About My Clients

You’re here because you have been misdiagnosed, dismissed, gaslighted, and/or harmed by the medical establishment. You've been told "it's all in your head" or "you don't look sick." People may have blamed you for being sick—but if anyone tells you that you’re making yourself sick, that person doesn’t deserve another second of your time. It’s not your fault. You don’t need to improve your attitude. You don’t need to “love and light” yourself to a cure. You need someone who will actually listen.

My Background and Approach

You need someone who understands that sometimes it takes all your spoons just to get out of bed—and this does not mean you are weak or lazy. The clients I love to work with have conditions like type 1 diabetes, cerebral palsy, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), multiple sclerosis (MS); I know that you are not going to "get well soon." I may not know exactly what it’s like to live with your specific diagnosis, but I know what it’s like to live with chronic illness and pain. I know what it’s like to be gaslighted by doctors. I know that icky feeling you get just being at the doctor’s office, because what will it be like this time? If you’re looking for someone to help you “stop being so negative and just think more positive,” I am not the therapist for you. But if you want to see how systemic oppression is harming you and why how you feel makes sense, we just might be a great fit.
