About My Clients
I have experience working with many clients who express themselves creatively through art, dance, music and acting. I specialize in working affirmatively and sex-positively with LGBTQIA+ people exploring their sexuality, gender, and relationship-expansive (kink, poly, CNM) intersectional identities. I am passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ people navigating parenthood, with a special interest in supporting non-gestational/non-biological and trans/non-binary parents.
My Background and Approach
My educational background combines degrees in psychology and fine art that informs my work with individuals and couples from all walks of life. In my approach to therapy, it is my goal to co-create an attuned, safe, and collaborative relationship. Where we go in your therapeutic journey centers around your goals and individuality, honoring the diversity of all your intersectional identities. Together, we can explore problem narratives, relationship patterns, oppressions/normativity that may impact you, and mind-body connections with warmth, curiosity, and compassion. My hope is to accompany you through the [re]discovery of your inherent resilience to pursue growth that enables you to live authentically and explore new possibilities.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I work from a framework inclusive of all and anti-oppressive, queer-affirming, trans-affirming, neurodivergent-affirming, poly, kink, and ace-spectrum-affirming. As an LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapist and parent, I am passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ folks navigating parenthood. Navigating parenting as a queer parent is full of joy and unique challenges. For many non-bio/non-gestational parents, non-binary, and trans parents, their experience presents additional challenging layers that may include feeling invisible, othered, and dealing with microaggressions. Many LGBTQIA+ parents face navigating this stage, encountering a void of support addressing their nuanced experiences. I aim to help fill this void by providing awareness and resources for clients and fellow therapists working with LGBTQIA+ parents.
