In my therapy room, I offer a safe, comforting, and genuine space for us to work from. My priority as a therapist is to emphasize your existing strengths to encourage resiliency and self-respect while working with you to grow in areas that feel less developed. I work with a wide variety of clients with diverse ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds as well as a range of different presenting issues. As a therapist, I am direct and collaborative. I use humor, honesty, and a warm presence to cultivate a trusting relationship between myself as your therapist, and you as the client.
I am specifically interested in working with young adults who are experiencing life transitions, or who have experienced sexual trauma and/or traumatic loss. I believe in a holistic, person-centered approach to therapy, which means that we will work together to address multiple areas of your life (relational, emotional, mental, and physical), and I will encourage rather than lead you along your path.
I have a background in crisis intervention and trauma work, specifically with survivors of gun violence. I use several evidence-based treatment modalities in my work:
- Trauma informed
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Mindfulness and self-compassion
- Culturally sensitive
- LGBTQIA+ friendly
While I might use guiding principles in my work with all of my clients, I tailor my approach to each client to fit their unique needs. I am collaborative both in my relationship with you as the client and with other treatment professionals such as psychiatrists and other mental healthcare providers when appropriate and consented to.
