My approach

My therapeutic style is warm, grounded and direct. I come from queer and liberation therapy perspectives to utilize Gestalt relational and somatic therapy, as well as psychodynamic, mindfulness, and EMDR therapies. I seek to be anti-racist, sex-positive, fat-positive, polyamory/non-monogamous/kink competent, and committed to non-pathologizing approaches.​

 

I work most often with people who have been pushed to the margins, including trans, non-binary and queer people, autistic and other neurodivergent people, and people who have survived traumatic events and relationships. I enjoy working with organizers, activists, and artists.

 

I tend to be a good fit for clients experiencing shame, despair, isolation and existential dread. As a trans woman myself, I have experienced both the harms of misguided psychotherapy and the healing that can come from a co-created and trusting therapeutic relationship.

A bit about therapy

As a therapist, I start from a space of curiosity for exploration and affirmation without judgement. I believe that every person has the capacity for healing and growth, and I see therapy as a tool for accessing that innate capacity, founded on a real relationship with each person I see in therapy. Many people I work with have experienced traumatic events and oppression from systems that target certain people for exclusion and violence. Despite the obstacles that can prevent us from experiencing connection, I believe that every person is capable and worthy of love and community.
