How I Work With Students

I take a collaborative and relational approach in which I strive to provide a safe space so that students feel free to focus on goals that are important to them. I value developing relationships in which diversity and a person's identities and the intersection of their identities are valued and validated. I believe that we all have strengths and find it helpful to find ways to utilize our strengths in times of difficulty. The overall goal of empowerment is at the core of my approach.
