My therapeutic approach combines imagery, mindfulness, spirituality, and cognitive techniques in a structured treatment plan designed to meet each client’s specific treatment needs. I provide trauma counseling and assess, diagnose and treat anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, OCD and substance use. Together we work through shame, guilt, family conflict, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, parental neglect or abandonment, grief, work and school stress, identity challenges and more. I work from a decolonizing space. Meaning I factor in how people and systems affect your mental health.
I work from a person-centered, humanistic approach. I utilize a trauma-informed perspective to recognize how disruptions of the past may inform you in the present and help the process with EMDR. Furthermore, I work from a culturally competent stance, where I acknowledge the whole self and create a space that honors personal identity and intersectionalities.
Feeling safe, confident and clear can be challenging. However, developing the skills to remain regulated is possible anda critical part of thriving as opposed to simply surviving. I'll sit with you every step of the way, listen compassionately, evoke a safe curiosity about yourself and the world and leave you feeling safe within yourself and around others.
