I approach the therapeutic process in the spirit of Sankofa- a West African symbol meaning “return and get it.”  I believe that each and every one of us have an innate wisdom and strength to grow from life's challenges and heal from painful experiences. The key lies in learning from our experiences, both past and present, and letting that acquired knowledge guide our futures. It's my job, and privilege, as your therapist to help you process your story- creating room for insight, forgiveness, healing, and growth. For this process to take place, collaboration and safety are crucially important.  It’s important that you feel comfortable with me and safe to share freely- so we will move at your pace and comfort level.
