About My Clients

In addition to my named specialties above, I also enjoy working with people experiencing the following: Anxiety; Depression; Trauma; Pre-marital/Pre-engagement; Infertility & family planning; Pregnancy & postpartum; Life transitions; Structural oppression; Abuse; and Sexual & domestic violence. I have experience working with people who are either currently or formerly incarcerated and would be happy to help you with the transition of a loved one from the prison industrial complex back home.

My Background and Approach

I approach my work with clients, couples, and families in a therapeutic context from a narrative, trauma-informed, sex-positive, body-positive and attachment-based perspective. I am currently seeking training and certification in the Gottman Method, Attachment-Based Family Therapy, and Health at Every Size curriculum. I have completed training in the following modalities and will use the tools from these modalities in our work together: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Motivational Interviewing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that nothing is apolitical and it is important for you to know where I stand on several issues. I am anti-racist and continue to work and learn from people of color to dismantle white supremacy. I believe no one is disposable. I am queer-affirming, and a member of the community myself as a hard femme. I am supportive of trans people and believe that you alone are the expert of your body, gender, and experience in the world as well as the treatments you need to live your most full and wholehearted life. I am an intersectional, trans-inclusive, feminist. I am body-positive and believe that weight is not a measure of health.
