I have skills working with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness meditation, and Internal Family Systems. While we can use any or all of these as needed, what I have found in my practice is that what is most effective to healing is the therapeutic relationship—that you feel comfortable opening up to me and learning about yourself with me. My aim is that we build trust, and I earn that trust through actively listening to you and learning to support your goals in your internal and external worlds. At the end of the session, my hope is that while you might not feel better right away, you feel seen, supported, and a little closer to achieving the goals that brought you there in the first place.
I am a mixed-race queer woman and practice from Multicultural, Feminist, and affirming perspectives. I also offer Emotional Support Animal Assessments because I believe people with disabilities should have equitable access to their dwellings.
