I am a masters student of clinical social work at Cleveland State University. As a social worker, I center my clients and their challenges within their environment and context. Together we work to improve capacities for thriving and meeting life’s challenges with self-compassion. I support my clients in strengthening internal resources and external support to find a greater sense of self-efficacy, self-knowledge, community connection, and agency.
I am passionate about community care, social justice, and reducing power imbalances in therapy and in society. Some areas of interest include LGBT+ identity and experience, particularly gender exploration; burnout and stress management; improving relationships with self and others; as well as exploring issues related to biracial and BIPOC identity and experience.
