Practice Information
The truth of what is essential to know, you are whole just as you are, and you do not need to be,fixed. You may have been through unforgettable experiences such as Systematic oppression, racism, homophobia that created the belief you are not good enough or that you are less then enough. All of these untruthful messages get internalize and often become the story of your inner critic. This builds an even stronger falsehood. What is wrong with me? This health crisis can stir up past past trauma or create new shock waves of uncertainty. Therapy will expand your capacity to cope and ignite your sense of hope. Hope has the power to build resilience and support mental health even in difficult times.

I am now doing exclusive tele health session. I use a HIPPA compliant platform it offers a secure client portal.
