About My Clients

Do you feel exhausted and overwhelmed? Do you feel lonely even when surrounded by family and friends? Does it feel impossible to be more assertive because you aren't sure what your own wants and needs are? If the answer to those questions is "yes," we will probably be a good match. I've had a lot of experience treating people who are in your shoes, and have even been in them myself. My clients describe me as easy to talk to, positive, and validating.

My Background and Approach

It takes time to build trust. You aren't expected to tell me your life story in the first session (or even the second, third, fourth...). Together, we'll create a non-judgmental holding space where you can open up at your pace. As your therapist, I'll actively listen to understand, providing validation and compassion. But I won't just sit back and nod - I'll ask you thought-provoking questions. I'll point out things you may not have noticed, and make specific suggestions. There may be coping skills or behaviors that once helped you survive, but aren't serving you anymore. When you're ready, we'll discuss ways to replace them with alternatives. Change can be hard, and we'll troubleshoot any problems that may arise in the process. My approach is collaborative. Sure, I'm a "mental health expert," but you are the expert on yourself. I hope to cultivate an atmosphere where you're able to provide feedback to me, too. I use sense of humor and some self-disclosure when appropriate.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer woman myself, LGBTQIA+ advocacy is extremely important to me. I strive to help queer and trans folks feel seen in all the intersectional complexity of their identities, and their specific relationships to those identities. I am an activist who spends my free time organizing for public mental health resources and labor rights, supporting local organizations, and educating myself about other peoples' life experiences. Because I care about my clients and community, I work towards our collective liberation, both in and outside the 'therapy room.'
