Description of Counselor/Practice

In our therapeutic partnership, we will focus on identifying how you can have optimal experiences of nourishment, celebration and healing, to help you acknowledge and center the unheard voices of emotions triggered by trauma, stress, and oppression. My work focuses on a healing-centric approach which moves from the questions “what happened to you?” to “what’s right with you?” which aims to empower those exposed to trauma to be agents in the creation of their own well-being while utilizing healing strategies. My hope is that you will shine, out of the shadows of invisibility, so that your gifts are seen and heard in spaces that try to confine and silence you. ​ I apply modalities such as Integrative Therapy, healing centered engagement, Dynamic Mindfulness, coaching, meditation, motivational interviewing, narrative practice, and cognitive behavioral therapy. ​ I’m committed to centering Black, Indigenous, People Of Color experiences through a decolonization, liberation, and social justice framework that incorporates healing centered engagement that embraces a holistic view of well-being that includes spiritual domains of health. I apply culturally responsive approaches that include intersectionality and traditions, and I adapt and incorporate new techniques as needed.
