“Shame dies when stories are told in safe places”
– Ann Voskamp
Everyone deserves recovery, without question. Many a times, the lessons we have learned through our journeys attempt to convince us that we are “less than”: less than our peers, our families, society, and, most importantly, ourselves. These lessons, in turn, can leave scars that impact our abilities to feel in charge of our thoughts, our emotions, even our lives. As your clinician, I must emphasize the passion, and privilege, I feel to supporting you on these next steps of your process.
As my goals as your clinician, I hope to achieve in developing a safe and supportive environment that highlights the importance of finding and developing you, whomever they may be. My approach is informed by therapeutic practices which emphasize authenticity, self-compassion, and teaches life-lasting skills that continue to reinforce the sense of empowerment you have always deserved.
My experience circles working with adults, ranging from young adulthood to elders, couples, and families. My background is emphasized on trauma treatment, depression, anxiety, stress tolerance and management, substance-use backgrounds, communication and conflict resolution, and solid sense of self development. My dream is to support you finding your authentic self. You’d be surprised in who you’ll find!
