With so much going on around us and in us, our issues can feel consuming, mysterious, and unavoidable. Some days we may feel heavy, weighted down; others we may feel overwhelmed, or stuck. Life can appear tangled, and leave us feeling confused and disoriented. The space and time to rest, talk, and explore can make all the difference.
My Background and Approach
Audre Lorde wrote, “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives”. I believe and practice from this framework. We are relational beings connected to each other and society. At the intersections of ourselves and community, we may meet Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, and complex Relationships. Getting to know these Problems helps us to understand their origins and find solutions.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I value collaboration, feedback, and creativity. I value brave spaces for your stories. I value sex-positive/kink-positive, gender affirming, sexuality affirming, anti-racist ways of practicing. As a queer, mother, trans-racial adoptee, cis-woman of color, I have a personal understanding of being othered and the complexities of intersectionalities. From that awareness, I aim to deeply listen and respond to your own experiences.
