Approach to Therapy:
My approach to therapy is integrative with an emphasis on multicultural, family systems, psychodynamic, and social justice with a growing interest in incorporating mindfulness strategies.
Approach to Wellness:
I enjoy sharing stories and laughing with friends and colleagues, exercise that incorporates cardio and dance, watching a variety of TV shows, trying out new recipes and restaurants, and spending time with family.
My supervisory style is collaborative, supportive, and developmental. In the beginning, I like to get a sense of what my supervisee's learning styles, goals for supervision, hopes for personal and professional development, and how our multiple social identities/multiple systems interweave into these areas. I like to ask questions, encourage my supervisees to be curious about the therapeutic process, utilize parallel process, and help supervisees strengthen their therapeutic voice.
