Hi there!

I'm an LGBTQ+ affirmative and identified psychotherapist based out of West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. I would love the opportunity to join you and assist you on your journey towards positive mental health and self-discovery. At times life can become overwhelming, messy and exhausting, but I am here to help guide you through any and all obstacles you may face along the way. The client population I work with consists primarily of the LGBTQ+ community, individuals and teens struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression as well as other transitional life struggles. As we develop our therapeutic relationship with one another, we will work collaboratively to tackle all therapeutic goals while also implementing the following:

  • Purposeful and compassionate self-care

  • Empowering talk therapy

  • Applied mindfulness techniques

  • Engagement and connection through means of active listening

  • Continuous supportive conversation

  • A sense of humor (when applicable of course)

  • Safe and judgement-free environment

  • Assistance on your journey to self-discovery, self-healing and most of all self-love
