About My Clients

Identifying as gay, non-binary, and masculine of center, I love working with folks in the queer, kink, and poly communities and thinking about the ways in which these communities and experiences intersect; I also work with a lot of trans folx who need support in their medical transitions. Additionally, I love working with parents and family units around equitable power dynamics, non-violent communication, and restorative practices.

My Background and Approach

My primary experience as a therapist comes from working with high-risk populations in residential foster care and as a middle school social worker. These experiences have reinforced my belief in the strength, wisdom, and resilience that each of us holds, and my goal with each client is to identify and draw on those qualities to address whatever topic brings you to my space.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I approach my role as a therapist from a restorative justice lens. So I absolutely believe that All Black Lives Matter and continually try to undo my own socialization that's tied into white supremacy and the maintenance of patriarchy. This journey has impacted the way I view my role as a queer parent (I have a toddler and another little one arriving soon!), which in turn, has impacted how I view my work as a therapist; I've found myself doing more attachment and inner child work both personally and professionally as a result of having a family of my own.
