"The world we live in is a house on fire and the people we love are burning."
- Sandra Cisneros
We are in a crisis that many of us have never experienced before. We are living through a pandemic, wars, civil unrest and violence on our streets. We are also being forced to navigate systems that are designed to keep us down while doing it.It’s ok to not be ok. Working with me means creating space that challenges the status quo and business as usual model of psychotherapy, counseling and wellness. I challenge the idea that a person in crisis is the problem and we look to the factors that are contributing to their suffering. I find ways to EMPOWER and TRANSFORM my clients to navigate the world with joy, meaning, purpose and a fierceness born of deep love. I serve people who have been forced to the margins of our society and center the most vulnerable among us.
