About My Clients

My clients are often having difficulty with managing experiences of abuse/neglect, trauma and lack of access to effective social support systems. These challenges often manifest as difficulty managing emotions, declining grades, difficulty adjusting to new environments, difficulty maintaining relationships that are important to them and with developing new relationships, as influenced by regression in social/emotional development that may complicate their transition into and through adulthood.

My Background and Approach

My focus when working with clients is on placement stabilization, trauma healing, relationship building, emotional and social skill building to support overall improved functioning; and equipping parents and caretakers with support, tools and skills to manage their children's needs. I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused and Supportive Therapy techniques to assist with improving my clients' awareness of their need for change, to explore barriers preventing them from making desired change, and to equip them with the skills needed to make and maintain their progress towards change. My clients often feel like they have no control over the things happening in their life. I believe that all of my clients are resilient and I work to empower them to recognize their strengths and the influence their decision making has on their ability to better cope with challenging situations.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I strongly believe that healing happens in relationship, and developing supportive, nonjudgmental and trusting relationships with my clients is always a priority in my practice. I often tell my clients that we do the best we can with what we know and have, and encourage identification of their strengths while empowering them to further build on their abilities. In my practice and in my personal life, I find it important to empathize with the limitations people often face that are out of their control, and to be mindful of how those experiences may show up in how one makes choices for their life. Playing an active role in addressing barriers influenced by institutional racism, poverty, and the prison industrial complex/school to prison pipeline greatly influences the ways in which I advocate for my clients.
