My approach to therapy incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Humanistic Therapy to help clients align their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with their values. I believe clients have the power to improve their lives by reinterpreting their experiences and identifying what they can and cannot control. I also believe systemic injustices and entrenched hierarchies based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, class, ability, and other factors play important roles in shaping personal experiences.
