Hello, and thanks for checking out my profile! In approaching therapeutic work with a client, I emphasize the therapeutic relationship, which has been demonstrated to be one of the strongest components related to treatment efficacy and improvement of symptoms. I draw strongly from both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and psychoanalytic theories in work with my clients. I work to empower clients while respecting their multicultural identities, but also challenge thoughts/ideas that may keep them trapped in unhealthy patterns.I have worked extensively with LGBTQ+ individuals and groups, as well as people dealing with anxiety, depression, and other mood and personality disorders. I have worked with clients in the kink community, as well as people in poly relationships. I try to be open-minded and accepting to all!In the words of one of my favorite books, “I’m not for everyone. Neither are you.” In therapy, fit is important! If you think my brand of clinical practice might be for you, I encourage you to make an appointment!
