About My Clients

Existing and attempting to thrive in times of uncertainty under oppressive social systems can feel incredibly daunting, especially if you hold identities that society marginalizes. I work with clients seeking to understand how oppressive systems impact their lives and create feelings of depression, anxiety, or trauma. By helping increase this awareness, clients are better able to free themselves from these potentially harmful messages and step into healthier ways of existing.

My Background and Approach

Oftentimes, our histories, circumstances, environments, and relationships lead to feelings of distress. Coupled with life’s general demands, it's no surprise that you may experience feelings of depression, anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and associated with this. But when we feel overwhelmed, it’s not because we are deficient but because our life demands have exceeded our resources. Rather than being “weak”, you merely lack the tools, perspective, or resources to cope. I focus on the ways mental, physical, spiritual, and social aspects intersect and effect client experiences. My approach draws on many theoretical orientations and techniques with the ultimate goal of creating a validating, safe space where clients feel capable and empowered to make positive change. I believe clients are doing the best they can with the resources at their disposal. I’m here to help you draw on your strengths and identify your current resources while developing new strategies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all human being inherently have value and strive to create a practice that reflects this. Therapy is a collaborative process in which clients are the expert in their experience. My role is to help you understand and make sense of those experiences in an empowering way, and I feel privileged to engage in this process with clients.
