I am a feminist counselor who operates from an integrative and holistic counseling model. This means that I pull from multiple evidence-based modalities to provide the individualized treatment that is best suited to each client. The modalities and techniques I utilize most include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief-Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness, Narrative, and Existential. I can also be described as a Rogerian, person-centered therapist that regards each client as the expert in their own lives. I see my role as being a wellness partner that shows unconditional positive regard, never allowing judgement to cloud therapeutic work.
In my work with clients, I focus not only on mental and emotional issues but recognize the intricate and inextricable connection between mind, body, and spirit. Therapy starts with a comprehensive mental and physical assessment that illuminates the connection between our emotional and physical health. Interventions often include a mix of psychotherapy and integrative health and nutrition coaching to help clients achieve wholistic wellness.

"As therapists, we are in the business of freedom--we help people relinquish stories of self that are painful, stories of this moment that are alienating, stories of the future that are limiting." - Ili Rivera Walter
