My Approach to Helping

Clients come to therapy for a number of reasons, such as identity shifts, grief and loss, low self-esteem, immigration acculturative stress, trauma, life transitions, relationship & family struggles, and spiritual crises. Whatever your pull to come to therapy, I acknowledge the courage it takes to participate in your healing. Through person-centered and feminist approaches, I collaborate with clients in the process of re-defining who they are that feels the most authentic to themselves. My clinical "toolbox" includes mindfulness, a trauma-informed lens, existentialism, diversity practices, and a nonjudgmental stance.

Additionally, I am curious about how our marginalized identities and or privileges influence how we see ourselves and our relationships with others. Ultimately, I hope that we can partner with your courage and figure out together how we can answer the questions you may have about your experiences and struggles.

I welcome individuals of all races, ethnicities, immigrant statuses, gender identities, sexual orientations, ability statuses, body sizes, and socioeconomic statuses. I see clients from all over Massachusetts and Illinois.
