A feminist-multicultural perspective is the foundation for my work with all clients.

 

I have experience with and a passion for working with LGBTQIA+ individuals. I see a calling as a cis person to ensure that I am providing affirming care and creating a space in therapy where trans and non-binary individuals can feel safe and seen. In addition to general support and advocacy through therapy, I am able to provide letters of support for gender-affirming care. I also have training in DBT.

 

It’s so dark right now, I can’t see any light around me. That’s because the light is coming from you. You can’t see it but everyone else can.”- Lang Leav

My Mission:
To honor you as your own expert on your life and your needs, and as we affirm your unique identities. Additionally, as an integrative psychotherapist, I strive to emphasize your individual strengths and work within your unique context.

I practice unconditional acceptance as I help you develop insight into your experiences and encourage you to embrace your power in order to make positive changes.
My Journey:
I made a home for myself in Dallas, after moving to earn my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University. Previously, I earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Eastern Michigan University and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Political Science.

While pursuing my undergraduate degree, I developed a greater understanding of the systems of inequity that keep individuals from accessing mental health care. I decided to pursue a career in psychology to aid in reducing mental health stigma, as well as to help others find self-empowerment, authenticity, and meaning in life.
