About My Clients

Tired of Educating Your Therapist on Your Gender and Sexuality? Do you feel like you've been trained to hide parts of yourself and conform to societal expectations? Have you lost sight of what you truly want after pleasing others for so long? Therapy should be a place to embrace and affirm your authenticity, not educate or conform to your therapist. If you're neurodivergent, struggling with anxiety or depression, or dealing with challenges related to your gender and sexual identities.

My Background and Approach

I have experience working with clients through a range of therapeutic modalities, including DBT, EMDR, Attachment Theory, and person-centered approaches. These techniques help clients to uncover and process emotions, build self-awareness, and achieve personal and emotional growth. With my specialized training and I am confident we can find your healing path.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I passionately believe that systemic oppression is rooted in cissexism, heterosexism, colonialism, ableism, sizeism, and white, male supremacy. These oppressive systems create cultures where those with marginalized identities experience Minority Stress, which can have a detrimental impact on their mental health. However, it's crucial to understand that the effects of Minority Stress are not pathological and should not be treated as such. As a firm believer in autonomy, I advocate for human beings' right to make decisions about their minds, bodies, and energy, including how they approach therapy. I acknowledge the significant rights and progress that the LGBTQIA+ community has made today- achievements that wouldn't exist without the undertakings of BIPOC trans women, including the inception of my practice. My goal is to provide a space for equity where all individuals, regardless of identity, can feel seen, heard, and supported.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
