My Background and Approach

I believe we are all born with the innate capacity to be connected to our feelings and needs, without judgement or shame. Experiences in life, and sociocultural messages, all inform and influence our understanding of ourselves, our feelings of worthiness, and our connection with these deeper parts of ourselves. Sometimes, in experiences of trauma or prolonged stress, we develop ways of existing and coping that are necessary for our survival, but over time may no longer be needed, and can decrease feelings of connection, with self & others. You are not broken, you were born with innate wisdom, and therapy can support the process of reconnecting with the insight that is your birthright. Therapy can be supportive of quieting the noise, sinking into this deeper inner knowing, and support living a life rooted in authenticity, self-trust and self-compassion.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have over a decade of experience working with individuals impacted by a broad spectrum of lived experiences, including trauma, depression and anxiety, who also experienced impact by systems and oppression. My theoretical orientation is most often more holistic and fluid to meet your goals and areas of interest or focus, and highly informed by utilizing an anti-oppression, pro-liberation lens, rooted in liberation psychology, intersectional feminist theory, systems theory and humanistic psychology. My clinical lens is trauma and racial justice informed, strengths based, and responsive to supporting you at all stages of life. I also have interest in all mindfulness-based approaches, as well as Eastern philosophy, and my theoretical orientation and perspective is also influenced by the brilliant work of Pema Chodron, bell hooks and Angela Davis.
