Counseling is about creating space to become our most Authentic Self. Having someone who is there as an unbiased supportive presence can help us make the choices to a more authentic and joyful life. I believe it is imperative to create a therapeutic space where all of our intersecting identities feel comfortable and understood. From this space we can begin to cultivate self-compassion, understanding, and accountability through multiple integrated techniques (CBT, movement, narrative, mindfulness). Bringing your whole self, a sense of humor, and working together is all we need to make therapy a rewarding experience.
