I believe the key to change lies in cultivating a trusting, strong therapeutic relationship. Through a developmental lens, I aim to understand each person’s history and how their unique story informs their current challenges. I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming and inclusive therapist, striving to help all clients feel a sense of safety in exploring their own intersecting identities. I feel passionate about working with clients from diverse backgrounds and utilize a culturally-informed approach when understanding life experiences and associated thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In conjunction with my psychodynamic, relationally-driven approach, I help clients identify a clear presenting concern, develop goals, and integrate the appropriate evidence-based practices tailored to their specific needs. Integrated modalities include: cognitive behavioral therapy, feminist-based interventions, mindfulness-based strategies, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
