"I enjoy working with a diverse group of people that come from different communities, socioeconomic status, ethnicities, and cultures. It is an honor to be allowed into their lives and to assist them with living up to their life’s potential."

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.
