Learn more about my:

What does a first session with you look like?

I utilize a strength-based perspective, direct communication, and touch of humor to assist clients in reaching their therapeutic goals. I practice through a lens of cultural humility and strive to create a welcoming therapeutic space that acknowledges systemic oppression's impact on mental health. My hope is for clients to leave session feeling more grounded than when they arrived.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I often utilize emotional support, increasing coping skills, and gentle guidance through interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills, and Motivational Interviewing (MI) modalities. I’m currently training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) able to offer that intervention, as well.
