Therapy Style

I work from a systems perspective within a social justice framework. I aim to understand how each client's intersecting identities, relationships, and functioning within broader societal systems are impacting their current concerns. While underscoring the importance of the context of the client's concerns, I am also solution- and present-focused in order to help clients gain immediate and impactful skills they can use outside of and after their care at Octave.
