I hold an assumption that the contexts of people's lives are integral in understanding both the problems that they are up against, as well as the knowledge they have in spite of those challenges. I think about people as more than the obstacles that constrain their lives. Rather than focusing on getting to the bottom or the root of an issue, I am interested in asking questions that can help you think differently about it. I believe people carry with them talents and skills that live just alongside their problems, and make up unique resiliencies that have gone unnoticed and unaccounted for.

As a cancer survivor myself, I know first hand how scary the "C" word is. As a result of cancer treatments, often times people develop mild to severe forms of depression, anxiety, scanxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Many people experience symptoms during treatment while others are symptomatic only after they are in full remission. My practice treats fellow warriors and their families that are navigating the cancer process, survivors trying to figure out their “new normal”, individuals in remission for years but are still processing the events that once happened, and those currently battling metastasized cancers.
