As a clinician, the foundation of my work is based on developing a relationship, providing empathy, forming a pathway for open communication, and remaining non-judgmental while creating a safe and comfortable environment. Utilizing a trauma informed and culturally humble lens I understand that each client is unique and deserves the most effective treatment for his/her individual needs.
