My approach to healing and personal growth is client-centered, culturally sensitive, egalitarian, and trauma informed. Through a client-centered approach I focus on compassion and unconditional positive regard for each person as a human being. My own life experience as a bi-racial person, along with graduate level training in women and gender studies, inform my culturally sensitive approach. I take an egalitarian stance, and work to create an equal, human to human, relationship and interaction with my clients. Trauma-informed care includes respecting boundaries and taking the healing process slowly while trusting in the body's wisdom and ability to regulate and heal. I have a warm, nurturing, and comforting presence. I am an empath that will make you feel heard and seen in a non-judgmental way.
