Psychotherapist for LGBTQ
Individuals and Couples
I provide psychotherapy to individuals using a bi-cultural, person-centered, social-justice framework. I use an eclectic and integrative approach incorporating Mindfulness-Based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Strength-Based techniques. My goal is to offer a non-judgmental, compassionate, encouraging environment to assist you through whatever challenges you may be confronting. Together we will collaboratively explore tools and strategies that will help you feel better about yourself, have better relationships, and experience more joy.
