Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
I operate from a multimodal framework that assesses individuals holistically with a foundation that is person-centered and tailored to the client. Areas of interest include grief and loss, LGBTQ+ issues, multicultural counseling, polyamory, mindfulness, self-compassion, existentialism and religious identity, and veterans’ issues.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
My views on diversity are informed by intersectionality and cultural humility. I aim to understand each facet that makes up a person’s self-concept and how those components impact the individual’s beliefs about themselves and their world. At the same time, there is so much I have to learn and so I am dedicated to checking my assumptions as well as to lifelong learning. I believe each of us has a platform and I value using my power and privilege to destigmatize the seeking of mental health services and to promote universal access to mental health services without exceptions. I am excited to explore and celebrate the differences that make each of us unique along the lines of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, country of origin, ability status, religious and spiritual beliefs, or any other identity markers that matter to you.
Approach to Supervision
I use feminist supervision in order to reduce the power differential inherent in the supervisory relationship and to foster an open and affirming environment.
I love spending time with my spouse and our pets, listening to music and going to concerts (mostly metal, punk, synthwave, and pop), lifting weights, cycling, yoga, cooking (and eating!), traveling, writing, playing video games, and karaoke!
