I work with people who feel emotionally overwhelmed towards building a vibrant and grounded relationship with their feelings.
Licensed Professional Counselor in CHICAGO, IL
I am a registered dance/movement therapist (R-DMT) and gained this certification through two and a half years of masters training, clinical practice, and supervision.
Depth therapies (Jungian, existential, and process-oriented approaches) have been a central part of my research for the past ten years, and I was fortunate to gain specialized training and supervision in these approaches through post-graduate training.
Working with gender and sexually diverse folx is a passion of mine. I've had the honor of working with my community through both group and individual therapy, using a sex-positive, queer-affirming approach.
As a trans/non-binary therapist, it is important to me to provide an open and non-judgmental space where people can explore and experience their gender. I also use my training as a body-based therapist to support the integration of gender identity into the movement and physical expression that feels natural and right for each individual I work with. I believe it's possible to access gender euphoria through exploring new ways of being in our bodies.
I have clinical experience working in inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings with people who have experienced complex trauma. My specialized training as a body-based therapist is a large part of how I help people regulate overwhelming emotions, heal the impact that trauma has on the nervous system, and reconnect mind and body.
