About My Clients

I work with people who are ready for change, who feel like they've tried everything, and don't believe that there's a place for them. I work with kids, adolescents, adults, and families to move toward connection and support.

My Background and Approach

I help kids (& their families) who long to be themselves, but are held back by believing they are "too much" or "not enough." Kids whose voices get buried under past hurts, worries, shame & anger. Kids who have tried everything (fighting, running away, hurting themselves, perfectionism) to get away from mean voices stuck in their heads--the ones saying, "you're not good enough," "no one would believe you," "you're too loud/sensitive/not tough enough." Kids and families work with me to fight the voices of "too much" and "not enough." They learn to talk about what's wrong, calm themselves, and open up instead of shutting down. We'll transform loneliness into mattering, uncertainty into safety, shame into acceptance, hopelessness into possibility.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My life has taught me that when feel heard, we can change the world. I've seen this transform families facing unimaginable pain in the past 14 years. More than "feeling better," you deserve relationships that support your true self. My passion is building these connections. My work is centered in a liberation and equity framework, drawing on intersectional feminisms, queer theory, and critical race theory. I'm a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. My work is rooted in honoring the wisdom and leadership of survivors of interpersonal and systemic-level trauma, including exposure to multiple systems of oppression (e.g.-white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, etc.). Individual therapy helps us stay centered in the work of liberation, but it's not enough. I also believe in working for community and individual wholeness to eradicate these sources of trauma and oppression.
