How I Work
I blend somatic practices and mindfulness skills with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while holding a relational and psychodynamic framework.
In sessions, this means we build awareness of your thoughts, emotions and body's sensations. Without judgement we bring curiosity to these components and utilize this information to move towards clarity, desired change and growth. We'll bring attention to beliefs that may be holding you back and move towards a more empowered self. We'll increase your understanding of self, identifying relational patterns that may no longer be serving you.
In my perspectives I strive to undo anti-blackness, white supremacy, patriarchy, heteronormativity, capitalism and systems of oppression. I am committed to the healing and growth of people of color, and white allies, in hopes of advancing racial and economic justice for our collective liberation.
