I am invested in the client's well-being and the discovery of assisting clients to develop new and alternative ways to cope with their life-controlling problems and issues in a safe nonjudgemental environment. I believe that the most important aspect of therapy is the client's needs and the ability to build rapport and trust through empathic listen and honest feedback.

I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

To say that I chose my profession would be untrue. In reality, the world of social and mental health counseling chose me. Compelled by my creative predisposition, I worked for many years in the fashion industry, before earning my MSW degree. For me, there is no greater challenge and no greater reward than helping people break generational cycles of abuse. In my social work career, I have helped my clients work through issues like depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, PTSD, and other acute, existential symptoms of trauma that can severely hamper their ability to live without fear of themselves or others.

I believe that we come into this world whole and remain whole as we travel through our lives. Collectively and individually, however, we suffer trauma as the result of the human condition. We develop brilliant coping mechanisms for survival that, over time, become a hindrance to our continued evolution. I use a holistic treatment approach, that addresses the whole person (mind, body, soul and emotions). I view my work with clients through the lens of social justice. I am especially sensitive to how various societal oppression becomes internalized and impact our mental health and identity.

Approval seeking, bad relationships and addictions keep us from living out our true potential, but they're not the real problem. Many practitioners provide a long list of conditions, diagnoses and symptoms they treat. Frankly, I'm not all that interested in symptoms: I want to help you figure out why you've been using the same strategies for years and expecting different results. If you want to stop waking up every morning and hoping that somehow - today - your life is somehow going to be different, you've got to DO something different.
