My Approach to Helping

We all have a desire to live authentically and to feel safe and well as we do so. Yet, maintaining such a balance is hard work and sometimes it can be derailed or stalled. I believe that our multiple identities and affiliations impact our sense of well-being and belonging in the world in myriad ways conscious and unconscious and so it is important to bring these identities into the counseling room so as to integrate them into the whole picture of your wellness. To do that, I practice from an intersectional-feminist social justice lens and an LGBTQQIA+ affirmative approach.

I am a politicized healer, meaning that I look at the "problems" my clients bring in as either adaptation for survival, the result of oppression, or internalized social norms are given our current sociopolitical context. I often see these "problems" as messengers about my clients' true needs or desires that might be suppressed, avoided, or otherwise unmet. While clients may be doing this for many legitimate reasons, I strive to help them find ways to be free with and connected to their authentic desires and needs in ways that feel safe for them within the realities of making their lives work through the (often marginalizing) institutions they may face.

I feel that the deep work that can be done in the counseling room with someone you trust, and who is present with you, is a powerful tool to be used toward feeling more connected with yourself and your world.
