My Ideal Client

I tend to work best with clients who: want to work towards being flexible and understanding what pushes them into rigidity, open to being challenged, open to or interested in going deeper, is or wants to be curious, appreciates humor in your healing work, likes an anti-capitalist, anti-racist, transformative justice framework, looking to collaborate on your journey, is seeking empathetic and intuitive therapy.

My Approach to Helping

A trauma-informed, anti-racist, kink-positive, sex worker positive, nonbinary trans, queer, white person. I’m not interested in dogma or any one way of doing things. I am a container-holder, a healing presence, a witness for personal growth, a coach to challenge you, a space-maker, and a spark of community and connection. I offer an empathetic presence to work alongside you in raising awareness of areas for growth, liberation, and acceptance within you. Therapy is a radical act that is intergenerational and reverberate across communities. I see my practice as a molecule in the vast ecosystem of collective change. I have an eclectic approach that relies heavily on attachment theory. I pull interventions from experiential therapies, internal family systems, body-centered somatic practices, mindfulness, sex therapy, and motivational interviewing.

My Values as a Therapist

You are the best expert in how you experience the world and I am committed to learning. I welcome all identities, backgrounds, and relationship configurations. I believe in continuously learning and integrating anti-racist practices, cultural humility and curiosity, transformative justice, disability justice, and “health at every size” philosophy. My work is distinguished by my passion about identity, sexuality and relational work as well as grief, trauma, and Self work in many forms (worth, esteem, compassion, growth, loving, healing, etc.) I am systemically trained and understand that our context matters in the shaping of our problems and paths to healing. On a personal level, I continually work within myself and with the support of my community to dismantle the ways toxic oppressive systems (whiteness, misogyny, heteronormativity, and capitalism among others) invade our lives and disconnect us from one another.
