How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Therapy goals short term and long term are a team effort. Remember, you are hiring me to help you. You have lived with yourself longer than I have. I am here to assist you on this journey

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Therapy is a gift, a privilege, an amazing tool for you to utilize to move on in life

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

I am constantly being a student so that I can be more proficient in my work with you

Work History

I am originally from NYC and have utilized many opportunities to serve many different populations. I grew up in NY Brooklyn and Manhattan and moved 1 year after 9/11 where I worked with the fire department focusing on trauma. I moved to Los Angeles in 2002. I have served many different populations and have learned so much about myself in supporting you on your path to self actualization. I have specialized in addiction and recovery utilizing abstinence based models as well as harm reduction. I have served gang youth TAY. I have worked with and supported the trans communities along every spectrum of gender identity including intersex issues as well as those that identify as non-binary. I have served the gay, lesbian, and bisexual communities focusing on coming out and acceptance. I have worked with men and women working in the sex industry, men and women working in the entertainment industry as well as all geriatric patients now not officially working LOL. I have supported those in their final stages of life as well as those dealing with life threatening illness. I utilize empowerment models as well as CBT in conjunction with some straight up talk therapy. We work together doing the work you are looking for not the work I think you need. But, as I said, I am from NYC, I will be up front with you. I have served many disenfranchised communities as well as those that have dealt with societal oppression. I am culturally open meaning there are no true experts about you except you. I will work with you from where you are and we will move on from there.
