Announcement icon I am accepting new clients and providing teletherapy services remotely (i.e., through HIPAA-complaint video conference or by phone).
I offer a nonjudgmental, empathic, and genuine approach with all of my clients. I bring empathy into every interaction I have with every person and I operate from a social justice, anti-oppressive perspective. I incorporate the Liberation Health Framework into my work, paying close attention to how oppression affects one’s experience moving through the world. My identity as a queer mixed race woman of color strongly influences my practice and work with clients. I have experience working with QTPOC communities, disenfranchised & marginalized identities, and folks navigating mental health challenges.
Common topics clients bring into our work are life experiences related to identity formation, family/relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and trauma. I use an eclectic mix of theories with a trauma-informed psychodynamic & intersectional foundation at the heart of all of my work. I also incorporate elements of DBT, CBT, MI, and Mindfulness into my work.
Most importantly, I work collaboratively with my clients to find the approach that would be most fruitful to their experience in an attempt to reach greater understanding and insight about relational/behavioral patterns. I believe this work leads to a more fulfilling and empowering life.
