My Approach to Helping
I have great compassion for the circumstances that lead one to seek out therapy, and I commend your courage for being here. Through this work we may explore where you feel stuck and how to get unstuck, come to understand the multifaceted parts that make up your identity, what it means to be in relationship with yourself and those around you, how to be authentically yourself, and ultimately create deeper, more meaningful relationships and experiences.
My training specializes in multicultural psychology and through this lens, we seek to understand all intersections of one’s identity—gender, race, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, social class, ability, and body size—and the interplay of power and oppression within each part and in the greater context of society. Other areas of focus include trauma and grief (including gender and cultural trauma), attachment issues, mindfulness and somatic experiencing, career counseling and life design, and life transitions.
