About My Clients

You might be feeling stuck in your relationships. You’re struggling to be vulnerable and fully present with not only loved ones, but with yourself. You’re falling into a repetitive cycle that leaves you feeling exhausted, frustrated, and alone. You’re ready to dig into your attachment history and start breaking down the shields that used to protect you, but are now a barrier to vulnerability. You know it's time to do the deep work and cultivate the self-acceptance and relationships you long for.

My Background and Approach

My work as a therapist is attachment based and experiential. We explore attachments with the belief that our past shapes our present. We are looking to better understand how our past experiences contribute to our core beliefs of who we are today and how that impacts the way we connect with our partners. In other words, we are digging fucking deep. I help you explore attachment wounds to better understand what the fuck is going wrong and whats keeping you from hearing each other and feeling safe and validated.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work through an LGBTQ+ and neurodivergent affirming lens. We often get told there is something “wrong” with us or that our identities are something to be “fixed”. I’m here to say, fuck that. We deserve to see our identities as something to be accepted and celebrated. I know this takes work. We live in a world where neuroqueer folks are marginalized, leading us to really struggle with self-acceptance and love. We experience rejection on many levels. Of course, this shows up in our relationships. Rejection fucking hurts, so we create a shield. This shield protects, but sometimes blocks our partners from really seeing us. I help by guiding you to a place where it feels safe to be seen, where you know you’ll be held and comforted as you take that risk.
