About My Clients
You want to fit in your own skin and live in balance—finally fully being you. You’re ready to make peace with that inner critic. It's time to take on those things you’ve been putting off for too long. You deserve to find internal stability, nurture more rewarding relationships, and gain a sense of belonging and community. I can help you get there.
My Background and Approach
I work with you to customize therapy based on your personal experiences and needs. We'll look at how past relationships, unequal power dynamics, and safety concerns have affected your mental health and well-being. Our goal is to change negative experiences into positive ones. I use proven techniques and the latest research in attachment and brain science. I will teach you the skills you need to overcome your challenges and make lasting life improvements. I received training at Pacific Center for Human Growth, serving the mental health needs of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. I also have advanced training in therapy approaches, including Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Attachment, T-groups, and Gestalt awareness.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe everyone can change and improve their lives. I help clients make positive changes in their lives whether they have relationship problems, feel overwhelmed with emotions, or just feel something isn't right. I don't think just identifying symptoms is enough to fix it. I also don't think that all problems are just inside a person and they need to face those problems alone. Our struggles and who we are come from a complex interaction between our experiences, our relationships, society, and culture. Healing begins by understanding how harmful things have hurt us, how old behavior patterns lock us in, and realizing that we are not defined by what others have said about us in the past. Healing lasts by changing behavior and acting on new insights.
