As a white cis-passing mostly able-bodied person with socioeconomic privilege, I recognize and take seriously the vast power and privileges my identities hold. As a trauma survivor of gender-based violence and queer person, I know the devastation of systemic oppression. I actively work to dismantle oppressive structures in and out of the therapy setting. I believe all people deserve justice and to live with dignity, safety, and freedom from oppression. I'm passionate about justice in mental healthcare, which has historically been harmful to people of color, neurodivergent folks, people with disabilities, and trauma survivors. I work from a systemic, anti-oppression, feminist lens and speak candidly to the trauma of racism, poverty, marginalization, sexism, and ableism. I work collaboratively with clients to create a felt sense of safety in the therapeutic relationship. I believe all clients have the right to an affirming therapist with shared identities (if that feels best for them).
