Professional statement

Beatrice chose social work because it supported her belief that people are part of larger systems that affect their well-being. She is trained to be a culturally responsive care provider. Her years of studying early life development give her insight into supporting children at all developmental stages as well as adults who want to explore and examine their inner child. Beatrice identifies as a queer individual and understands the power of life affirmation. She offers a safe, welcoming space for all clients, no matter how they identify.


Message to clients

This is the space to let out all that has been kept inside, everything that felt like it was unsafe to say and feel can come into the room when you're ready. I'm dedicated to helping people build self-compassion within the context of structural issues and offering tools to balance between humanism and neuroscience. I see you through the eyes of someone who believes you can succeed. My personal experiences with therapy as a child and teenager help me relate to many issues young people face today.
