About My Clients

I am passionate about working with people between the ages 18-29 who are feeling anxious and uncertain about their path in life. I love working with care-workers and deep empathizers who feel burned out, stretched too far and unable to find balance. I enjoy supporting people struggling with anxiety and stress in listening to and prioritizing the wisdom of their needs. I love joining with folx in the LGBTQIA+ community in confronting complex issues and offering a refuge to experience more ease.

My Background and Approach

As a queer-identified, able-bodied and cis-gendered woman with class and race privilege, I prioritize naming how social locations shape the ways we move and show up in our lives. Together we can go deeper, demystifying and getting at the roots of abusive systems (institutions/values/behaviors) towards acting on empowering stances. In collaboration, we will honor how you have gotten to this moment. The way I integrate my somatic orientation into our work will reflect our unique connection. I may ask you to bring your attention to a movement or gesture or invite you to be curious about a sensation or feeling you’re having in the moment. My approach is a mosaic of practices, studies and models reflecting my ever-evolving perspective on how healing happens. Specifically, my practice is informed by Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems therapy, attachment theory, Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, mindfulness and theories and methods of Ethnic and Women's Studies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I want to be a part of healing the wounds caused by power-over systems. How can we build the world we envision when we keep hurting ourselves and each other? Tragically, we often don't know how to recognize our wounds as wounds, let alone begin healing them. For over 20 years, I've dreamed of and worked towards creating a practices of care, compassion and creativity, with the intent of shifting relationships from power-over to power-with. For me, therapy is a space of shared radical creation and renewal. Each relationship is entirely unique and wholeheartedly cherished. My intersectional approach to both social justice and healing reflects my insistence on centering sincere interconnectedness.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
