About My Clients

Do you carry a marginalized or multiple marginalized identities? You're Black, Indigenous, or a person of color. You're queer. Maybe you've been to multiple therapists that don't get you. Maybe you don't know how to reconcile seemingly conflicting parts of your identity and don't have a space to process what seem like overwhelming emotions. Maybe you're stressed and confused by a life transition or problems in your relationships. You are not alone and you deserve a space to process your feelings

My Background and Approach

I practice from a place that is non-pathological, culturally-informed, and radically compassionate. I am a LGBTQ+ affirming therapist and have experience in providing space for people to explore complex parts of their lives. Together, we will challenge the messages that keep you from moving forward and find a new way forward that works for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I reject the idea that having mental health issues is a sign of individualistic shortcomings. I believe that often, our mental health struggles in part, come from living in a society that isn’t conducive to mental wellbeing. Issues pertaining to varying parts of our identity, like sexual orientation, gender identity, race, class, (dis)abilities, religion, etc. and how society interacts with these intersecting identities can further exacerbate mental health issues and worsen pre-existing symptoms. I believe that it is vital to have a therapist who is deeply aware and attuned to how systemic issues affect one’s mental health and wellbeing. I aim to provide a space that is affirming, safe, and culturally responsive. I am dedicated to providing a space that helps you explore your intersecting identities in a way that empowers you to find liberation from narratives that other and shame you.
