My clinical orientation and philosophy:
I take a trauma-informed relational and biopsychosocially-focused harm-reduction approach to therapy, one that is multimodal and intersectionally feminist.
I recognize the complexity of physical and psychological trauma and its potential impact upon a person’s thoughts,feelings, bodily sensations, core beliefs, and communication styles and believe in the profound healing capacity of a strong therapeutic relationship.
At the same time, I also believe that healing from a history of trauma and oppression is not always an isolated process and interlocks within the complexity of one’s biology, personality, environment, society, and larger multi-systemic issues; and that we are always evolving individuals and part of an evolving collective.
Considering these factors, I recognize that not everyone learns and grows the same way, so I try to remain dynamic and flexible according to your needs.
