I am taking new clients for telehealth appointments from Washington and Texas. I am a queer polyamorous ciswoman (she/her).
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Seattle, WA
I approach counseling from a Relational-Cultural perspective which is a feminist lens that focuses on developing a positive relationship between you and me to help support the client making positive changes in their life. This growth-fostering relationship can be used as a model to improve all other relationships in the client's life. I will be striving to create a positive connection with you and I will be encouraging you to assess your past relationships and how they may impact you now.
There are many hurdles for people who are trans*, such as exploring gender freely, without judgment, to seeking gender confirmation services. Beyond providing a safe space for trans folx, I am ready to write documentation to be used with other medical professionals to assert your readiness for any medical assistance with your transition that you might need.
Polyamory and other forms of non-monogamy are healthy and wonderful ways of engaging in relationships but it can be hard to find a counselor who is knowledgeable on non-monogamy and how it looks in the world. As someone who is polyamorous and is completing a dissertation on polyamorists, I excited to support you in your relationship orientation as it best fits for you.
