Biography

My philosophical approach is Humanistic encompassing Anti-Oppressive Practice, Empowerment theories, and the Strengths Perspective, which is used to inform my practice when working with individuals.  My areas of clinical interest are working with Anxiety/Depression, grief/bereavement, addictive behaviors, and how race and racism intersect with mental health disorders. I enjoy working with people who are bright and curious about themselves.  I believe that life’s challenges, symptoms, and problems contain valuable insight into oneself. My style is interactive and practical;  I offer open and honest feedback to the people that I work with but I’m also open and receptive to receiving feedback as well which is further utilized to inform my clinical practice when working with people. I believe that every human being has the ability, strength, and knowledge needed for healing; my job is to provide the tools and support needed to help people move towards living their lives in a way that meaningful to them.
