My therapeutic work is client-centered using a combination of systemic, structural and relational approaches.  I have a strong interest in working with individuals, couples, families; and trauma focused evidence-based practices.  Scholarly pursuits include arts based interventions; harm reduction approach to addiction recovery; systemic racism as trauma; and liberation-based healing practices.

Available now for coaching and clinical therapeutic work in the fall of 2017. Contact me.
