I approach therapy from a relational psychodynamic and existential-humanistic framework, with strong influences from intersectional feminism and trauma-informed care practices. I believe therapy is a collaborative dance between client and therapist, so my hope is to co-construct a brave space for us to do this work together. What this means is, my work is to gently explore the complexity of your identity and experiences with you. Yours is to bring your whole self to each session. As I pay attention to the emotions, sensations, and thoughts that come up for you, I also hold in mind the systemic factors that have had an impact on your relationship with yourself and others. I do so from a posture of curiosity and unconditional positive regard so that you may feel safe enough to experience and express your thoughts and emotions, without shame. Here, we compassionately tend to the impact of harm, grief, and shame, as we co-create space for you to explore what it feels like to flourish.
