How I work: 

There are 5 major movements or key approaches in psychology: Psychoanalytic, Behavioral, Humanistic, Multicultural, and Social Justice. Rather than applying a medical model to the 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 draw from a variety of evidence-based and empirically supported theoretical orientations while recognizing the need to attend to cultural and other forms of human diversity. I believe that the approach comes from the client. I am guided by a Postmodern Systemic approach as well as Experiential therapies, Feminist theory, and creative arts therapies. I am also professionally trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) as well as certified in Narrative Therapy.

We will consider your experience in family context as well as the broader social, spiritual, and political framework. Possibilities along our journey will be inspired by you. We may question the effect of gender roles and stereotyping as well as investigating our cultural understanding. We may use creative arts to bridge the relationship between language and action. We may spend time unblocking emotional expression and opening up to your inner experience.

We may look at the intersection of identities and the social construction of our experience. Culture, privilege, racism, heterosexism, oppression, classism, ageism, ableism, etc. are important contextual elements that play a role in our lives and are considered when determining goals and strengths.

I am LGBTQIA-friendly, poly-friendly, kink-friendly and I am inclusive of all gender and sexual diversities.


Therapy can be a challenging, cathartic, difficult, amazing, eye-opening, and beautiful process. I will be there to guide and support you in our sessions together and will help you to bring about positive change in your life.
