Profile
“After completing my undergraduate degree in art therapy, I shifted to clinical social work for a practice more directly centered on social justice.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
After completing my undergraduate degree in art therapy, I shifted to clinical social work for a practice more directly centered on social justice. Being queer myself, it has always been very important to me to hold healing space for the queer community.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer a 30-minute, free, remote consultation. If we decide to work together, we'll meet weekly either remotely or in person for outdoor park sessions. I occasionally assign homework in the form of a skill to practice between sessions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
My continuing education has primarily focused on mindfulness and intersectionality in mental health spaces. I find it important to collaborate with other providers as this pushes me to grow and expand my points of view, which helps ensure the best care for my clients.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in the dignity and worth of every individual. This is the guiding value of my practice.
