About My Clients

You may have realized that despite your best efforts you cannot get to the root of why certain patterns and behaviors repeat in your life, and you want help unraveling and exploring this. You may have experienced a trauma or crisis that has exhausted the tools you have available to you. You may need a safe place to be seen and witnessed as you explore your identity, your authentic self, and your path. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, I look forward to joining with you in this step.

My Background and Approach

I am a postgraduate Associate MFT with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. My training includes contemporary psychodynamic supervision as well as trauma-informed supervision. I specialize in LGBTQ-Affirmative psychotherapy, with focus on issues specific to transgender, lesbian, bisexual, and gay clients, as well as clients in non-traditional relationship models. I am a white cisgender queer woman, and I bring consciousness of these aspects of my identity into the therapeutic work.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In my personal and larger LGBTQ community I have seen how intersecting systems of oppression affect individual and community mental health. I’ve observed how the act of gathering together in ways designated for sharing of experience—whether artistic, social, or spiritual—can function as a tool for healing and connectedness. As someone who has seen the real-life capability of therapy to impact family systems and individuals, I know that when applied in a therapeutic context, insightful exploration and examination has the power to heal, and that bearing witness is key to the facilitation of this process. These deeply-held beliefs are what brought me to the practice of psychotherapy.
