My Approach to Therapy:
I strongly value the unique intersectionality of each individual and/or collective identities and narratives, and approach therapy from a relational psychodynamic perspective. I am interested in focusing on and using the therapeutic relationship to explore, process, and rebuild psychological patterns of self-worth and interpersonal dynamics that are underlying symptoms. I welcome collaboration in cultivating a curious and open space to empower growth in self-agency as well as growth in the capacity to reflect on the self, other, unconscious mind, and emotional experience. I believe this is vital for deepening self-compassion and integration of one’s various parts of self and history of life experiences.
I draw predominately from the relational psychodynamic, attachment, family systems/differentiation, and existential theories intersecting with social justice and trauma-focused perspectives. I hold great interest in working with marginalized communities and diverse identities, particularly during this tumultuous time of sociopolitical unrest. Other areas of interest include but are not limited to relationship issues, grief, trauma, vocational stress, immigration/acculturation, grief, and emotional dysregulation.
