What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?
My approach to therapy is interactive and collaborative. I have a strong commitment to integrating a social justice and anti-oppression focus into psychotherapy. This means exploring, when relevant, the impact that racism, sexism, classism, able-ism, homophobia and other experiences of oppression based on social group membership may have had in your life (and the intersections of those areas of systemic oppression). I also rely on a strengths based approach, recognizing that each of those group memberships may be sources of strength, resilience, and community.
