My background is feminist and strength-based, and grounded in the idea that therapy is at its best when the therapeutic relationship is strong. I am informed by Gestalt, mindfulness and psychodynamic principles. This means I work with you in the present moment to explore different ways that you can connect with yourself without judgement, as well as exploring the history and relationships that have impacted your life. This can also include paying attention to the stories and thoughts running through your mind or what your body may be trying to say. I honor your individuality and your unique way of connecting to the world, while taking into consideration the influences of personal history as well as the larger political and societal contexts, including the impact of patriarchy, white supremacy, capitalism and the current state of our political and cultural environment.
Please note: I do not see couples or teens in my practice, but I would be happy to provide recommendations.
