Not Accepting Clients

As a psychotherapist, I recognize the intersectionality of the identities that we hold and its impact on how we move through the world.

About My Clients

I specialize in working with folks who have experienced trauma, with a focus on religious and sexual trauma; as well as individuals exploring their gender identity and sexuality. Working from a trauma-informed perspective, I also work with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, and burnout.

My Background and Approach

Body neutrality, Health At Every Size (HAES), and sex positivity are core values of my clinical practice. Using an eclectic approach, I work with clients to develop clarity and self-acceptance around sexuality and gender identity, learn to feel safe and grounded through trauma triggers, and develop a deeper sense of self-compassion. I take an integrative approach to therapy based on client needs. I incorporate aspects of ACT, Narrative Therapy, and mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My work is rooted in affirming the experiences of individuals who identify as queer, transgender/GNC, sex workers, non-monogamous/polyamorous, and disabled. As a white queer woman, I am committed to challenging systems of oppression and rejecting internalized white supremacy; both in my own life and as part of my work with clients. If you resonate with what I have shared and think we could be a good match to work together please feel free to reach out for a brief consultation.
