As a counselor, I work from a social justice-based and trauma-informed lens. I believe we all have parts of our identities that influence the ways we move through the world and process experiences. As such, I find it imperative that part of therapy is centered on exploring and affirming all salient parts of your identity. 

 

I will support you in sharing your story, identifying your values, experiencing your emotions, and building skills to work towards your goals. I utilize a person-centered approach, which means I view you as the expert on your story. 

 

And one more thing—tears are always welcome in my office with no apology needed! I am honored and excited to come alongside you on your journey to growth.

Trained in:

Somatic Experiencing (SE)

My Mission:
To honor your story while empowering you to build the insight and self-compassion needed to heal and grow. The strength of the therapist-client relationship is a vital part of the therapy process. I strive to create an atmosphere that is welcoming, warm and flowing with compassion.

I recognize that engaging in therapy takes tremendous vulnerability, courage, and strength, and I am committed to moving at the pace that honors the work you are doing.
My Journey:
Growing up in an immigrant family and moving often, I quickly learned how to form relationships with those whose paths I crossed. Hearing the stories of others became a joy for me.

While studying Elementary Education and Psychology at Vanderbilt University, my passion for hearing and honoring the stories of others grew and led me to obtain my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University.

After that adventure, I moved to Dallas, began my career as a therapist and became a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I love spending time with friends, playing and watching tennis, and exploring the Nashville restaurant scene. I also recently adopted a rescue pup, Sydney.
