About me

Thanks for Coming! Let me start by saying I appreciate you, and this journey, whether yove been on it or you're a seasoned vet, is hard. It’s my belief that our overarching theme is that of the clinically based Relational Culture Theory, which seeks a reduction of the power dynamics of the “Therapist-client” relationship and creates mutuality, a push towards connectivity over exclusion, and a search for relational images that impacts the choices we make. Our process is built on the assumption that meaningful, shared connection with others leads to the development of a healthy “felt sense of self.” I hope to do a simple thing for you: help you create a narrative that you agree with, address the issues internally and externally, and empower you to get a sense of zest not just for your day-to-day but also to put the blame in appropriate places moving forward, complain, advocate, and grow in any direction you desire.

Coming from a lens of peacebuilding and collaboration, I use transformational meditation language to help support a lens for change, place frustration, blame, and actions in the appropriate place and support a change in the individual belief system. We are a team from the moment the forms are signed, and we shall wage good conflict and seek "answers" from different places together. I have over 13 years of social work experience, primarily working with at-risk, high-need, DSS, DV, Chronic DSS, and complex cases, including Reactive Attachment Disorder, Munchausen by Proxy, Rare Genetic Disorders, and Co-morbid neurological and behavioral diagnoses. Coming from an advocacy and political engagement lens before I became a therapist, I have come to realize that we live in a world with a valorization of power over others and an overemphasized inner psychic view of conflict that tells us we must strive for independence and success rather than interconnectedness. Instead, I believe we as individuals have much more zest than we give ourselves credit for. I believe you were resilient long before me and will be long after; it is up to me to guide you and remind you of how you did it or want to do it again moving forward.


What might our helping process look like? Every process is different but by large these steps can be expected on our journey:
1. The First step is naming the problem and noticing who makes the rules 2. Learning how to complain and state the need beyond oneself 3. Claiming Strength- waging good conflict 4. Develop Communities of Resilience and Courage 5. Problem Solving Phase: Burst Sheet, Six Thinking Hats, CBT, Johari Window, and more.

We use these tools to create a holistic lens and assessment for you or the ones you love. That way, moving forward, you will have a road map and a description of the most important thing in this world: you.
