I believe that mental health should be approached holistically, & emphasize the intersectionality of all identities--sexuality, gender, race, age, religion, ethnicity, immigration status, etc.--within the therapeutic space. You are bringing a rich array of life experience & strengths to the table.
I challenge the inherent power dynamic that exists between therapists & clients. I believe we are all experts of our own lives & experiences. I am always learning, & this is especially true in the counseling relationship. I strive to create a collaborative relationship that responds to your strengths to help in learning skills to cope, process stresses, & empower yourself on your path to healing. I look forward to working with you.
