About My Clients

Clients come to me feeling like they don’t fit fully in their lives. Oftentimes they are so focused on being there for others, that there’s no time and space for themselves. They’re depleted—from work, care-giving, or their personal relationships. They may be trying to do everything right, and then wind up feeling empty and drained at the end of the day. Something inside them (and maybe inside of you) knows that this isn’t working, and that there must be another way. And there is.

My Approach to Helping

I believe it’s possible to find balance between giving and taking, and between caring for what’s outside of yourself and what’s inside. Together, we help you start pouring from a more consistently full cup. We’ll tend to any distress that your current way of living has been causing or exacerbating—such as anxiety, fear of abandonment, PTSD symptoms, unkind thoughts towards yourself, or just not thinking about yourself at all. This will involve a 3-fold approach. 1) Learning specific skills and tools to notice that you need care, and then identifying what kind of care you need. 2) Increasing your awareness of the root causes of this pattern—which may be due to childhood experiences, internalized oppression or capitalism, or having marginalized identities. 3) Developing a strong therapeutic alliance between us that supports your new understanding of yourself—that you are of value, deserve care, and deeply matter. If there's room for your desires, needs, and joy, what could that be like?

Why I am a Good Fit for You

You know that while healing and growth can be *hard*, it’s worth it and you’re ready to do that work. I’m queer affirming, trans affirming, sex-positive, and kink and polyam affirming. It’s important to me to honor the cultural identities of my clients—age, race, religion, class, nationality, gender, ethnicity, ability—and to empower them to leverage cultural strengths in our work towards their goals. Therapy isn’t about pathologizing you. Instead, we’ll explore how your growing-up experience, internalized oppression, capitalism, and marginalization have tricked you into misunderstanding your worth. We will develop specific practices to help you shrink the impact of unhelpful messages you’ve absorbed throughout your life. Some clients and I do only online sessions. With others, we meet outdoors for nature-based, experiential therapy sessions, rain or shine (unless dangerous). Reach out.
