About My Clients

As we grow and develop as humans, we often find ourselves confronted by issues from the past – issues we may have thought long-resolved. These issues can manifest in our relationship dynamics, our perceptions about ourselves, and our means of coping with our environment. My role is to join you in confronting these things so that you can integrate and learn the lessons these past experiences are meant to teach you.

My Background and Approach

In my practice, which is still growing every day, I utilize a relational lens to examine how individuals carry their earliest experiences with them all their lives. However, I believe it is important to actively move away from a deterministic view of human development. I want to give you a safe space in which you can find and make meaning around your experiences at your own pace. I am also fundamentally a Queer therapist, and I believe that any problem can be understood by analyzing power dynamics and differentials, whether in an individual person, a family, a community, or a society. I have found that one of my gifts is in putting into words ideas that are difficult to articulate, as well as speaking, with gentleness and love, about things that are typically considered “unspeakable.” I am here to sit with you and your darkest thoughts and feelings, and to remind you, every step of the way, that you are worthy of love and care.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In my career, I have gotten to know clients who take great comfort from marking their progress in therapy through concrete tasks. They present as students of their own mind, eager for homework and readings and fascinated by the science of themselves. I have also known clients who approach their therapy on a gut-level, exploring themselves through the therapeutic relationship we build together. Every client is unique, and I believe that a good therapist can meet anyone where they’re at. I look forward to getting to know you!
