I come from a social work background and have experience supporting pregnant/postpartum individuals, individuals with trauma, youth/teens, and LGBGTQ+ teens/adults. I meet each new client where they are at, with an understanding that each individual has been uniquely impacted and shaped by their life experiences, traumas, and the societal systems that inform all of our lives. I take a trauma-informed, strengths-based, person-centered approach to help clients identify and leverage the many strengths/skills they already possess, while supporting them in building the skills they need to reach their goals. I also utilize feminist and political frameworks to acknowledge and support clients in identifying the ways that community/societal structures interact with their unique identities and experiences. As someone who works with women, pregnant/postpartum individuals, LGBTQ+ folks, poly/ENM folks, and other marginalized groups, I have found this to be a vital component of therapeutic care.
