I’m fat, I’m queer, I have an intersectional lens, and I want to dismantle systems of oppression one client session at a time.
Clinical Social Worker in ,
I've been working with LGBTQ+ folks since the start of my career. I have significant training and experience. I value the opportunity to work with my community.
As part of my specialization in LGBTQ+ folks I've worked with many folks of diverse genders. I'm experienced working with folks questioning their gender, exploring medical transition, and folks just living their lives as trans folks. I have particular experience with teens and young adults with diverse genders.
I am a fat liberationist which has meant significant client work and training on issues around bodies and how we can all come to love our own bodies.
I have training and experience using narrative therapy. I particularly use externalizing techniques and work on finding unique outcomes.
I am trained in and use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping) as a method to help clients de-escalate and to manage strong feelings and emotions.
ACT greatly informs my practice. I have significant experience and training. My most basic practice orientation is ACT based.
