Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have extensive training and clinical experience in practicing Narrative and Post Modern Therapy, which focus on the meaning in which one constructs one's life, the stories that influenced these constructions, and the socio-cultural-political forces that help shape our identities. This is a strength-based, meaning-based, and active approach that lay the foundation for living in empowering ways and weaving the threads of agentive possibilities. I have had experience working with folks from all walks of life with a wide range of concerns, and have been humbled by people's unwavering resiliency in the face of adversity. I center my work around tapping into the uniqueness and competencies of individuals, by collaborating and walking alongside of their hopes and dreams, as well as developing steady grounds to stand on in the midst of turmoil. There is great respect given to each person's struggles and diverse backgrounds, and an aspiration to discover and sustain values and wisdom based on one's lived experiences. In therapeutic conversations, I strive to be warm, compassionate, and nonjudgmental.
