My Background and Approach

Because at our core we are social beings, relationships are central to our lives. These relationships not only include our relationships with others but also our relationship with ourselves and society as a whole. Based on this lens, my goal as a therapist is to help you gain insight into how these relationships are influencing your current experiences. In particular, we will look closely at family relationships, as they are often the first relationships in which we learn how to be in relation with others. Additionally, we will pay special attention to all of the identities that you hold (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and more) in order to address how issues of power, privilege, and oppression impact your day-to-day being. By gaining such insight, you will find yourself feeling able to enact intentional and meaningful change, including finding new and different ways of coping and being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Throughout the course of therapy, I pay special attention to the relationship being built, knowing that feelings of safety and trust are essential to creating a space in which you can truly be vulnerable and enact such change. I welcome and strongly encourage any and all feedback, as it is extremely important that you are getting what you need in our time together. The therapeutic space is yours to be cared for, heard, and fully seen. Furthermore, I see myself as a fellow traveler, supporting you on your journey of personal growth. Although my education and experience allow me to facilitate growth-promoting therapy, I, ultimately, see you as the expert on you. My aim is to support and guide you in empowering yourself by harnessing the strengths and agency within you.
