My therapeutic philosophy is centered in creating space for affirmative narrative and identity development. Grounded within the work I have done with individuals and communities who have graciously shared their struggles, pain as well as triumphs and resilience, deeply inform the textured and holistic space that we create together.
I am active and engaged—and use curiosity, authenticity, and, at times, humor, to honor and elevate your lived experiences and create space where we can explore the complexity of relationships and systems that shape how you understand yourself, ways that you relationship with others, and navigating the social environment.
I leverage the relationship between us to explore patterns and dynamics, as well as support you in developing concrete skills and frameworks that addresses and helps you to manage experiences of trauma, grief/loss, anxiety and depression. I emphasize the journey that creates a pathway for acceptance of your full humanness.
I have taught at NYU’s Silver School of Social work, provide consultation for mission-driven projects, and provide clinical supervision for clinicians of color and those in the LGBTQIA+ community.
