About My Clients

Whether I am working with an individual, a couple, a family, a group, or an organization, I believe that my clients are the best experts on their lives. I am committed to creating a sacred and non-judgmental environment where clients can honestly and courageously craft their personal goals and participate in their own transformation. I have found that I work best with folx who are motivated to self-explore and who are seeking healing shifts in their lives.

My Background and Approach

I use a combination of approaches in my therapeutic work including anti-oppression, feminist, and narrative frameworks. I rely deeply on systems theory and the understanding that individuals are products of and in dialogue with our surroundings, including our families, broader culture, workplaces, nature, and political climates. Along with my therapy degree, I also hold a masters degree in theological studies, and I incorporate conversations about spirutuality and spiritual direction into sessions as clients desire. I have extensive experience working with transgender clients and clients wanting to explore gender identity, along with letter-writing for gender affirming surgeries. I am also a trained circle facilitator and have offered trainings to healthcare professionals, counseling interns, and students regarding best practices when working with queer clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Deep connections sustain and heal the human spirit. When we are deeply connected to ourselves, our values, our story, and our inner workings, we can thrive. When we are genuinely connected to others, to family, and to community, we can flourish. Often, however, disconnection and fracture prevent the kind of thriving that might be possible. Through my therapeutic approach, I aim to work collaboratively with clients to explore both areas of disconnection and suffering, as well as opportunities for re-connection, for the deepening of current connections, and for lasting change. So, I invite you forward. I invite you into the depths of connection. I invite you to envision new worlds, new alternatives, and new possibilities for yourself and for those you love. I invite you into this work, and I'm honored to walk alongside my clients on the journey.
