Hi! I'm Gabby. I am a feminist and a challenger to all systems of oppression. Let's talk about how systems of oppression impact you!
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Chicago, IL
Let's talk about heteronormativity and cisgenderism and how that impacts you and your relationships! Do you feel like the only models you had for relationships were cis het people? Let's explore opportunities for you to create your own narrative.
As a feminist, and a woman, I am aware of the impact that the patriarchy has on cis women and gender nonconforming folks and am well-prepared to have these conversations with you. Some of the ways the patriarchy impacts us are overt and obvious, others are covert and subtle. Let's talk about it!
As someone who has experienced this myself, I recognize the pervasiveness with which sexual trauma impacts folks. I take a trauma-informed approach and allow you to choose where we go and at what pace. Let me hold some of it, so you don't have to.
With my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy and being half-way through a PhD in Couple and Family Therapy, Family Systems is the air I breathe. None of us exist in a vacuum, and systemic (family) therapy allows you to identify the different systems you interact with and see the influences.
I'm working through training to be Gottman Levels I & II certified. While I practice Feminist Family Therapy, I use Gottman interventions to aid in helping you be an effective communicator.
Feminist Family Therapy is my bread and butter approach. I've taught classes on Feminist Family Therapy because it's what I know and do best.
