Many difficulties stem from a lack of emotional connection. I work with couples and individuals to resolve their concerns, focusing on identifying whatever connection may be broken or missing and strengthening or building it. I also work with people who have a religious background and faith-based concerns. I am guided by an awareness that even systems set up to help people can further oppress them; I saw this clearly while working with families impacted by the child welfare system. In my clinical practice, I actively seek ways to de-colonize therapy and minimize systemic harm and oppression that can be present in clinical settings. I am easy-going and adaptable, and I believe that you are the authority in your own life.
