My life experiences as someone at the intersection of various identities is what drew me to psychology, and to NYC. These experiences — in addition to my training — inform the work I do, especially with clients who think of themselves as “different” from the rest. A Texan-turned-New Yorker, drawn to the city by affection for people-watching, music, architecture, and multiculturalism, I cite some of literature and film’s most complex characters as inspiration for becoming a psychotherapist, and enjoy interacting and helping clients get to deeper places of self-awareness.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), I provide services to people from diverse backgrounds. My specialties include treating individuals with complex identities from multicultural backgrounds, and I have extensive experience helping people who identify as LGBTQIA++, and individuals dealing with phase of life issues, trauma, depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and anxiety.

I value learning, and actively work at deepening my expertise through ongoing education. I am working towards certification in peripheral biofeedback, and I hope to incorporate biofeedback and mindfulness practices to help sufferers of anxiety, panic attacks, and PTSD in the near future. I have completed training with numerous organizations and institutions, including Columbia University, the American Counseling Association, New York University, and the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.
