About My Clients

Our world encourages disconnection from our bodies and thrives on us not taking time and space to heal ourselves. There is not always time for deep healing work, but it is crucial to identify when that is needed. I am looking to work with folx who are looking to do that work in a personalized and integrated way. Our bodies store so much information for us, I strive to support clients with unlocking and utilizing that information to deepen their understanding and knowledge of themselves.

My Background and Approach

As a white, queer, non-binary, AFAB, Fat person, understanding my own privileged and marginalized identities was a crucial first step in doing this work. I firmly believe that a healer of any modality can only take you as far on your journey as they themselves are willing to go, and I strive to support folx in going wherever it is they need to go. I meet each client where they are at when entering treatment and design directives that specifically suit their lived experiences and therapeutic goals. I do not limit nor define clients by their diagnoses nor individually held social identities, for we are all a symphony of all of these identities as they intersect with our own lived experiences, and that needs to be embraced to do this type of radical work. I believe that therapy is for everyone and remain open to working with folx from all lived experiences. Interested? Contact me for a free consultation today!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer and non-binary person, I have a strong passion for serving the LGBTQIA+ community and providing affirming care specifically for TGNC (trans and gender non conforming) folx. That said I have worked with adolescents and adults with a wide array of identities and ages, who have experiences body dysmorphia, dysphoria, and dissatisfaction. In addition to my private practice work, I work with houseless LGBTQIA+ youth at the Ali Forney Center. I also want to specifically state my desire to work with and radically support folx who identify as fat or who are large bodied. This is a marginalized identity so deeply rooted in shame, that folx who identify this way often do not do so proudly. That makes finding community, processing your feelings, and seeking specialized medical and mental health care extremely complicated. If you are living in a body that you have been made to feel is wrong for any reason that is a tremendous weight to hold by yourself. You, yes YOU, deserve care.
