Queer, kinky, immigrant with speciality working with those with severe and chronic mental illnesses in CA and WA
Clinical Social Worker in Olympia, WA
I specialize in working with those who have both positive and negative symptoms. I am educated in psychotropic medication management and am available to advocate for proper care.
I believe that anger is an expression of underlying unmet needs. Let’s work together to help you gain the skills to emotionally regulate intense emotions and strengthen your communication with your loved ones.
If you’re trans, queer, or still trying to find yourself, we can work together on your journey.
I hold a very soft spot in my heart for those who experience psychosis and schizophrenia. Chronic hospitalizations and the impact of institutionalization is harmful. Learning to manage symptoms, strengthening self-advocacy and autonomy, having unconditional support, along with harm reduction methods are crucial in preventing recidivism. I am also available for supportive case management and coordination of care with outpatient providers.
In my experience, folks with personality disorders receive poor care due to the stigma associated with the diagnosis. You deserve the same unconditional care that others receive. I am certified in DBT and can support those seeking support with mindfulness (if that's your thing), distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills.
