My goal is to provide effective, compassionate psychotherapy to my clients while remaining sensitive to various cultural, spiritual, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.
I am affirming of those who identify as LGBTQ+ and those in poly or non-monogamous relationships. Additionally, I maintain a kink/sex-positive practice. I work with individuals, families, and couples to address a multitude of issues.
Some of the issues I address include, but are not limited to:
- Grief and Loss
- Stress and Anger Management
- Identity Development
- Multicultural Issues
- Experiences with Microaggressions
- Issues of Aging
- Life Transitions
I take a process-oriented approach to therapy.
This means I bring focus to your decision-making process. My goal is to help you better understand yourself and your emotional process.
I believe we have to understand and accept why we made choices in the past to make different choices in the future.
Exploring your past and present experiences will shed light on how your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors contribute to your internal and external conflict. These factors are different for every person, so I consider your unique culture, lifestyle, and basic belief system as well.
I integrate cognitive-behavioral, strength-based, and systemic tools to help you navigate challenges and come up with solutions.
My goal in therapy is to help my clients better understand themselves. I do this by creating a non-judgmental curious space where my clients can explore their emotions, challenge their thoughts, and connect with deeper parts of themselves.
