Values & Philosophy

In my approach to therapy, our grounding place will be honoring all of the you’s that have brought you to this moment. All parts of you are valuable in our work together including ones that may be in pain or perhaps even ones causing it. I see therapy as a collaborative practice of facilitating coming into alignment with yourself -your magic, your values, your softness, your strength, your worth. I see my role and the therapeutic space as a container, model, and celebration for curiosity towards change. I believe change can happen when we are aware of what we want to change, are open to making a change, and transform our practices to create change in ways we actively and enthusiastically choose for ourselves. These processes can be deeply painful at points, deeply joyful at others, and sometimes simultaneously both.

I view thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors as guides, relying on an integrative therapeutic approach that is flexible to meet your needs and shift based on your insights. It is very important to me to be constantly holding the position of learner, both from you as the expert in your own life story, from my professional therapeutic community, and the many sources of knowledge in this world.I believe fundamentally that change work (whether within ourselves or in the systems we live in) should not happen in isolation and I strive to create a therapeutic space that allows us both to show up in our multitudes as humans.
