I am a queer, non-binary feminist therapist specializing in working with trauma, body image, and identity.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Tacoma, WA
I work with trauma using feminist therapy, polyvagal theory, Lifespan Integration, and somatics. I believe that that PTSD worsens in response to a lack of connection to ourselves and others. I help clients to shift their relationship to their nervous system responses and to depathologize their response to overwhelming experiences.
I support clients in exploring their relationship to their body and the factors that have impeded this relationship, including gender, diet culture, and dissociation. I do not provide formal eating disorder treatment. I may refer you to an appropriate provider if your current situation requires medical monitoring.
I work with clients to understand their brain, develop coping strategies, and unlearn internalized shame about being neurodivergent. I am neutral on the subject of medication, and can support you in making the choice that is right for you.
