About My Clients

If you have experienced trauma, chronic stress, or loss, you may wonder if the impact of events from the past will ever fade. You may have all the right pieces in place but still feel unhappy, worthless, lonely, lost, angry, or constantly stressed. Boundaries, feeling connected to others, or getting needs met in relationships or work may feel impossible. I am here to journey alongside you as you work through core issues and patterns and as you tap into your innate capacity to heal.

My Background and Approach

I can work with you to identify and practice the skills and habits to make your life more manageable while also bringing curiosity and attention to the deep-rooted issues that can prompt transformation. I have over seven years of experience in rape crisis response, domestic violence prevention, harm reduction, and therapy for trauma survivors and their families. My time in anti-violence and feminist organizations shows me the essential value of building an ethical and respectful collaboration that center each person's history, goals, culture, identities, pacing and self-determination. I draw from training in EMDR, somatics, mindfulness, DBT, family systems theory, group psychotherapy, with an underlying depth psychology orientation to make therapy as individual as you are. For helping professionals and creatives seeking to accelerate personal growth or optimize performance, I offer services to overcome blocks and build resilience.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all people deserve therapy that seeks to be free of judgment, stigma, and oppressive power dynamics. I believe people who experience marginalization and oppression deserve to have their target identities affirmed, valued, and respected. I believe that care can look like support and validation, and also like accountability, boundaries, and direct honesty. I strive to deliver both with care and consideration of supporting your greatest wellness. I am queer and trans, kink/BDSM, and non-monogamy affirming. I am committed to providing affirming and de-stigmatizing services for sex workers and offer training and consultation to providers striving to do the same.
