About My Clients

I work primarily with queer people and transfolks who come from immigrant families and navigate complex identities and experiences as a result. Most of the people I work with are coping with symptoms that have emerged in relationship to trauma.

My Background and Approach

I work collaboratively with clients, cultivating existing strengths and internal resources in order to foster relationships and life experiences that contribute to clients' recovery and wellbeing. When invited, and with respect, I’m honored to explore what makes clients who they are, and to support who they want to become. I believe that through therapy, we can author and re-author life stories and personal mythologies in order to bring self-supporting realities into existence. My approach is influenced by depth psychology, feminist, relational, collectivist, transformative justice, and somatic perspectives and practices. I additionally offer clients my hard skills in anti-oppression work, advocacy, narrative therapy, harm reduction, CBT, DBT, trauma-informed, and somatic therapies. I bring a lifetime of experience walking my talk in support of personal and community healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is political, and that mental health hinges on the sociopolitical context of people's lives. I have almost two decades of experience as an organizer in queer community and significant, self-taught exposure to postmodern, decolonial, feminist, and queer critical theories, which influence my work. I'm committed to transformative-justice-informed accountability practices in order to work in solidarity with people of color and others facing pervasive institutional and interpersonal marginalization.
