My journey into counseling initially began as a counselor of law and subsequently, as a therapist. In helping my clients, I take a holistic and strength-based approach. I view clients in the context of their family, racial/ethnic identity, and social or cultural environment. I work with emotions to strengthen the bonds in relationships. I also focus on solutions, working through trauma with the body, and I integrate the practice of mindfulness and compassion into my work. I am trained in emotionally focused therapy. I use attachment theory and integrate principles of relational-cultural theory, somatics, EMDR, and neuroscience into my work.
