About My Clients

You deserve to be a priority in your own life. Often times our efforts to belong or care for others leads us into self-neglect. Most of my clients have a history of surviving trauma, oppression, and self-critical narratives; their resulting survival strategies can sometimes outlast their usefulness. We can work together to restore your sense of self and your ability to direct your life on your terms to achieve your goals!

My Background and Approach

You know your experience better than anyone. I provide a safe, curious, and empowering space for you to take what you know and try out new ways of approaching your strengths and struggles. I’ll meet you where you're at as we build the skills you’ll need to face topics which might feel scary or heavy. You'll gain new ideas and alternative ways of tackling difficulties while increasing your confidence and your access to your own personal wisdom and insight. I integrate attachment theory, existential-phenomenological counseling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, narrative therapy, and Internal Family Systems into my approach. While these inform my practice, I rely most on being engaged with your actual experience and the circumstances of your life. Counseling is a relational experience and so we will create together a space to safely and creatively work with the issues most present.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we are always in a state of becoming, that our histories don't define us but support us, and that we are capable of directing the course of our lives even amidst the obstacles present in our world. As a queer therapist and liberationist, I actively support, professionally and personally, the abolishment of oppressive systems. Ways that I support these efforts include providing free access to assessment and letter writing required by insurance companies for trans and gender expansive folks to receive gender affirming medical care; making regular contributions to grassroots organizations advocating for racial equity, environmental protection, disability access, and other areas of social/political change; and being open and authentic about my beliefs. These issues/topics may or may not be explicitly focused on in our work together but the impact of internalized, systemic, and endemic forms of oppression on your life and choices will likely be at least a part of the discussion.
