I hold a humanistic view of counseling and wellness. As a result, I believe everyone is equipped with the potential to heal and fully experience a life well lived, but these gifts are often blocked by our past hurts. While diagnostic language is sometimes helpful and appropriate, my therapeutic approach views human suffering through a non-pathologizing lens. I see humanistic, client-centered psychology as a more powerful, humane, and evidence-based alternative to the medical model of mental health care.
I have a passion for exploring how internalized oppressive messages from society may influence how we think and feel about ourselves and the world around us. If relevant to your experience and treatment goals, it would be my honor to support you in your journey of healing from the hurts of oppression and prejudice. I welcome clients from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, as well as LGBTQ+ clients and partnerships/families in any form.
