About My Clients

Are you curious about what lies deeper and want to uncover the root issues to your mental health concerns? Or maybe you feel really stuck or you're on the fence about letting go of problematic coping behaviors or high risk behaviors. If so, we would likely be a great match! I also welcome clients who have had bad experiences with mental health treatment in the past and are looking for a repairing experience with their new provider.

My Background and Approach

I've sought advanced training in a wide variety of therapy models over the years. These days, the primary model I use is Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a respectful, experiential approach towards healing deeply wounded places within a person, which I find often creates faster rates of change than traditional talk therapy. The first decade of my work as a therapist involved working with high-risk youth, foster youth and those with severe and persistent mental illness. This community-based work deepened my awareness of systemic and institutional oppression that those with mental health challenges face on a daily basis, so I often turn to Relational-Cultural Theory as helpful model, as well. I have my own history of recovering from mental health issues and pursuing personal transformation. Experiencing how hard it is to get unstuck from my own challenges has given me a lot of compassion for my clients. I'm here to support you!

Social Justice Issues I Care About

I support Black Lives Matter, the Land Back Movement, gun reform, police reform and Antifa. I believe that no human is illegal and that food is a basic human right. I also believe in mutual aid and environmental healing. The more I support clients in recovering from their mental health concerns, the more I see how much the toxicity in our culture and society are major contributors to these personal issues. I have been actively working on uprooting biases and prejudices that were ingrained in me from an impressionable age. I have a strong social justice lean and care deeply about the intersections of oppression that my clients face in our world.
