I combine expertise as a licensed therapist and advanced yoga teacher to create a comprehensive experience of healing and growth. I work remotely, through phone, video and messaging. Together we customize a plan that's right for you. Basically, it's really-feel-good therapy 🙂
Licensed Therapist, Yoga Teacher, and Healer
I care for all clients of all populations, but my experience and heart most commonly attract those who have struggled with anxiety and depression, stress, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, sexual assault, chronic illness, survivors of domestic violence and toxic relationships.
Communities that feel most comfortable with me are the LGBTQ+, Latino, Asian, liberally minded folk and those who are willing to try new things.
I am a fluent Spanish speaker, lover of nature, traveling, yoga, health, fitness and wellness, meat & fruit, running, and DEFYING expectations of SOCIETY! Be who you are, as you are.
