I believe that therapy, at its core, is supposed to be a meaningful and collaborative relationship. By respecting and understanding your lived experiences, I will work with you to raise awareness about the areas of your life that might no longer be serving you. Through my approach I encourage self-empowerment and firmly believe all individuals have an innate ability for positive growth.
I use an integrated psychotherapy method grounded in existential, phenomenological, interpersonal, and gestalt approaches. This allows me to focus on developing a comprehensive understanding of your worldview. I will make space for creativity and flexibility, suiting the therapy process to your needs, rather than applying a one-size-fits- all model.
An important aspect of my therapy is my commitment to social justice advocacy. I acknowledge the ways historic systems within our society have marginalized and oppressed individuals. Rather than acting as if these do not exist, I call them out and name them; highlighting the ways they may be impacting your mental health and well-being.
While I consider myself a generalist that can assist in a wide-range of difficulties, my primary specialties are: persistent depression, anxiety, identity development, life transitions, LGBTQIA+ concerns, spiritual and religious concerns, grief, loss, and caregiver roles.
