About My Clients

My clients are adults and teens (12+) who are seeking growth and healing. I primarily work with queer and gender diverse folks who are on the verge of something new or working through something old in their lives, and are seeking extra support in moving through what is currently up for them.

My Background and Approach

I view each of our lives as a journey of discovery: of the self, the world around us, and all the experiences that move through us. We are learning how to be who we are, how to be human, and how to traverse the terrain ahead of us. The journey brings with it a full range, from ecstatic bliss and deep peace to agonizing shame and despair, and everything between. Each individual’s journey is unique, yet we share some overlapping themes and needs. Perhaps we are seeking support along our journey, for further growth, healing, or connection with our authentic self and others. Some parts of the journey are much more easily navigated than others, and even moments of growth that excite us can present unanticipated challenges, leaving us feeling discouraged. Sometimes the pain of healing past trauma is overwhelming and confusing and leads us to seek another’s support. However you have come to seek support, what is most important is that you have taken this step.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

With a kind, thoughtful, inquisitive approach, we can know ourselves better and make the changes that we desire for our lives. My intention is to offer this compassionate curiosity to support you in creating your most meaningful life. The unique support of a therapeutic relationship gives you the opportunity to focus entirely on yourself in this space of caring collaboration. My orientation is grounded in a relational, attachment and trauma-informed, psychodynamic approach, drawing on somatics, mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems frameworks. If you feel moved to reach out, I would look forward to connecting with you.
