About My Clients
Let’s face it, sometimes being human is overwhelming, especially for the highly sensitive and neurodivergent. It can feel easier just to give up hope than be disappointed by people, institutions, or the collective at large again and again. It makes sense. How can you be expected to thrive in a world where you are told you’re “too much” or “not enough”? Of course you want to feel a greater sense of aliveness, freedom and belonging, but maybe you don't know where to start.
My Background and Approach
From my own lived experience, I deeply understand the distrust of any external 'authority' that doesn't support leading you back to your own wisdom. As a graduate of CIIS, my approach is deeply rooted in integrative, humanistic-existential and transpersonal psychology. I have been trained in and also offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. As a queer neurodivergent therapist, I have particular interest in working with ADHD, neurodivergent, highly sensitive individuals, as well as folks healing from narcissistic, spiritual and religious trauma.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a big believer in shifting mental health from a pathologizing paradigm to a neurodiversity paradigm, which embraces strengths within the infinite possible variations of human functioning. That is to say that 'differently wired' folks deserve spaces that meet us where we are at, rather than expecting us to 'fit in' to a world not necessarily made for us. I am deeply committed to changing the narrative of what it means to be neurodivergent and emphasize the importance of creating a life where the strengths of my clients shine.
