About

I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.
I pull from a wide variety of modalities and cater my clinical approach to each of my clients. I tend to favor drama therapy (the use of creative/performance art forms in sessions), CBT, TF-CBT, Attachment, Narrative, DBT, Somatic, and Psychodynamic models.
I am especially passionate about supporting couples, youth, young adults, the young at heart, and those who feel they have lost or never known their inner child, PTSD, generational trauma, identity issues, ADHD symptom management, relationship conflict, LGBTQ.
