A little bit about working together

Offering a wide range of care and services to support you through all of life’s complexity.  I look forward to supporting you to discover the tools and insights to achieve your goals on your terms.  Talking to a therapist can make things be clearer and even help you find hope again.  Your goals are my goals. I will work with you to find achievable goals specific to you. 

I have supported many people who have experienced trauma, depression, perfectionism, and difficulty in relationships. With my support these people were able to heal.  They were able to reclaim themselves.  The frequency of sleepless nights, feelings of worthlessness, and worry became greatly reduced.  Their self-image, communication skills, and ability to embrace calm improved.  I would be happy and honored to collaborate with you during your recovery.

I am available to meet with individuals in San Jose, and remote therapy for those who live in California.  My practice is affirming of people of color and LGBTQ+ communities.
