I believe healing happens when we feel safe enough to show up exactly as we are. All parts of you are welcome here. I’m not here to change you or fix you. I don’t think you are “broken” or that there's anything "wrong" with you. Together we'll create an open, accepting and compassionate environment, with respect for your intuition + body's wisdom underlying all that we do.
I’m trauma-sensitive + social justice-informed and view therapy through an intersectional lens (mind, body, environment, culture). During our time together, we’ll likely look at environmental factors (interpersonal, economic, oppression) that create individual/collective stress and trauma.
My approach is both collaborative and holistic, centering around values of embodied presence, empathy, connection, and deep listening. I’m relationship-centered, inspired by polyvagal theory, and incorporate somatic + mindfulness-based approaches into sessions.
