About My Clients

As a queer non-binary clinician, my work is focused on marginalized communities, with a strong emphasis on LGBTQIA2S+, and nonconforming individuals. I provide dedication to psychosocial treatments that are tailor-made to the individual and include sensitivity and respect for their cultural and spiritual framework. I provide a holistic approach to treatment of trauma and addiction that addresses mind, body and spirit.

My Background and Approach

I have a deep passion for helping others who have been harmed by community to once again find relation and safety in others. I completed a year long clinical internship at Sound Community Mental Health in Seattle, WA then spent the remainder of 2020 as a therapeutic housing program clinician in Portland OR for a non-profit specializing in CSEC (commercially sexually exploited children). My work experiences center working with adult and teen clients in crisis that struggle with addiction (through the lens of trauma) in it's various forms.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My theoretical approach has been heavily influenced by attachment theory and relational psychodynamic psychotherapy. I believe that we are all beings who ultimately desire to belong and that most of our traumas are a result of somewhere down the line not being accepted in some way, shape or form. Oftentimes these wounds are in our subconscious and we have very little awareness to how much they can control our day to day interactions. What’s left unaddressed has a funny way of continuing to pop up. Truth: Recovery is not black and white. There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to addiction, even though you might feel that way. That’s because traditional recovery programs focus on the substance or behavior, rather than the person. Put simply, addiction is a direct response to trauma. It’s not a choice or a weakness. But it is something you can choose to walk away from.
