About

In my clinical work, I focus on the development of the therapeutic relationship, first and foremost. This can look like: learning about you, prioritizing what you bring to session, and gently encouraging you to work toward your identified goals. I use what comes up in the therapy space as opportunities for relational skill-building, such as focusing on strengths, building self-compassion, learning to identify wants/needs, regulating emotions, and working through conflict. I interweave understandings of sociocultural context to contextualize your experience, and to move the foci of change from what isn't in your control to what is.
I specialize working with queer and trans BIPOC folks. Having worked in university counseling for seven+ years, I also have extensive experience working with: life transitions, career, procrastination, emotion regulation, codependency, perfectionism, identity development, privilege and power, and relationships (friends, partner(s), family, coworkers, etc.).
If you're struggling with being hard on yourself and others, like you're hitting a wall with trying to change something about yourself or your relationships, I have a wild hunch that, perhaps, there are reasons. And through this growth process, I hope we can learn to understand, accept, and shift what's in your control and allow for what isn't.
