starting therapy, as well as a cost of NOT starting therapy. As you imagine what your life may look like a year from now- consider where you will be if things stay the same they are now, and what may be different if you decide to move towards a life where you experience more creativity, clarity, and connection. This involves risk as well as reward, and it's not an easy decision- I am happy to talk more with you about whether or not we'd be a good fit to work together. If not, I can offer some referrals for a clinician that may be a better fit.
