My Approach

At the core, humans are relational beings; the desire for safety and connection is innate. With this framework in mind, I utilize a strengths-based, trauma-informed, egalitarian approach to aid clients in moving toward emotional regulation and a positive view of self and others. I wholeheartedly believe that each person has a unique story to share; I aim to provide a safe space for clients to do so. 

 

My therapeutic approach is warm, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. I primary work with couples and adult individuals, utilizing a relational, multicultural, and affirming lens. I believe in the science of attachment and the power of relationships to foster healing and growth.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, I view clients through a systemic lens. Mental health issues and symptoms rarely happen in isolation; the micro- and macro-systems that we exist in have a profound impact on who we are and how we interact in the world.

My Values

AUTHENTICITY

Authenticity is at the heart of how I approach therapy. I believe that building a connection and establishing safety starts with the genuineness of the therapist.

AUTONOMY

Therapy is an informed choice. Anything that happens in the therapy room only happens with your consent. I believe in empowering you to navigate your own therapy and helping you build trust in your own decision-making.

RESPECT

Fostering an atmosphere of respect is essential. All humans deserve respect, regardless of the identities they hold. In valuing respect, I practice from an affirming, non-judgmental perspective.

EGALITARIANISM

You are the expert in your life. I may have the therapeutic tools to help you navigate your journey, but I believe in egalitarian relationships and eliminating power dynamics. I take a curious approach to understanding your lived experience.
