Message to clients

I work collaboratively with my clients to establish their goals, their treatment plan, and how we will work together. One of my main priorities is to establish and maintain an environment conducive to your growth. I aim to make sessions productive through our strong relationship and treatment practices supported by research. As someone with marginalized identities, I am particularly interested in working with others with similar identities including race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and kink and beyond vanilla practices. However, I love to meet and work with all.

As a couple and family therapist, I cannot help but think and approach problems from a systemic perspective. This means, I will not just focus on the client(s), but also their context, relationships, and broader systems that might impact them.
