About My Clients

My clients are the gender outlaws at every stage of life. The outsiders. The neurodivergent, the queers and polycules, the artists and witches, the people with disabilities and chronic illnesses, the activists, the voice-hearers, the people who face fatphobia, racism, homophobia and misogyny every day. The survivors. The partners, family members, and loved ones who want to have a strong relationship that survives all of these challenges and transitions.

My Background and Approach

My approach is strengths-based and trauma-informed. I believe that survivors of trauma and oppression are incredibly resilient and capable of healing. I don’t shy away from difficult topics, but I take the time to follow your lead to a starting point that feels safe. I understand there is value in the ways you’ve learned to survive, even if those methods have outlived their usefulness. I will walk alongside you as you find new ways to thrive that don’t cause so much pain. I provide a space where stigma and judgement are replaced with openness and warmth. I know that every part of you needs to feel welcomed in order for you to grow. I advocate fiercely for every outsider and survivor I work with, but I also bring compassion and tenderness to my work with your family and partners who may be coming from a complicated place of love, fear, and grief. My goal is to deepen your understanding of each other in a way that lets your love thrive through challenges and transitions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My lived experiences with mental healthcare inspire me to do my best to make therapy an experience that is empowering and transformative for everyone. My activism in queer, trans, disabled, and fat liberation movements inform the way that I see my clients’ strengths and struggles. My years of experience working with youth, adults, partners and families living through acute trauma and mental health crises have taught me to be as brave as my clients with the work that we do. The HAES (Health at Every Size) movement also has a strong impact on my lens as a therapist, especially when working with clients with eating disorders. Bodies come in a diversity of shapes and sizes and we are all inherently deserving of access to respectful, well-informed, non-discriminatory, individualized healthcare.
