As a social worker, marriage and family therapist in training, and educator I value and center the wisdom that clients bring into the therapeutic conversation. My values also lie heavily in centering and validating the experiences of my clients from an inclusive perspective. My goal is to balance trusting the client to make the best decisions for themselves and create space for collaboration in the therapeutic process. Whether it is Individual, Couples Therapy, or Family Therapy, I believe that therapeutic interventions are tools that support the relationships, not replace them!
Being a woman of color in the field of mental health guides and builds empathy in my work. I believe in creating a comfortable and supportive environment that encourages trust-building and playfulness when appropriate. I approach my work through an anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive lens that centers on the needs of my clients.
Creating space in therapy is a passion of mine because of my continued desire to encourage reflection, start with the strengths, and be a thought partner with clients. Please feel free to contact our admin team if you feel like our values and ways of approaching therapy align! I am excited to co-create this therapeutic space with you!
