About My Clients
They are amazing and resilient folks who sometimes can't prioritize their own needs. Their past is full of heartache, even from loved ones. Big things have happened. Maybe awhile ago, or maybe they are still happening. My clients come from the neurodivergent and LGBTQIA+ communities as well as those who have chronic illnesses. They carry heavy burdens and it's my honor to support these folks in a comfortable and welcoming space.
My Background and Approach
Your comfort is key! Down to earth and approachable is at my core. The heart of our struggles are often embedded in relationships, so I focus on relational healing. Sure, we'll talk (using Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectic Behavioral therapy techniques) but I will also offer EMDR and other techniques that focus on your unique experiences in life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
CONNECTION!! You gotta feel safe to learn, try new things and admit your struggles. At the core of my work is a recognition that trauma impacts all of us differently so I approach my clients with a sense of respect and curiosity so that we can learn together through the work. I recognize the goal of perfection as a tool of White Supremacy, and believe in embracing and learning from mistakes. In this spirit, I have a daily practice of unpacking my own biases and prejudices so I can better support those around me.
