About

I strongly value the unique intersectionality of each individual and/or collective identities and narratives. I am interested in focusing on and using the therapeutic relationship to explore, process, and re-build psychological patterns of self-worth and interpersonal dynamics that are underlying symptoms. I welcome collaboration in cultivating a curious and open space to empower growth in self-agency as well as growth in the capacity to reflect on the self, other, unconscious mind, and emotional experience. I believe this is vital for deepening self-compassion and integration of one’s various parts of self and history.
I practice predominantly from the relational psychodynamic, attachment, family systems/differentiation, and existential theories intersecting with social justice and trauma-focused perspectives. I also hold great interest in working with marginalized communities and diverse identities, particularly during this tumultuous time of sociopolitical unrest. Other
areas of interest include but are not limited to relationship issues, grief, trauma, life transitions, vocational stress, and emotional dysregulation. Above all, I believe in the power of attuning to the therapeutic relationship and co-created space to meet the unique needs of each person to attain greater functioning, relationships, and overall flourishing.
