My Approach to Helping

Empathy-driven therapist fostering growth and resilience. Brave space to explore, heal, and thrive. Let's navigate your journey together.

My goal is to empower my clients to tap into their inherent strengths and resources, enabling them to overcome adversities and develop resilience. By employing evidence-based therapeutic modalities and prioritizing a client-centered approach, I help clients gain insights into their thoughts and behaviors, fostering positive change and personal growth.

More Info About My Practice

As a dedicated therapist, I believe in the power of empathy, compassion, and inclusivity in the healing process. My passion for mental health and well-being extends beyond the therapeutic space, as I actively support causes that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. I am an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and racial justice, and an active feminist. I have two little brothers adopted out of the foster system, and I am also an outspoken advocate for change within the foster system. I strive to create a space that embraces the unique identities and experiences of all clients, including how intersectionality of identities affects each individual's unique life experience. I view mental health as the foundation of overall well-being and believe that healing is a transformative journey of support, self-discovery, and growth.
