About My Clients
As a multicultural woman, I not only have personal experience with historical trauma, intergenerational trauma, and women's issues, but I also specialize in grief and loss, sexual assault/violence, suicidality, relationship issues, transitional difficulties, depression, anxiety, identity formation, and more. With experience serving ages 12-adult, I aim to create a safe space to explore an array of different obstacles within the human experience to leave the client feeling empowered and heard.
My Background and Approach
I am a Licensed Social Worker, graduated from the University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work, Four Corners Program, Summa Cum Laude. I care deeply about merging my passion for social justice and how oppressive systems can affect our mental health clinically. Integrating our adversities and strengths can lead to the empowerment of ourselves to find fulfillment in confidence, decision-making, and relationship. Utilizing evidence-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I have worked with individuals across the lifespan from children experiencing grief and loss, college students struggling with depression, anxiety, and more, to caregiving for the aging population with neurological developmental disorders. My tailored client-centered approach has lent to creating meaningful therapeutic relationships that instill hope and healing.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
With a deep personal and professional understanding of social work, social justice, social change, and historical trauma, I align myself in support of the acknowledgement and healing of Indigenous Peoples, the Black Lives Matter Movement and Black / African American folks experiencing racialized trauma and injustice, as well as the LGBTQIA+ community continuing to fight every day for equity across systems. I have a well-rounded perspective on spirituality and challenge myself to do continued allyship work within myself and my practice to show up for the intersections of my clients with a mindfulness around impact and action.
