Licensed Professional Counselor

I believe in possibilities that come from agitation, the momentum of small shifts. Drawing on feminist, existential, critical, and liberation philosophies, I strive to offer resonance, deep listening, witnessing, invitations to question and redefine, and thoughtful skepticism towards status quos.

My Approach

Recognizing systemic influences shaping us can dismantle naturalized norms, challenge dominant scripts, invite de/re-construction, reveal the fragility of binaries and dichotomies, and expose the creation of iniquities. The purpose of therapy with me is not fixing or curing. In holding individual realities, I emphasize the larger contexts of history, distributions of power, social locations, intergenerational transmissions, economic systems, political policies that form feedback loops with our bodies, minds, selves, spirits, environments, and relationships.

My Background

My graduate degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University included a specialization in Somatic Psychology, which highlights the inter-relatedness of our physical, physiological, psychological, and social experiences. My undergraduate degree from Antioch College in Cultural Interdisciplinary Studies focused on gender and sexuality studies, stoking my feminist analysis, queer theoretical foundation, and critical consciousness. My formal and informal education has emphasized and explored historical, intergenerational, political, social, and interpersonal implications of societal structures and cultural contexts.
