About My Clients

I work with relationships & individuals going through transitions or feeling stuck. This may be something specific or very general, like a sense of aimlessness, a desire to explore one's self or relationship(s), or an ambiguous feeling that something isn't quite right. I specialize in working with marginalized communities, including LGBTQIA+, kink/BDSM, nonmonogamy, fat, interfaith & secular folks. I often work with creatives, academics, and professionals in law, tech, healthcare, and beyond.

My Background and Approach

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my clinical training is in seeing you as a person who is a part of many systems. That might include your family and relationships, but it also includes things like your cultural and religious backgrounds, your communities, and the institutions in which you are involved or which have been a part of your journey. This means that I am interested in meeting and working with you as a full, complicated person involved in many contexts to understand both your inner and external worlds and how you fit into them. My approach is psychodynamic and systemic. That means that I am concerned with both your inner and external worlds, how they have developed over - and even before - your lifetime, and how that shaping has impacted you in ways that are helpful or which may no longer be serving you well. That said, I do not believe that a one-size-fits-all approach works for therapy. Thus, my approach is flexible and integrative, individualized to fit your needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My clinical approach is integrative and flexible, but a few key values ground my work: first, I am oriented towards a feminist, secular, social justice framework. I am inclusive and affirming in my approach with my clients, and believe that exploring who we are requires the safety to show up fully as ourselves - or to learn how to do so - without fear of being too much, too big, not enough, etc, and to foster a sense of belonging. I work with people from all backgrounds and am committed to showing up for my clients to be wholly honest about who they are. Lastly, I am committed to maintaining a confidential and ethical clinical space. Unfortunately many of my clients have experienced ethical breaches in their previous care or in relationships with leaders. I am always working to ensure that my own work is focused on YOU and your needs, and on maintaining your confidentiality.
