My goal is to assist clients with their desire to change, heal and grow. I typically work with adults with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, PTSD, developmental/ attachment trauma, self-esteem, body image, and phase of life problems. I also have interest in working with individuals with reproductive challenges (infertility, pregnancy loss, and post-partum issues), new parent adjustment, couples counseling, and severe mental illness. In addition to psychotherapy and consultation, I offer full comprehensive assessments for a better understanding of your cognitive, social and emotional functioning.
I utilize a client-centered approach, and offer multiple therapeutic techniques that meet the unique needs of each client. It's essential for me to both understand and attend to culture and the intersectionality of cultural identities among the clients I provide services, including, but not limited to race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, + SES.
In the first session, I “decolonize” the therapeutic process by emphasizing a collaborative approach. In addition to expressing empathy and validation of experience, I inform clients that they have autonomy over the therapeutic space, and I empower them to provide feedback, emphasizing the therapeutic alliance as the ultimate instrument of change.
