I lean toward systems theory, with a humanistic perspective, aiming to be mindful of intersecting identities, the environmental, and experiential layers.
I believe strongly that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in attaining benefit from psychotherapy. Feeling safe, validated, and heard are incredibly important. A sense of trust, as well as having a supportive, and open environment are foundational in beginning the process of unpacking, sorting, and addressing what has brought you to this moment. Essentially, your connection with your therapist matters. My approach is person-centered, with hopes of being able to meet you where you are, with a therapeutic orientation that is intuitive in nature.

I see psychotherapy as a way to more fully empower and express one’s self in the world, whether as a child, teen, or adult, and, in the process, heal the various “symptoms” that stand in the way. It’s my belief and experience that that sense of self is, by nature, strong, clear, and caring, and yet can become problematic, in feelings and behavior, through the difficult experiences that life can bring. I see my role as helping to bring forth the experience of this successful and caring self, and, specifically to assist the client to heal the problematic traumas, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, that interfere with this.

Thank you for visiting my page. I offer 30 years of experience working with marginalized populations in various capacities. My own life experiences have prepared me to walk with others through challenging life obstacles. Simple strategies that I find helpful are creating a self-care plan and making more connections through this journey. It is in these connections we gain resilience and start the healing process. I have learned over time that when I cannot change life’s circumstances then I might need to change my approach or perspective. Please feel free to reach out if you have more questions about me.

Are you standing on the threshold of a heartbreaking or unimaginable tragedy? It could be a midlife transition, a death, an empty nest, a divorce, a different unspeakable loss, or even a gnawing pain that haunts you from the past that you don't know how to shake. Despite how good you are at "holding it together," I understand how exhausting & painful it can be to navigate loss. I've been in this place before too, & I want you to know that hope is waiting for you even if you feel breathless, broken, or lost.

For 25 years I worked with over 16,000 suicidal patients on the mental health unit of St. Francis Hospital with my office partner, Dr. Sunida Bintasan, Adolescent/Child Psychiatrist (who also works with adults). From observing their common patterns, I created an educational program (for persons with issues of deep despair, hopelessness, depression, recurrent suicidal thinking) called Contextual-Conceptual Therapy (CCT). Combining expressive arts techniques, education, and therapy using "maps, models, & metaphors", it helps clients discover the roots of their suicidal thinking/ deep despair to develop healthier relationships.

Hi y'all, I am honored you are taking steps toward empowering yourself! Suffering is an inherent part of life. Hardships in isolation, in aloneness or toxic relations, forms habitual patterns of trauma that can degrade our potential for living and loving. Yet when supported in holistic and compassionate relationships, our past pains have the potential to become present healings. Our trauma responses become wisdom to learn from, and our relationships become integrative dances of healing self and others. Together we can create a therapeutic relationship to unlearn traumatic patterns, empowering a thriving and flourishing life for you.
