About My Clients

At this time my work is a particularly good fit for: parents and caregivers, young adults, LGBTQ folks, people practicing nonmonogamy, and anyone yearning for personal and collective liberation. **virtual only**

My Background and Approach

While I come from a mental health background, I currently orient my practice away from a standard psychotherapy model of "diagnose and treat". This means that I don't diagnose and I work collaboratively with clients to provide a space in which they can determine the direction of their own healing. So often our emotional pain comes not from how our brains and bodies are, but from the stories we've learned to tell about them. Together we will unravel those narratives and build new behaviors, stories, and practices that are supportive to well-being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that healing of self lays the foundation for showing up authentically in relationships, doing fulfilling work, raising courageous and caring children, and building a more just and safer world for all. I believe that healing of self requires cultivating mind/body states that allow for joy, play, curiosity, and connection. I believe healing of self often means recognizing the ways in which we have been misled, harmed, and/or abused by larger social systems which were not designed for human thriving. My work has been, and continues to be, dedicated to investigating how we can better care for self and others.
