Pushed me to understand my own roots and values and to always return to those.

Working with Savannah was exactly the next step I needed in my therapeutic journey. Her approach was beyond the traditional talk therapy, it pushed me to understand my own roots and values and to always return to those. Our sessions together were personal, engaging and inspiring. She balanced professionalism and making the sessions feel personal at the same time. Each session felt guided to what I needed in that day. Today, I continue to take the skills and self-development I gained with Savannah into my personal and professional life.

Championing cases and viewpoints that reflect her deep commitment to restorative justice

Savannah is a passionate and innovative clinician. She and I worked closely together supporting young people in foster care. Savannah can effortlessly exist in multiple disciplinary spaces. She often uses her voice for ally-ship and championing cases and viewpoints that reflect her deep commitment to restorative justice and respect for the self-determination of every human.
