I believe we all find ways to survive overwhelming circumstances in our lives. At times these ways of surviving the past become issues in the present. We might feel lost, alone, powerless, and helpless. Even if we want to change, the fear and discomfort may seem like too much to face alone. My philosophy is that through relationships built on trust and validation, we can begin to venture into the unknown to acknowledge and grieve the past while exploring possibilities for change in the present.
I believe in intentional and inclusive spaces. I recognize racism, xenophobia, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, sexism, and all forms of oppression to be inseparable from experiences of mental health. I strive towards active engagement in anti-racism and intersectional feminism in my personal and professional life. My work as a therapist and social worker is deeply personal and political. It is my honor to hear your story and support you along the way.
