LCSW Owner/Clinical Director

My holistic approach to healing addresses the whole person mind, body, heart, and spirit. I offer a safe space to grieve, feel, and heal. My therapeutic work incorporates various traditional indigenous wisdom, and eastern wellness teachings along with evidence based psychotherapy techniques such as CBT and EMDR. In addition, I bring a social justice framework into my healing practice addressing the historical trauma many have experienced due to the social, cultural, and political inequalities that to this day continue to negatively affect the mental and emotional wellness of families and communities.
