I work collaboratively with clients, cultivating existing strengths and internal resources in order to foster relationships and life experiences that contribute to clients' recovery and wellbeing. When invited, and with respect, I’m honored to explore what makes clients who they are, and to support who they want to become. I know that through therapy, we can author and re-author thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and personal mythologies in order to bring more self-supporting realities into existence.
My approach is influenced by depth psychology, feminist, relational, collectivist, transformative justice, and somatic perspectives and practices. I additionally offer clients my hard skills in anti-oppression work, advocacy, attachment theory, harm reduction, ACT, CBT, DBT, trauma-informed, and somatic therapies.
My style is directive, equitable, and simultaneously affable and boundaried. I walk my talk and have an unavoidable ancestral relationship to dark humor via Eastern Europe.
