About My Clients

As a BIPOC individual, this may or not be your first experience with therapy. You may feel overwhelmed by stress, life transitions, and past unhealed wounds and are unsure of what to do. Or you might be curious about the roots of your distress and pain. Or you might feel burned out from the ongoing fight against social injustice. Or you might struggle to find emotional balance as you pursue a degree in higher education. If any of these describe you, know that you are not alone and there is hope.

My Background and Approach

The foundation of our therapy relationship will be compassion, active listening, and openness. Together we will make space to bear witness to you, your experiences, and the context in which you live. We will validate the feelings that are so often minimized and dismissed. Importantly, we will explore the connections between your multicultural identities, past experiences, and present needs. We will also determine the coping skills that serve your needs and which ones no longer do. Moreover, we will develop new techniques to make meaningful life changes and support your mental health.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Our intersecting social identities, experiences of oppression, and potential areas of privilege influence our lived experiences. While some identities may at times be more or less salient or visible, each has value. Therefore, I believe it's essential to include these parts of your identity in the therapy process. Together we'll tailor our work to honor your holistic experiences and needs. Moreover, I am committed to the continued process of reflecting and learning how to dismantle oppressive systems and advocate for those who are oppressed. I hope to add to the tremendous work being done by others across historically marginalized communities.
