About My Clients

I appreciate connecting with as wide a range of people as I can. I'm a good therapeutic fit for clients striving for greater authenticity and self-understanding. I love working with queer people and accordingly have become experienced sitting with trauma and marginalization. "Clinical issues" I feel comfortable with include mood disorders, substance use issues, life transitions, psychosis, and relational problems.

My Background and Approach

I'm trained as a dual-diagnosis clinician, so I feel comfortable working with both mental health and substance use issues (they're often separated in medical contexts). Clients come in with a diverse range of problems that need support so I try to be as eclectic as I can while still staying grounded in theory/science. I rely most heavily on existential theories, heavily informed by feminist and social justice ideology. In addition, I often find it helpful to introduce some more practical approaches like CBT and DBT. I like to work collaboratively with clients to determine how they can best be supported. I try to speak clearly and firmly which some might consider challenging. I believe that a strong therapeutic rapport is the best predicter of success, so my overarching goal is always to foster an authentic relationship. I try to invite a genuine, truthful dynamic between us, acknowledging that this relationship is weird and unlike any other.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we're all dumped into a set of impossible circumstances, trying to navigate as best we can. We struggle when our wants and needs are in conflict. In therapy, healing and change come through exploration, experimentation, and curiosity. Hopefully we arrive at a place where you feel a greater sense of control and understanding, ultimately better integrating those wants and needs. To be honest, I have no idea how any individual is going to get there. I don't intend to teach people how to live, instead I see my role as an informed companion. I have a set of tools and a breadth of knowledge to access as we explore the wilderness of your experience hand in hand.
