ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES THAT INFORM MY PRACTICE

  • Healing happens in the context of the collective and through connection

  • You have to want and be ready for this type of work

  • Intergenerational beliefs/patterns/trauma response are not fixed and can change

  • It’s important to tolerate difference and discomfort without judgment

  • Historical and cultural context matters - I practice from a anti-Black racism, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed lens


VALUES + BELIEFS THAT ANCHOR MY ROLE AS A THERAPIST

  • EMPATHY: understanding my own story and doing my own inner work is key in helping others do their work

  • HUMILITY: I will make mistakes and say the wrong things sometimes - focus on repair over ego

  • AUTHENTICITY: I bring my own self into the therapy room and have healthy boundaries

  • ALIGNMENT: I will not be the right fit for everyone - that doesn’t mean I’m a failure

  • HONESTY: It’s not my job to fix people or situations

  • INTUITION: Intuition over technique. Always.
