About My Clients
Are frustrated with 1 or more of your relationships? Do you feel like all you do is argue? My main goal is to provide psychotherapy services in a judgment free zone where individuals, couples, partners, and families can grow in communication and process their emotions and experiences. I aim to serve communities that are traditionally misunderstood like, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ, Polyamory, and Kink/BDSM. Therapy that focuses on transforming the space between people.
My Background and Approach
My overarching philosophy in therapy is Postmodernism and Collaborative Dialogic Practices. This influences the way I position myself with my clients. These modalities place the client as the expert or “knower” in their life and the therapist is the expert in change processes. I will use both of our expertise to facilitate therapeutic change. I acknowledge that therapy is not a one size fits all, so I adapt my approach to fit my clients needs at the time. My intention is to support my clients in meeting their goals as well as empower and equip them with the resources they need to lead a more fulfilling life. The interventions I use come from several related theories and I choose which ones to use based on the issues and distress level presented at the time. I am knowledgeable in the evidence‐based change processes and various theories on therapy including Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Narrative Therapy (NT), Collaborative Therapy (CT), and Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT).
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I truly believe there is no benefit in remaining stuck in vicious cycles that can be detrimental to the most important relationships in your life. I bring my authentic self to every session, and encourage you to do the same. I do not have all of the answers to this thing we call life, but I believe in using our encounters as opportunities for growth and development for everyone involved. Using theory and knowledge, we all can work together to come up with solutions that are unique to you. Within that process I will assist you in identifying negative behavioral patterns, becoming sex and body positive, and cultivating a space where collaboration, communication, and connection reign. Truth and authenticity are underlying pillars that are woven throughout my professional philosophy and professional practice.
