A bit about my approach to therapy

Andrea approaches her clinical work through a lens that is multicultural, feminist, systemic, and trauma informed - allowing for clients respective identities and lived experience within complex social systems to be reflected throughout the entire therapeutic process. Andrea utilizes a person-centered approach along with psychodynamic and CBT modalities tailored to the needs of each individual client.

What you can expect from our first session

Andrea works with clients facing challenges related to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, LGBT(Q) issues, trauma, and minority identities to increase awareness of self and identify (often within complex social systems), process and move through trauma to cultivate healing and fulfillment, improve emotional regulation and coping abilities, and to improve interpersonal functioning and quality of life.
