About My Clients

I do my best work with creative and open-hearted individual adults who are dedicated to exploring their inner experience and moving towards greater self-awareness. Usually these folks struggle with anxiety, past family & personal trauma, sadness, creative blocks and difficult life transitions. My goal is to create a supportive, non-judgmental space for reflection and change. I believe in a shame-free, co-created relationship where warmth, empathy and humor are not only valued, but encouraged.

My Background and Approach

My background is feminist and strength-based, and grounded in the idea that therapy is at its best when the therapeutic relationship is strong. I am informed by Gestalt, mindfulness and psychodynamic principles. This means I work with you in the present moment to explore different ways that you can connect with yourself without judgement, as well as exploring the history and relationships that have impacted your life. This can also include paying attention to the stories and thoughts running through your mind or what your body may be trying to say. I honor your individuality and your unique way of connecting to the world, while taking into consideration the influences of personal history as well as the larger political and societal contexts, including the impact of patriarchy, white supremacy, capitalism and the current state of our political and cultural environment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a sex positive therapist who is LGBTQIA+ and non-binary affirmative. I love working with people in relationship minorities including the polyamorous communities, as well as folks in the sex industry. Also, as a white therapist, I am dedicated to my own anti-racist work and the interrogation of a white supremacist, capitalist system.
