About My Clients

Are you feeling stuck in your gender journey? Are you wanting more gender justice and gender joy? Whether you're curious about gender exploration or ready to explore the next steps of your social or medical transition (what ever that looks like for you), we’re here to help! We take an intersectional approach and value your various cultural identities from a liberation-centered & anti-racist framework. We're here to help you break down barriers, heal in community & find joy!

My Background and Approach

At the Center for Collaborative Transformations, we provide queer and trans-affirming therapy, rooted in anti-racism, liberation, and radical healing. We work collaboratively with clients, families, and care teams to develop meaningful acceptance, change, growth with our clients. We create space for gender exploration and experimentation while also supporting healing from ongoing oppressive trauma. We're here to explore radical hope, envision possibilities, and join you in your journey toward more gender justice & gender joy!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we have the capacity to create positive, healing, and joyful change for ourselves and for our communities! We live at the intersections of various oppressive forces that affect our physical and mental health, but we also have the capacity to push back against the systems that keep us feeling stuck. We are resilient and have the capacity for radical healing, growth, and change! When I first came out to myself as queer, and then as nonbinary and transgender, I felt lost, uncertain, and stuck. As I found supportive and affirming communities, I began to feel more confident, sure of myself, and joyful in my gender identity and expression. We’re here to help you process the past, live in the present, and transform your future.
