My Approach

I integrate cultural and socio-economic influences as they pertain to and impact the presence of trauma, intervention, healing and recovery. I utilize a trauma informed, insight and action oriented approach, working towards optimizing functioning, decreasing symptomology and increasing awareness with my clients

My Background

I provides counseling to adult and adolescent individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, behavioral issues and self-esteem/worth symptoms. I work largely with clients around identity challenges; many of my clients are of sexual, gender and racial minorities struggling with acculturation and healthy adjustment. I am registered as a Transgender Competent mental health therapist, who is qualified to provide assessment and letter writing required for gender affirming surgeries. I also work with those experiencing relational conflict and co-parenting concerns pre and post divorce.
