Philadelphia Therapist

Healing is a non-linear process, with an ebb and flow of ups and downs as we navigate the world, our relationships, and ourselves. As a systemic and relational therapist, my perspective consists of exploring a person or a relationship system’s context of intersectionality (ethnicity, race, culture, gender, sexuality, etc.), attachment, family of origin, power and privilege, and environment. My style of therapy is warm, collaborative, and insightful to make you feel acknowledged and grounded to help promote your healing. I will compassionately push you forward with more directness when needed or slow things down when we think it is time to pause.

I draw from therapy models such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, Contextual Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I keep in mind trauma-informed practices throughout the process. In addition, I consider the importance of building a strong, trusting therapeutic alliance with one another. I typically come in with a set level of support to help you but tend to adapt to fit your needs. I also think staying open to receiving feedback throughout our time together is crucial.

I completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado Denver and received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Human Development and Family Relations. Following this, I finished a Master’s in Couple and Family Therapy at Drexel University, where I am pursuing a Ph.D. in the same field of study.

My clinical experiences include working with different diverse individuals, couples, and families, addressing attachment injuries, relationship patterns causing distress, and other systemic difficulties. In research, I have experience in topics such as gender-based violence in LGBTQ+, health and aging, substance use, and couples transitioning to parenthood. In both settings, I acknowledge myself through reflexivity and Person of the Therapist, which recognizes each person’s uniqueness through self-reflection and curiosity about my personhood.

I am originally from Southern California, and I identify as someone who is queer, brown, and neurodivergent. In my free time, I enjoy playing video games, being out in nature, going to music events, long road trips, having silly, goofy moments, spending time with loved ones, and going down rabbit holes on Reddit.
