As a social worker, I’ve spent over a decade seeing people at the lowest points of their lives, having suffered child abuse, violent relationships, depression & anxiety, drug addiction, and other hardships. I learned that so many of us feel alone, stuck, and misunderstood. I learned that most of us just want to feel comfortable in who we are, and know someone is out there that just "gets it." Creating a space where people can tell their stories, feel heard, and have support they need to make the change in their lives, I'm honored to say that I've also part of people's stories in rising to their absolute best, with no turning back.
All of us feel lost and connected at some point in our lives, because we live in a world where social injustice is so painfully obvious to some, and willfully denied by others. I became a therapist so I could work towards social change in a way that was personal. I wanted to be that person that my client's could feel really understands them, and gets how racism, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia and other forms of social in equity truly do impact mental health, and are often at the core of the hardships we suffer. It can be hard to talk to family and friends about this kind of stuff, which is why I'll make as much space as you need to work through it all.
