Who I am as a Therapist

 

As a therapist, I strive to create a welcoming environment for all that walk through the door. I aim for the client to feel like the expert in the room, as they are the person that understands themselves the best. I utilize feminist, multicultural, and affirming approaches to help one better understand themselves and how they deal with day-to-day life. During therapy sessions, I enjoy discussing values and how their unique experiences. I enjoy bringing cultural context into the room, as we are not living in a vacuum chamber and the world around us impacts us every day.

I have experience working with young adults and adults from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, sexual, gender identities and backgrounds with a wide range of mental health concerns. Although I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds, I am particularly excited about working with emerging adults, LGBTQIA+, people who identify as being disabled, and neurodivergent folx.

I view the therapeutic relationship as one of the most powerful tools in therapy. I prioritize building a safe and supportive environment, where a client can be seen and heard in a non-judgmental, welcoming place. Therapy can be challenging and at times uncomfortable and I will be there to support clients through these difficult and yet often rewarding conversations. Therapy may look different for different people, and thus I will be flexible in the therapy room to make sure someone’s needs are being met. I will aim to honor each person’s lived experiences even if it may differ from my own. I believe that therapy should be a collaborative process, and I look forward to cultivating this relationship with clients.
