About My Clients

I help neurodivergent people, primarily Autistic and/or ADHDers from a disability justice, fat friendly, LGBTQIAP+ affirming perspective. I consider it a privilege to support those who have potentially spent their whole being “othered”, shamed, and not feeling “right” because the world tells us we are wrong for existing as our authentic selves. I believe as humans we can never be broken, but we can be in debilitating pain, and we need help to be fulfilled in our lives. I am here to help

My Background and Approach

To support you in being your most authentic and healthy self, I incorporate aspects of many different therapy modalities to give non-pathologizing, neurodiversity-affirming care that is specifically tailored to meet your needs. In therapist speak: I use aspects of Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Mindfulness, & Somatic-based Practices to craft our sessions in order to best support you. Our therapy will be from an intersectional approach– looking at how your environment, society, and experiences impacted and continue to affect your life. Some of my clients have never been in therapy before, and some of them have seen a handful of therapists before stumbling on to me, none of which felt "right", but they haven't given up hope yet. Regardless of where you are in your healing journey, it will be my honor to support you through this

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a queer, fat, disabled, neurodivergent, white ciswoman. I am Brasilian-American, founder of Apoio Counseling, a cat-mom, and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I provide an intersectional approach to therapy because we are intersectional beings. To quote Audre Lorde, “There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” I understand that stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression are all impacted by our environment and our lived experiences in a society that is structurally and socially oppressive to some of us more than others. As your therapist, it is my honor to affirm and validate your worth and value through challenging negative self-narratives while supporting you in creating a life that makes you feel fulfilled--your best life.
