I am interested in multicultural aspects of therapy, especially intersectional identity issues related to LGBTQ+ identity. I also enjoy exploring the process of identity development, as well as spirituality/faith concerns.
Approach to Therapy
I take a collaborative and client-centered approach to therapy. I practice predominantly from a Person-Centered theoretical perspective, with influences from Interpersonal and Gestalt theory. I believe every client knows themself the best, and it is my job to help facilitate the process of helping you find wellness. I try my best to provide a warm and welcoming environment, where you feel safe to discuss and explore very personal concerns. Being human is beautifully messy, a tapestry of joyful and painful moments. When we move past the expectations of how we think our lives should go, we can more fully appreciate and value the life we are currently living.
Approach to Supervision
I like to provide a collaborative and developmental approach to supervision through a multicultural lens. In addition to supporting trainees in developing the theoretical foundation to the clinical work they do, I also take a process-oriented approach to supervision; exploring interpersonal dynamics and personal/professional development.
Approach to Wellness
Outside of work, I try to live the glamorous life by reading, exploring nature, cooking, and travelling. I recharge by engaging in spiritual practices, meditation, and authentic human connection.
