About My Clients
I have a particular interest in working with people who use drugs from a harm reduction perspective. Whether you are looking to achieve abstinence or shift your relationship to drug use, I am here to support you and respect your right to make informed decisions about your body and your health. Additionally, I am passionate about working with queer and trans folks, sex workers, people struggling with self-harm and suicidal ideation, and people doing social movement work.
My Background and Approach
I became drawn to the work of therapy after many years of working in social justice movements, and seeing how relationships hold the power and potential to change the world. As a therapist, I believe that you already have the tools and skills necessary to heal yourself, and our work in therapy together is to help you uncover them. I approach our work together from a radically affirming, anti-oppressive, and trauma-informed perspective. I believe that everyone deserves a space where they can be seen and understood as their full selves. I received my MSW from the University of Minnesota in 2020. I draw from a number of different theories and modalities to best meet the needs of my clients, including harm reduction, CBT/DBT, person-centered approach, liberation health, psychoanalytic theory, feminist theory, and relational-cultural theory.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that healing our relationships with one another is how we change the world. I try to bring this approach to my work outside of therapy, where I am involved in jail support and prisoner solidarity work, anti-oppressive social work organizing, and harm reduction and syringe service programs.
