Originally from the United States, I've spent half my life living abroad in Japan, South Korea, and now Germany. With a mixed heritage background, I empathize with the challenges of the international and immigrant experience.
Formerly, I was an Expressive Arts educator with a Reggio Emilia-inspired philosophy, focusing on Social-emotional Education and advocating for Anti-Racist & Anti-Bias practices. I now hold certification in counseling and I've transitioned to focusing on mental health support, allowing me to dedicate more time and attention to individuals and families with complex needs.
As a queer practitioner, I approach my work from an intersectional feminist perspective. I place great importance on the mind-body-spirit connection and practice self-care through yoga and social justice advocacy.
Inspired by the positive impact in my own life, I hold certifications in children's, teen's, adult, and trauma-informed yoga instruction, as well as eco-therapeutic guidance.

I work through a method of social-emotional regulation and emotional literacy. This will look and be different for every child and may mean that counseling is not always done through back and fourth verbal communication—It will be an artistic one. It can be within visual arts, movement, and sensorial experiences that children can and will communicate deeply about their feelings and ideas.
-Learning support, developmental or academic
-Neurodiversity support (ADHD or autism)
-Emotional regulation and emotional literacy support
(ex: a change in family dynamics or big life changes)
-Targeting conscious and sub-conscious healing from social biases and systematic oppression that are directly connected to your child's/family’s identifiers
(For ex: exposure to homophobia, racism, and/or ablism)
Combining cognitive behavioral approaches and systems theory- we engage in dialogue and through a creative and conversational process. Through our work together, we set goals and work on how to apply strategies so you can feel more in control of managing your problems by uncovering more constructive ways to think and behave.
*Please note the my method is holistic for a 360 degree approach to care, doing art or doing yoga for example will never be mandatory if you are feeling uncomfortable to do so. They only just offers and resources available to you.
