My goal as a professional counselor is to provide both equitable and inclusive services to each of my clients. I prioritize acknowledging and respecting each client’s held identities and I continue to educate myself in order to maintain a sufficient level of multicultural understanding. I hold the belief that we all are the experts on our own lives and believe that the change process is something we both go through together.
I trust that the continual examination of the power dynamics in our relationship is necessary to sustain equity and I invite my clients to inquire upon any and all therapeutic interventions and plans for treatment as we move forward together. I like to stress the importance of the therapeutic relationship and require future client's to engage in a free phone consultation with me prior to starting services in order to asses whether or not we are the right fit for one another.
As a white, currently able bodied, cisgender female I am committed to owning and acknowledging my privileges and am passionate about dismantling white supremacy in both my personal and professional life. I am LGBTQIA+ & BIPOC affirming and knowledgeable. Lastly, I believe everyone has the right to affordable mental health services, that is why I do my best to offer sliding scale options, when available, to those in need.
