Everyone deserves to feel at home in their body. I work using an intersectional feminist perspective with a focus on trauma, gender, sexuality and wellness and specialize in working with LGBTQIA+, TGNC/NB and queer identified communities. Working with a therapist as we strive towards our goals of healing can be an act of liberation and a vital part of envisioning a just future for ourselves and the world we live in. The mind and body are impacted when you experience stress and trauma and my approach is to address both using somatic techniques, guided visualization, and relational therapy techniques.

My work focuses on trauma, life transitions, feeling stuck, immigration experiences, and navigating neurodivergence. I create a supportive environment and utilize my training in trauma-focused, mindfulness-based, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR techniques to help my clients generate insight, be self reflective and create change.

 

I am a first generation immigrant clinician with a decade of experience in both clinical and community based practice. My experience has included working at Safe Horizon Counseling Center, using evidence based treatment modalities to address the impact of trauma, The Anti-Violence Project, where I focused on working with survivors of intimate partner violence, hate violence, and sexual violence, and Ackerman Institute's Gender & Family Project. I utilize anti-racist/anti-oppressive frameworks in my collaborative work with clients and I believe that deeply rooted within each of us are the tools and knowledge for our own growth and healing.
