Learning, Adapting, Growing
I believe the therapeutic process can be one of great discovery and enlightenment. My approach to therapy places my clients at the forefront of their healing journey as I guide and support each one of them. I believe that you are the expert of your life and that my role is to provide a safe and nurturing space for growth. My goal is to assist in identifying strengths and inherent characteristics to fuel resiliency in each client. Clients are coached to understand that decisions made, relationships entered into, and responses to triggers are integral in the healing process by recognizing that trauma in its many forms impacts engagement in repetitive and/or negative behaviors.
My areas of expertise include working with diverse populations ages 16-55, including people of color and historically marginalized genders and sexualities, to explore the complex intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and mental health. I am also well versed in addressing mental health concerns that arise due to "culture shock", assisting my clients in navigating personal disorientation. With this emphasis on identity exploration, I support and empower my clients in making life-altering changes through insight and self-awareness.
It can often feel as though we are alone as we navigate life’s ebbs and flows; with no one to turn to. Whether experiencing inner turmoil, family dysfunction, relationship conflict, or you could benefit from a support group, I welcome the opportunity to walk alongside you in achieving holistic emotional wellness through a culturally sensitive, client-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-focused framework.
