“When we trust that we are the ocean, we are not afraid of the waves” Tara Brach
Initiating support for yourself is exceptionally brave and honorable. It is truly a privilege to know you and witness your journey, however it may look. My approach is rooted in warmth, authenticity, and transparency. I believe that our mental health and life challenges are a reflection of conditioning from socialization, our family of origin, and the many systems that influence and impact our wellbeing. I believe that you are your own best healer and it is my role to support you through the process.
I have over five years of experience in social work advocacy and clinical work, including supporting women and families experiencing homelessnes, coordinating mental health services for youth, and providing in-home crisis stabilization clinical support for youth and families. I draw from multiple theories and modalities including Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Holistic Psychology, Mindfulness, The Gottman Method, Family Systems Theory, and Solutions Focused Therapy. I have experience in supporting families, adults, and youth impacted by trauma, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harm, life transitions, grief/loss, perinatal and postpartum, stress, anxiety, depression, codependency, and family issues. I strive to ensure a safe space for individuals of all races, ethnicities, documentation statuses, gender identities, sexual orientations, faith traditions, and disability statuses.
