About My Clients

Folks come to therapy with pain, uncertainty, and big questions. Who am I really? How do I have better relationships? What’s the point of life? Is something wrong with me? Where do I belong? Can I heal? I bring to sessions boundless curiosity, caring challenges, and commitment to building trust at your own pace, all while keeping the focus on you. I’m here to help you embrace the intricate beauty and messiness of who you are.

My Background and Approach

NOTE: I am private pay; I do not accept insurance. My approach to this work is existential, liberationist, and internal family systems informed. Liberationist therapy starts with knowing that much of your trauma stems from systemic oppression. Together we will explore how the many forms of discrimination affect your wellness and how you can begin to thrive. Working from an existential perspective involves attending to identity, agency, meaning-making, fulfillment, and suffering. The more you are connected to your whole self, the more you can connect to others in healthy ways. When you start to create your own meaning, you can find empowerment in living your story. IFS therapy welcomes all of you into the room. We have internal conflicts, coping strategies we’ve outgrown, deep hurts we’re carrying, strengths we haven't yet tapped. IFS offers a path to befriending and healing all of yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a therapist because I believe being in relationship with ourselves, each other, and the world is essential for our healing and well-being. I am a white, invisibly disabled, queer, trans man. I'm committed to liberation for everyone. My therapeutic work is grounded in social justice and a trauma-informed perspective. I believe that our bodily experience is as important as our psychological one and so bring somatic elements into my sessions. I am also aligned with kink and polyamory and firmly believe that everyone has a right to do what they choose with their own bodies. I bring a neurodiversity perspective to understanding your mental health challenges: I honor the way you function and what your needs are rather than seeking to help you change your behavior to fit social parameters. I operate from a cultural humility perspective when working with people of different racial, ethnic, or cultural backgrounds.
