I believe deeply in the power of restorative justice. I advocate for change on individual and group levels by empowering clients to discover their truth and find their voice. I work from a multicultural framework that assumes there are a multitude of valid ways to understand reality, and that each of us is deeply informed by our own individual, familial, and cultural contexts in how we approach our work together. I actively work with clients (and do my own personal work as well) to unpack implicit biases, to identify and work through prejudices, and to learn how to do conflict in a way that leads to healthier resolutions. In my work with groups, I support group members to learn how to communicate both tender and conflictual feelings, knowing this will reverberate outward into each group member's life in positive ways. As a teacher/supervisor, I work with fellow therapists to develop skills of self-reflection and curiosity toward each client's unique pains and potentialities.
