I have always been deeply intrigued by the transformative power of social connection. Ever since I was young, I have been in awe of how healing it can be to engage with another person in a collaborative and meaningful way. I explored this phenomenon as a student of neuroscience, an ensemble musician, and a social justice advocate before finding my true calling as a therapist.
Cultivating true change in my client’s lives through an authentic and empowering relationship is one of the most profound privileges I have. Establishing a safe and supportive environment for my clients is at the heart of my work as a therapist. Being an advocate and a helper have always been a core component of my identity. In my work, I demonstrate that by offering my clients a supportive and affirming space to expand their self-awareness, process difficult life events, and heal. My goal as a therapist is to create an environment in which the clients I serve feel safe enough to breathe life into every aspect of who they are.
I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients – it is an honor to work with each individual I see. That being said, many of the clients I serve are working through trauma, burnout, grief, challenging life transitions, or interpersonal concerns. I also specialize in supporting clients who are working towards expanding their self-concept and exploring aspects and intersections of their ethnic, cultural, racial, sexual, and gender identities.
I believe in a person-centered intersectional feminist approach to working with my clients and value our relationship as equals. Throughout the counseling process, I intentionally broach issues of culture, context, and identity beyond the first session; I believe that by taking this active approach my clients have seen that the space we create together is safe and strong – within our therapeutic relationship we can hold and ultimately heal deep, intergenerational wounds.
