My Ideal Client

You came here because you have a desire to deepen your relationship with yourself and others, you feel stuck in patterns you hope to change, are processing trauma, or are looking to reclaim lost parts of yourself. You have come to the right place. Working with adults with childhood trauma/complex trauma, couples/relational systems, chronic pain/illness, and queer/trans/non-binary individuals and relationships, I work collaboratively with clients to create spaces for care, depth, and connection.

How I Can Help You

I am a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Associate with a specialization in sexualities. I hold certifications and special training in Somatic Attachment Therapy and am a Certified Sexual Assault Survivor Advocate. I have a background in the creative arts, which has allowed me to think creatively with clients and explore artistic mediums in our work together. Being a person who is invisibly physically disabled and neurodivergent, I have a passion for working with folx struggling with chronic pain/chronic illness. I have both experience and specialization in working with, advocating for, and supporting queer individuals and relationships, trans and non-binary individuals and relationships, kink/BDSM, folx suffering from systemic marginalization, and PTSD/complex trauma. I have a special passion for supporting individuals navigating the medical system, be that people needing treatment for chronic pain/illness to folx seeking gender affirming care and surgery.

My Values as a Therapist

I think about mental health through a systemic lens - the understanding that we are all impacted by one another, the sociopolitical systems in which we live, and our social locations. Our bodies are also a system as is the Earth, plants, and animals we live among. The way we communicate within our own system, is a reflection of the way we communicate with other systems and vice versa. Through this lens, I center those impacted by systemic marginalization and emphasize social justice in my practice. I believe therapy can be a building block not only for you and your relationships, but for community change and liberation. I am invisibly physically disabled and neurodivergent, which fuels me toward naming and dismantling ableism on the systemic level. I am an active advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and have served as an advocate and educator teaching students and community members about topics such as systemic racism, the importance of sex-positive education, and trans rights.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Attachment Theory External link

    Everyone has strategies to get their needs met. Often times these once essential strategies become patterns in our life that keep us from connecting and turning toward one another. Attachment and emotion-focused therapy invites us to understand and build compassion for our old patterns, while building new, healthier strategies for connection by identifying our emotions and giving voice to our needs.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    Everything in life is a physical, mental, social, and spiritual experience. Yet, many of us are disconnected from our bodies. I believe that our bodies are vessels of wisdom from which we hold our experiences of pain, joy, belonging, intuition, and information. Through the process of slowing down and noticing, we can uncover a well of resources you already have within you, as well as heal from a foundational level. I am a Certified Somatic Attachment Therapist

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    We are made up of many parts that guide us, protect us, and walk along side us throughout our lives and relationships. Sometimes, these parts are loud while other important parts remain hidden, yet to be given an invitation to come out of the shadows and join us in our life journey. By engaging in inner child work, exploration of our parts, and promoting the Self, we can come closer to who we are, what we need, and how we access belonging in the intricacies of our internal and external world.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • PTSD External link

    For the last year, I have been working primarily with adults with childhood trauma and those who were rejected from their families and communities due to their sexual orientation and/or gender identities.

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    I personally deal with chronic pain/chronic illness and am invisibly physically disabled. Working with those who are impacted by ableist systems and helping them navigate the world in a way that promotes their wellbeing and helps them receive necessary, validating, informed care, is a special passion of mine.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I have specialized training in working with couples and relational systems. I particularly enjoy working with queer relationships. I have additional training in sexualities, kink/BDSM, polyamory, open relationships, and couples in transition.
