Hi! I’m Jade, I focus on sexuality, gender identity, neurodivergence, and trauma. I’d love to support you with your mental health!
Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado
I have been trained in being a victim's advocate and have worked on support hotlines for survivors. I am also trauma-informed and operate from a stance that what happened to you was not your fault. Let's work to find out what healing looks like for you.
I am a queer woman. This is my lived experience. I pride myself on learning as much as I can about other people's queer/LGBTQIA+ lived experiences. You deserve a therapist who sees you and understands you for who you are.
I have years of experience working with Autistic people. First off, it is not a disorder, it's a way of being. There are no "high functioning vs. low functioning" autistic people. Those labels are harmful. Autism is a spectrum not a scale.
The personal is political. This has always been the most obvious concept to me. You may have been blamed for your own "shortcomings" in the past. It's your fault that you have anxiety,depression, etc. While there are chemical reasons for some mental health issues, most of them are exacerbated by the harsh and dangerous world we live in. We are surrounded by systems that perpetuate us being stuck in a struggle and not able to prioritize our own well-being. Let's work together to navigate this!
I am trained in EMDR which works wonders on healing trauma that has become stuck in our minds and bodies. It is an intense but very effective way to heal from the past and adapt to the present and future.
