What is your style/approach to therapy?

My therapeutic style is above all relational, meaning that my relationship with my clients is of utmost importance in developing the trust needed to address life's challenges, stressors and suffering. It is in this initial rapport building where I come to know each client's particular life situation, culture, needs and goals. I have worked for over 34 years in a broad range of settings, providing services to clients over the entire life span. I am a white, queer woman, and have provided services for over 30 years to the BIPOC and queer community. I hold your wellness in high regard and respect the very difficult life decisions that we all must make to have a life worth living. My goal is to partner with you to elevate your life state, expand your coping skills, develop healthy strategies, reduce suffering, maladaptive, and destructive behaviors, and provide presence for the softest landing possible that leads to the best interests of your very best self with your integrity intact. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
