My clients are creative, driven, and thoughtful individuals who yearn for connection, understanding, and growth. Clients enter therapy expressing feelings of anxiety, sadness, or isolation despite markers of success in multiple areas of their life. With an inherent understanding of their own capacity for expansion, clients seek relief from doubt, fear, and moments of overwhelm. In pursuit of forward-motion in their personal and professional lives, clients learn how to tap into their personal wisdom for inspiration and guidance. They are encouraged to attend to their soul's compass as they construct a practical, sustainable framework for living, loving, and creating.
I take a special interest in supporting creatives, couples, and families who struggle to balance nontraditional work schedules with the demands of modern day partnering and parenting. Thriving in LA's "gig economy" requires a responsiveness and resilience that often leaves partners depleted at the end of the day. Clients whose cultural and racial identities are especially impacted by our current landscape are additionally compounded. I help clients apply their inventive genius to their own relationships thereby forming an adaptable process that speaks to their values, concerns, and lifestyle.
Personal experiences as a creative person-of-color uniquely inform my work. I value safe, dynamic environments for exploring our imagination, desires, and hopes. Through this work, clients report feeling a positive shift in the quality of their relationships and renewed confidence in their roles as partner, parent, and creator.
