My primary goal in working in mental health is to put myself out of a job. Given that each of us intrinsically know what we need to heal and grow, my approach to psychotherapy is to couple your expertise of being you – your reality and lived experiences – with my skillset, in order to collaboratively work towards achieving your goals. Through a culturally-affirming and healing-centered stance, I utilize evidence-based treatments to facilitate our work. My primary therapeutic approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which centers mindfulness; ACT allows us to foster compassion and commitment to self in the service of living an enriched life, in spite of the discomfort and challenges which arise while trying to live it. I also utilize DBT, CPT, PE, and I am a certified CBT therapist. I am dedicated to working with communities who have been pushed into the margins: our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color) family, LGBTQIA+ & GNC (gender non-conforming) family, poly family, and disabled family. Despite the predominant narrative, our existence is synonymous with liberation, transformation, and love - let's actualize that together.
