It is important that you can be your true self in the space we co-create and that you feel seen and heard to ensure that the therapeutic work we engage in is safe and manageable.
I strive to create a warm, empathic space, utilizing multiple approaches to create a truly customized care plan for your therapeutic needs and goals. My approach can also be straight-forward, and I like to utilize humor where appropriate. I draw from various theories and therapeutic modalities while considering the context in which you are in. What this means is looking at the bigger picture and considering: societal influences, privilege(s), systemic barriers, and other factors that influence (directly and indirectly) your wellness.
