My practice strives to create an environment where you can express yourself without fear of judgement. The goal is to understand your experience and work to see things in a new light in order to bring a renewed sense of hope. Establishing a strong toolbox of coping skills along with raised awareness of what brought you into therapy can bring a stronger sense of empowerment for positive change. I believe everyone has the ability to navigate what life throws at us and make meaning from those challenges. "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. The best is yet to come.” ― Zig Ziglar

As a philosophical counselor, I use philosophical inquiry, art and literature, to help you examine your life and face the inevitable challenges of being human. I provide an open and safe space for you to explore, amend and support your values and beliefs. Through this process, new areas of insight, clarity, and creativity will open up for you. It will give you the chance to develop a coherent worldview or "philosophy of life" that can deeply inform, and bring joy to, your life.

Having worked in the addiction field for some time, I have come to believe two things. One is that group therapy isn't for everyone. I offer individual counseling that focuses on just you and your goals. Two, addiction affects the whole family. Looking back at where the problems began, sometimes as early as childhood, can be instrumental at understanding how to move forward into a life that is manageable.

I value intersectionality (a term coined by Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw ) and see it as crucial to my practice. My work is rooted in the attachment theory, meaning I understand that developing safety, connection, empathy, and compassion have yielded the best results in therapeutic relationships. I believe that my embodied and holistic “doing” exists in trauma-informed healing and liberation from systems/forces of oppression, body and sex positivity, equity, radical (self) love, and personal transformation. I find deep purpose in healing all forms of trauma (e.g. racial, religious, developmental, acute, chronic, complex, etc.).

I believe in a holistic approach to therapy—in other words, treating the whole person rather than fragmenting someone into parts. This approach involves meeting my clients where they’re at, focusing on the therapeutic relationship, and working together to create realistic goals. I am empathetic, direct, and keep it real while maintaining compassion. Most importantly, I believe that therapy can (and should) be fun! I pride myself in creating a therapeutic space where my clients can work on the hard stuff, but also take space to laugh and just be human.

My approach is gentle and eclectic, person-centered and collaborative. You are the expert of yourself and sometimes it's helpful to have someone to listen to understand. I like to provide validation, exploration, and support. First timers to therapy and those taking the leap to try out therapy again seem to appreciate my style. Whether you are rediscovering yourself, going through a stressful time, wanting to process trauma, etc., I'll be here alongside you. I consider the family system, childhood/caregiver attachment, parenting styles, generational trauma, systemic racism, larger society, etc. and all these impacts.

Individuals are often given advice by those who have not taken the time or had the ability to understand the issue. My goal in therapy is to understand the concerns and challenges from your perspective. Only after a relationship based on trust, empathy, understanding, and at times even humor, has been built, can I help you achieve your goals. Everyone deserves individually tailored treatment. If this approach seems to be a fit, please schedule an appointment. If for some reason it seems that I can't help you, I will do my best to help you find someone who can.
