What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

I really value the ongoing development of the therapeutic relationship. We take up space in therapy talking about what was liked/not liked, offensive, didn't land right, or what you may want to ask for but don't know how. I believe that this type of honesty can birth deeper attachment and transformation.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Growing up I navigated complex institutional/religious trauma, and enmeshed family dynamics with undiagnosed mental health issues. These experiences inspired my work as a therapist to stop the tabooed culture and stigma around identifying trauma, that allows others to heal and break free from it. My background in Social Work has fueled my passion to disrupting harmful systems of oppression that get internalized into our thoughts and bodies. I hope that we can begin the conversation that unlocks your liberation and healing.
