Commitment to Social Justice

Discussion of intersectionality and systems of oppression is common-place. That is to say, I work towards an integrative understanding of internal systems. I work towards locating our identities and the dance of those identities within ourselves. More specifically, the interpersonal relationships created as our varying identities dance with the systems around us.

I utilize a candid, collaborative approach to elevate the humanity of all parties, and empower and invite clientele to join me in the therapeutic growth process.

Additionally, I continuously seek supervision and advisory supports to increase and maintain awareness of ways I have participated in systems of oppression. Advisory supports include peer support, trainings, educational materials oriented towards social justice, and engaging with literature on decolonizing frameworks in therapy, education, and research methodologies.
