PHILOSOPHY

I approach clinical work from a relational and attachment-focused perspective. I believe that humans heal and change in relationship to others, and that our connection is paramount for us to be able to do meaningful and long-lasting work. My understanding of the world is also inherently systemic, such that each individual’s intersectional identities, as well as larger systems (e.g., family system, cultural groups and values, larger systems of oppression such as racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, sizeism), should be made explicit and honored in each session.

THERAPY WITH ME

We will begin our work with a clinical interview and co-construct a treatment plan based on your goals and unique intersection of identities. One of my main goals is to build a warm, honest, and boundaried working relationship with you. I tend to speak casually and frankly; I try to aim for compassionate and validating directness. For a few minutes at the end of each session you and I will also likely discuss how to better focus and personalize our approach. My hope is that our work together will feel collaborative, flexible, and transformative while also attending to the very real systems of oppression from which you have experienced harm.
