Jade Dario, M.A. 

Doctoral Practicum Clinician

Pronouns: She/Her

Positionality:
I identify as a queer cisgender Latinx woman. I grew up in a bicultural household and identify as a first-generation Polish-Salvadorian-American.
 
My Background & Approach: 

I believe that each person holds infinite complexity in their identity and lived experiences. As a therapist, my goal is to join you in the process of uncovering that complexity and utilizing your self-knowledge so that you can experience greater empowerment, fulfillment, and joy in your life. My main focus in meeting with you will be to listen and understand, to build trust, and to provide an open and nonjudgmental space where anything that is important to you can be discussed.

 

With regards to my theoretical approach, I draw on relational-psychodynamic, social justice and feminist principles. As a relational psychodynamic therapist, I see our interpersonal functioning as crucial to our overall sense of well-being, and I view the therapeutic relationship as a powerful vehicle for change. During sessions, we may explore aspects such your feelings, desires, motivations, and ways of relating with others. However, I also believe that there is no “right way” for therapy to look and I strive to maintain flexibility and playfulness in my approach. As a multiculturally-grounded therapist, I believe that our experiences and our sense of well-being are shaped by the unique blend of privileged and marginalized identities that we each hold. My intention is to provide a space in which both our shared and differing aspects of personhood can be acknowledged, discussed openly, and appreciated.
