Intersectionality and social justice have always been central in my practice and philosophy as a social worker; I like to view my clients within the context of their identities and environment and consider what in those spheres may be helping or hurting them. I believe my responsibility as a therapist is to actively listen to, support, and guide clients through their healing process and to do so in an empathetic, inclusive, and educational manner. For me, therapy should be a space that cultivates both resilience and self-compassion within the client.
My clients can expect a therapeutic approach that is trauma-informed, client-centered, and culturally humble. My approach is flexible and eclectic, drawing mainly from relational-cultural, psychodynamic, attachment, and feminist theories, allowing me to adapt my work to the unique needs, identities, and lived experiences of my clients. In each session, I strive to create a safe, open environment that embraces vulnerability, fosters empowerment, and holds space for the parts of clients that they have historically been told to hide. I treat my clients as the experts of their own experiences and use this mindset to empower my clients to be the agents of change in their own lives. Above all, I value the power of human connection and relationships, and I aim to build a growth-fostering, therapeutic alliance with my clients that can itself be a catalyst for healing.
