My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Audre Lorde, one of my favorite poets, articulated it best: “If I didn’t define myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” Daily, we move through our lives without pausing to ask: who am I, how am I feeling, what do I need, what are my values and narratives, and how do I choose to respond to this world? Therapy has the capacity to be a safe, inviting space to move through our stories of wounding to find our empowered self with the guidance of a trained mental health professional. My therapy philosophy is that each person has healing potential within themselves and my goal is to illuminate that healing source through skillful care.
