Approach to Therapy:
I strive to nurture client relationships through the use of collaboration, empowerment, openness, and respect. I help clients navigate their thoughts, beliefs, and emotions while encouraging them to find and develop their own voice, use that voice, and challenge the status quo/any systemic barriers they might encounter. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of each client's journey of self-exploration and growth. I tend to utilize holistic and integrative therapeutic approaches rooted in multicultural counseling, feminist theory, systems theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and person-centered therapy.
Approach to Wellness:
My approach to wellness consists of carving out intentional time in my schedule to spend quality time with my friends and loving family and engage in activities that bring me joy. I enjoy discussing social justice issues, writing, watching tv, singing and playing ukulele, trying out new food places, and making up random comedy sketch ideas.
