Relationships are important, whatever form they come in. We are wired for connection. In relationships, we can find love, support, kindness, and safety. Challenges may arise when there are shifts in our relationships, such as a negotiation of new terms, dynamics, or expectations. With some support, conflict can be an opportunity for closeness and healing.
Our identities can have a major impact on our experience in the world. I value using an intersectional lens to foster a safe and affirming space. I value transparency around sharing my own identities, including: queer, cisgender, femme, white, parent, and wife. I am open to discussing how these identities might interact with yours and influence the therapeutic relationship.
