I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology: Individual, Couples and Family Therapy from Antioch University Seattle, USA. The degree is inclusive of creative arts therapies and drama therapy. I regularly participate in clinical consultations with other health professionals and seek opportunities for continuing education trainings to ensure that my skills remain sharp and up-to-date. I am licensed in the United States of America. I am certified in Narrative Therapy and professionally trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS).
I am a multiculturally informed, sex positive, feminist-minded professional with a passion for social justice. There are 5 major movements or key approaches in psychology: Psychoanalytic, Behavioral, Humanistic, Multicultural, and Social Justice. Rather than applying a medical model to my approach and with an awareness of the five forces of psychology, I believe in helping clients explore their personal sense of self. This journey is not linear. There is no “one way” to be.
In the helping process, I utilize techniques from numerous evidence-based theoretical perspectives while recognizing the need to attend to cultural and other forms of human diversity.
