There are many reasons why you might be looking for a therapist: help with a long term struggle, support during a current life situation, and/or your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can develop a solid relationship with. In our work together we will come to understand more about what isn't working. You may be feeling stuck, sad, alone, consumed by rage, or unsatisfied. You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you feel safe to talk about yourself openly.
My style is relational, collaborative and engaged. My understanding as a therapist is informed by my training and clinical experience, but also grounded by a long-held commitment to my own psychological work and development.
My clinical training has emphasized using a strengths based approach to psychotherapy with a focus on multicultural mental health. I have worked directly with members of the LGBTQ community, people of color, and the elderly. Additionally, I have experience treating a variety of personality disorders, as well as issues related to loss and grief.
