My clinical expertise includes depression, anxiety, complex trauma, PTSD, crisis stabilization, suicide prevention, family conflict, gender & sexuality, domestic violence, life transitions, and sexual assault. I identify as an intersectional therapist, which means I strive to affirm and warmly welcome your intersecting identities, which include sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, race, ability, and class.
My Background and Approach
I use an variety of different interventions such as trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), mindfulness, somatic awareness, and eco therapy. I have worked with a many different populations including transitional aged youth, former foster youth, children and teens, parents, elders, minorities, LGBTQAI identities, victims/survivors of sexual assault/domestic violence/incest/sex trafficking, people who are houseless, new mothers, and veterans.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
An important part of my practice is developing a safe relationship with my clients to help them find their voice and uncover their own intuitive wisdom. This is no easy feat as our internal critic’s voice can, at times, be deafening in combination with the weight of the world. Thats why reaching out to others, whether a friend, sibling, or therapist, is crucial to our survival. I am attracted to post modern therapeutic theories, which address how societal systems impact personal wellness while moving away from individual labels that may perpetuate feelings of shame. In this kind of work, my goal is to serve as a co-author in rewriting your narrative in a way that affords you more agency and joy in your life.
