I specialize in working with people who are in the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community and because these are the primary populations I serve; I aim to decolonize therapy so that it benefits people with diverse cultural needs.
My main approach is to be supportive, validate your lived experience, provide you with honest feedback, and help you explore your options as you heal. To help you achieve your counseling goals, I use a variety of methods including cognitive behavior therapy, narrative therapy, and person-centered planning.
My clinical training includes crisis counseling and psychiatric rehabilitation at Edgewood/Great Circle (St. Louis, Missouri), diagnostic interviewing at the Missouri Institute of Mental Health (St. Louis, MO), psychotherapy at PAR Rehabilitation Services (Lansing, MI), and solution focused therapy with high school students in special education programs at Mission High School (San Francisco, CA).
I am licensed in both California and Missouri and provide virtual therapy sessions Monday - Thursday in the afternoon and evening.
