My Approach to Helping

I work with young people between the ages of 5-24 and their families from a primarily relational, psychodynamic perspective. As a clinical social worker, I balance my attention to the individual therapeutic relationship with reflection and analysis about systems/power, informed by critical race, feminist, queer, and liberation-centered theories. When it is helpful and desired, I am also able to draw from and integrate a variety of other modalities as needed, including experiential or values-centered practices (e.g. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy), more cognitive-behavioral interventions, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and skills-oriented philosophies, such as Collaborative Problem Solving. I believe the heart of my work lies in discovering ways to restore and honor your curiosity, creativity, and liveliness.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I provide integrative, relationally focused psychotherapy to children, teens, and young adults, with specialized experience supporting neurodivergent and queer youth, trans and non-binary children and youth, and young people with experiences of trauma.

  • Parenting External link

    I work with parents and caregivers as part of family therapy services or as a component of therapy for kids and teens. I specialize in Collaborative Problem Solving and similar approaches that center connection, support, and mutual growth and de-center emphasis on behavioral control. My practice is heavily influenced by transformative justice and abolitionist models of accountability.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I am a queer n.b. provider who offers LGBTQIA+ affirming care, and can help create space to honor the nuance, turmoil, confusion, and expansive joy that can come with holding one or many of these identities. I can support clients in recognizing, resisting, and responding to effects of heterosexism, cis-sexism, misogyny and support families and other natural supports in being effective advocates.
