About My Clients
I provide identity-affirming therapy to young adults, particularly to those who are queer, trans, or consensually non-monogamous. I enjoy working with those who previously had poor experiences with therapy, and those who “feel different.”
My Background and Approach
I received my clinical social work training at Simmons University, with placements working with at-risk youth and in adult community mental health. After completing my MSW in 2014, I provided clinical services to adolescents, adults and families in community-based, residential, and primary healthcare settings. I also spent a number of years working with homeless adults, both therapeutically and in a program management capacity. My diverse background in clinical social work has prepared me to work thoughtfully with marginalized adults within a trauma-informed, liberation health-based framework. My work is grounded in person-centered practice; this means that you are the expert on your own life, and I am a guide and witness on your healing journey. Together, we will construct a narrative that feels affirming and true to you.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am sex positive, anti-racist, and I believe in health at every size. I am more interested in your aspirations and what makes you feel true to yourself than what you “should'' do or be.
