"Whatever your reasons for coming to therapy, I will meet all parts of you with respect and non-judgment. My sense of humor and realness helps you get comfortable, and even laugh sometimes; my grounded, caring presence makes it safer to talk about and experience challenging emotions. Therapy work with me involves thoughts and insights from the mind, feelings and sensations living in the body, and relationships with others in the world (particularly the one between client and therapist); a balance of resources which we will use to help you explore, understand, integrate, and move yourself closer to healing."

"I have witnessed many times the power of psychotherapy to improve people's lived experiences. I approach clinical practice with the belief that personal development and larger social change go hand in hand and that bringing about social justice necessitates that we transform as individuals, communities, and societies. Psychotherapy with me is grounded in recognizing the global factors (oppressions and privileges) shaping individuals while incorporating an understanding of personal responses to lived experience."
