licensed professional counselor - intern

supervised by rachel Meltzer, lpc-s

“I am passionate about intersectionality and all the awesome layers that make us who we are. I honor and affirm the identities that are important to my clients (religion, culture, nationality, race, gender, sexuality, etc.) and use it as needed in the healing process. It is imperative to me to work through that lens as a strengths-based and client-centered counselor, who takes a holistic and relational approach. We are all dealt a special hand that shapes how we experience the world and how the world sees us. But I believe that each of us inherently possess the knowledge inside ourselves to heal, grow, overcome, and develop a meaningful life, no matter the external or internal adversity. My ultimate goal as a counselor is to empower!”
