​You and your loved ones deserve to feel understood and safe as you explore challenging patterns throughout your healing journey. I am passionate about working alongside folx who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. I look forward to helping clients who are hoping to deepen their understanding of their identity and learn how those intersecting factors impact how they show up in interpersonal relationships.

I work with couples/ partnerships, families, and adults. I believe healing and strengthening the relationships in our lives is of utmost importance. I am especially passionate about working with couples/ partnerships around issues of sexuality and pleasure.

I understand the decision to pursue therapy can be difficult. My promise is to provide a safe environment of empathy and advocacy. I am thrilled you are taking this important step to take care of yourself and your relationships. I would be honored to work alongside you. I look forward to hearing from you!

I obtained my Master’s Degree in Couple and Family Therapy with a concentration in Sex Therapy at Antioch University Seattle. I am currently working towards becoming a Certified Sex Therapist through The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). In addition, I also hold Professional Memberships through the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and Washington Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (WAMFT.)
