My Approach to Helping

It can take a lot of pain and courage to take the step to reach out to a Therapist. I create an environment of acceptance and curiosity to foster the connection we need for healing to begin. The events and losses in life can be hard to integrate and make sense of without the chance to process and grieve them with someone. I can help you feel the feelings, see patterns, identify your strengths, develop relevant skills, and plan the way forward. Connecting with your own inner clarity about things is part of the gift of doing this hard work.
This is just as true for relationships which can get stuck in cycles of poor communication when resentments or misunderstandings haven't been worked through and a neutral third party is helpful in being a referee, offering perspective, insights, and a process for repair for future missed connections.
I offer culturally responsive collaborative Therapy for Individuals and Couples. Let's get started with a plan to help you feel and do better today!

More Info About My Practice

My work is profoundly integrative and focused on the person in front of me in the session. I am so passionate about Therapy as a way for people to change the possiblities for themselves, their families, and communities. I know it has changed my life in ways I cannot even begin to describe, for which I am so grateful. This means I have been taking trainings since I began my Masters in 2003 and that allows me to tailor the theories, treatments, and modalities I am using based on the situation each Client is dealing with to offer the most effective options. Of course we check in to see if the tools and perspectives I am bringing feel like a fit, and if not we try something that feels more intuitive. I have also built my practice in a way that I felt like addressed some of the problems in traditional Psychotherapy and I do all I can to be transparent, treat Clients as the experts they are on their own lives and healthy, strong people needing the reflection and perspective we all need at different points. Luckily because of where I began my training, the inequalities in our country have been addressed in my education since the start and I have sought further education myself to make my Practice as welcoming as it can be.
