How I work with clients
I utilize a strengths-based approach and evidenced-based techniques to support one’s own intuitive healing process. I work alongside my clients to create collaborative approaches to their treatment planning and healing. I believe that the healing process is one that takes into consideration all aspects of one’s being in the world, whether it is mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and/or social parts of one’s self. I am open to discussing all aspects of this in sessions with my clients to help them decide that path is best for them. I gladly collaborate with other types of treatment providers. I utilize a harm-reduction approaching when exploring avenues with clients such as psychedelic integration work. I make efforts to be culturally competent and work as a provider who takes into account diversity and inclusion in my practice and pride myself on being open and willing to learn from my clients. I regularly attend continuing education opportunities to expand skills and gain knowledge in treatment modalities that can be helpful to those I work with.
