About My Clients

I work with adults (18+) with a wide range of intersecting identities. I specialize in working with grief, trauma, and self-esteem, but people seek my help for all kinds of struggles.

My Background and Approach

Our struggles are messengers. If we know how to listen, they can teach us about our deepest needs. Our struggles also bring wisdom about lost or disowned parts of ourselves that are searching for a way home, and the risks we may each need to take in order to feel more alive. Greeting these messengers with compassion and curiosity can loosen rigid patterns and storylines, setting us free. And even when it’s not possible to undo the source of pain, as in cases of trauma, it’s still possible to learn an entirely new way to dance with what hurts – and to commit to inviting joy, flexibility, and fullness in. My approach offers a collaborative, safe space where you will be supported to learn to listen to your pain in a way that brings you into more fulfilling connection with yourself, your relationships, and your world. I work to empower you to discover your own strength and set your own pace. See my website (in the yellow strip under my contact info below) for more details of my approach.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that, in the words of Vikki Reynolds, “a socially just world is a mentally well world.” My anti-oppressive framework attends to ways in which systems of oppression generate trauma and other health impacts. I am LGBTQIA+-affirming, poly-affirming, and kink-affirming. A body-positive/Health at Every Size philosophy informs my work.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
