About

My approach as a counselor is highly relational, I believe that acceptance, safety, and trust are important aspects of engendering connection with people, particularly in clinical work. We all have a unique lens through which we view and understand the world - I focus on understanding each individuals’ subjective experiences that create their realities and facilitating the exploration of perspective through a variety of expressions. I believe we can all find more compassion toward ourselves and others by tapping into our innate healing intelligence to achieve greater coping and balance.
I am passionate about assisting clients to increase their awareness through a biopsychosocial and physiological framework. I draw inspiration from person-centered, humanist, and systems theories and affirm individual complex cultural experiences including race, SES, sex, and gender identity. I am a supporter of relational diversity and body liberation.
I am a certified trauma professional - specially trained in trauma-informed approaches, but use an eclectic style of treatment. My interests are in trauma and complex trauma, psychedelic-assisted therapy, and integration of art and somatic interventions from a wellness model.
