As a BIPoC, LGBTQIA2S+, cis-womxn, the core of my work is non-judgmental and culture-centered, anti-racist and anti-oppression, and powered by social justice and inclusivity. When working together, you can expect me to be authentically and energetically attuned, non-judgmental, curious, and compassionate. Showing up authentically to sessions is a must for me as I incorporate a judgment free trauma-informed lens, curiosity, directness, humor, and culture with an invitation to bring your authentic self too. The therapeutic environment is authentic, non-judgmental, collaborative, interactive, empathetic, and filled with compassion and support.

Non-traditional/Complimentary explorations and modalities...

  • existential exploration
  • transpersonal
  • nature based
  • energy connecting/healing
  • divination (tarot, oracle, etc.)
  • intuition work

Do you feel unheard or alone? Judged or tired of the same issues with the family/friends? Frustrated with cultural/societal factors that nobody seems to understand? Wonder where you belong? Or who you are? Do these issues bring you stress? Sleepless nights? Sadness throughout the day? Urges to avoid gatherings? Or anxiety about family contact?

I specialize in supporting the healing journey of BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA2S+ communities. I enjoy working with; questioning, sexuality, acculturation stress, land back/indigenous sovereignty, racial trauma, reclaiming/redefining identity, first-generation stressors, transgender stress, life transitions, intergenerational trauma, non-conforming struggles, anxiety, intersectionality, situational depression, self-esteem, intergenerational cultural dissonance, intimate relationships (monogamous and consensual non-monogamous), self-advocacy and boundaries, alternative life styles, activists, health care professionals, interpersonal issues,  and those seeking education on any of the mentioned specializations in a corrective, healing, environment. 

We build upon current strengths, identify blind spots, and overcome unhealthy habits. Through an unbiased and nonjudgmental lens I support you in your learning and growing, as we unpack past hurts and patterns of self-sabotage. I provide a safe space to facilitate and nurture a healing environment.


If you value gentle but direct feedback, wholehearted encouragement, and compassionate challenges from an honest place, reach out today and let's schedule a 15-minute phone consultation.
