My Background and Approach

I think of the therapy process as a bit like freewriting (the practice of writing freely without thinking, analyzing, or pausing, as a way of foiling the inner critic that causes writer’s block). Our inner critic is notoriously bad at recognizing creative genius. So when we let it run the show, we end up tossing out a thousand brilliant ideas before they even get a chance to make it onto the page. The same goes for our everyday thoughts. The gold gets thrown out before we even see it. Therapy is a place to let yourself say whatever bizarre, tangential, disturbing, brilliant thought (or feeling, memory, dream, or intuition) pops into your mind, so we can see what parts of yourself you’ve been silencing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My work is founded on feminist, anti-oppression principles. We've had our power taken away from us for too long, in big and small ways, from all kinds of people, institutions, and forces that seem far bigger than us. My goal as your therapist is to help you to take back the power that rightfully belongs to you and reclaim your capacity for growth, for change, and for Fucking Shit Up. Ultimately I want you to feel stronger and more confident, based on an honest, compassionate sense of your own strengths and limits.
