The folks who I work with are often those who are in transition. Here, transition can be used as an umbrella term for anyone who is simply experiencing life as most of us walk around in a state of constant evolution. More specifically, I find myself working with adults, young adults, adolescents, and female-identified individuals who identify with diverse communities including communities of color and the LGBTQIQA2S communities.
I identify as an integrative psychologist, meaning I draw from various schools of thought including, but not limited to: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Strengths-Based Models, Trauma-informed care, Culturally-informed models, Psychodynamic theory, and Client-centered approaches.
Whether acting as a therapist, educator, or leader, my life’s work has focused on providing services that directly honor voice. Creating spaces of safety, authenticity, and deep care for individuals and those who support them to thrive is where my passion lies. Under the umbrella of mental health, I have worked with individuals and groups who struggle with experiences such as complex trauma, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, life transitions and other day-to-day difficulties related to identity (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, and sexuality). I am a strong advocate for engaging with people through an overarching strengths-based model as a way to support individual and system-wide growth.
Why I love this work
There is nothing quite like the honor of bearing witness. Each day I come to work, I am amazed by the bravery and courage of clients who are willing to share their story. It is a great privilege to hold space, and a profound joy to create the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual safety that all beings deserve.
A little bit more about me…
I was raised in Southern California, so I’ve always had a great love for sunshine and the ocean. Other things that make my heart happy include: Great Apes, dancing, being silly, going to the movies on Sundays, speaking my truth even when it’s hard, smiles from strangers, music and poetry that give me new language, family time, and puppies… because how can your heart not be happy when you see a puppy?!
