I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is committed to providing care that honors the inherent dignity and worth of every person. I strive to create a judgment-free space and strong therapeutic relationships where clients feel accepted, empowered, and supported as they grow to know themselves more deeply and tap into their inherent strengths and resilience. I take great care in tailoring the work to clients’ individual experiences while providing support guided by my clinical expertise.
My approach is integrative and trauma-informed, meaning I draw from various theories and current research to best meet the needs of each individual client and family while holding space for the impacts of individual and collective trauma. My work incorporates mindfulness practices and creative expression with roots in cognitive and psychodynamic approaches.
Every individual comes to therapy with their own unique story shaped by their life experiences. In building relationships, I am committed to being mindful of the multitude of cultural and historical factors that influence our lives including race, sexual orientation, physical ability, gender norms, religion, intergenerational trauma, systemic racism, and much, much more. I strive to be an ally of members of the LGBTQ+ community, BIPOC, and other groups that have faced systemic marginalization and oppression.
