About My Clients

Dysfunctional family relationships can make your home life unbearable. You feel like you’re walking on eggshells. Or, maybe you have a child or sibling or parent who suffers from a mental illness and that affects your entire family. As a family therapist, I can work with individuals, families, parents and couples to help make the entire system healthier. Sustainable change happens when the entire system shifts.

My Background and Approach

Clients are the experts in their own lives. So, I want to create a safe space for them to explore the issues that most important to them. At the same time, I also know that clients come to therapy looking for guidance. If what you were doing on your own was working, you wouldn’t be here. With this in mind, I take a directive approach to helping my clients learn tools to be successful in managing distress or conflict.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been immersing myself into listening and learning more about how therapy has been white-washing throughout the years. I am in a training called "Decolonizing Therapy for Black Folks" which is proving to be transformative. As I continue to see how systemic oppression impacts experiences in both my personal and professional life, this has led me to many meaningful discussions and rethinking some of my approaches to therapy.
