Professional statement

L’Or​​éal is on a mission to liberate her clients from the trauma, roles, responsibilities, and expectations that dull their shine and hold them back from being their most authentic selves. As a queer, multiracial woman who grew up in a culture different from hers and her parents, L’Or​​éal deeply understands the nuances of identity. Her role involves working with clients to understand, love, and heal all the parts of themselves.

As a whole, she employs an intersectional, holistic, integrative, and liberation-focused approach to care. Flexible in her style, L’Or​​éal designs her practice to accommodate each client’s needs by introducing an array of modalities (as needed), including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS). She also uses mindful and expressive techniques to help her clients to be reflective as well as stay grounded in the healing process.


Message to clients

I provide a non-directive, trauma-informed, and healing-centered approach, layered with intention and compassionate confrontation (as needed). In session, I hold space for taking mindful breaks and sitting with the occasional silences. These moments are sacred and allow for your inner healing intelligence to connect with the inner-directed wisdom.

Rather than honing in on a problem you may be facing, I seek to partner with you to find solutions that may get you unstuck. I may include grounding activities, the occasional homework exercise, and appropriate humor as it comes naturally.

I’m committed to helping you uncover or build on your strengths, values, and beliefs so you can make decisions that are in alignment with what's important to you. I want to help you look at a difficult situation in a more adaptive way with curiosity, honesty, and compassion.
