About My Clients

It is possible to simultaneously feel like always too much and never enough. My clients are the adults who were labeled gifted as children and feel like they'll never live up to their potential, the overachievers who don't feel fulfilled, and the "awkward ducks" who always feel like they're missing the memo. I enjoy working with parents trying to recapture or hold onto their identity, those navigating the rollercoaster of pregnancy or infertility, and adults with ADHD.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is strength-based, which means that I do not believe that my clients are broken. On the contrary, I believe that my clients of full of strengths, and that my job is to help you identify and build on those strengths in order to overcome your challenges. I also practice from a perspective that is feminist-oriented, queer and trans affirming, anti-racist, body positive, and grounded in principles of social justice. When therapists focus on how *you* need to change without acknowledging the broken systems that surround us, they do clients a disservice. Conversely, I approach therapy with the assumption that you are doing the best you can in a world that creates barriers for anyone who is a member of a marginalized community. Self-care is more than bubble baths and pedicures; sometimes, self-care is allowing yourself to get very fucking angry at society. And sometimes resistance looks like loving and being kind to yourself in the face of that adversity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

A guiding principle of the work that I do is that there are infinite right ways to live a life. If you’re not harming anyone and you feel good on the inside, you’re probably doing okay! I also believe strongly that laughter is a core healing facet of therapy, cussing is a form of self-expression and self-care, feelings really fucking matter and all feelings are allowed, allowing anger is a gateway to real change, sensitivity is an asset (not a character flaw), connection is why we’re all here, needing people is human, and you are enough.
