Profile
“Working together is an interactive process that involves exploring patterns and trying to understand experiences.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
This is a career I've been drawn to since I was 15. I had been involved in peer mediation in middle school and the idea of repair work between and within individuals had resonated with me ever since. I eventually began Capaz Counseling after years of working in hospital settings and nonprofits and wanting more nontraditional and culturally-attuned approaches to marginalized populations. While I have been trained in ACT, DBT, TF-CBT, CBT, and MI, and I find that Emotionally Focused Therapy is the best way to help my clients connect to their emotional experiences and rework them into more helpful patterns.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working together is an interactive process that involves exploring patterns and trying to understand experiences. I work best with people who are curious about themselves and eager to try different approaches.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm hopeful that the mental health field will keep expanding its culturally-informed conceptualizations and approaches.
