About My Clients

Have you ever wanted a drag queen as a therapist? Well you've come to the right place. In my spare time I'm a drag queen from New York, so I'm not afraid to call you out. Don't worry, I won't read you, though a client has said I snatched their wig once. I want sessions to be fun, while also helpful. Once we have a relationship built, I will happily call you out on patterns that I see haven't been working. We will work to have these patterns sashay away.

My Background and Approach

Our community faces barriers that our cis het counterparts don't - systemic barriers, dysphoria, feeling outcast (even in our own community), so why would my approach look the same? We will work together on the path to self love - EVERYBODY SAY LOVE! I use a solutions based approach to identify tangible ways to fix what's happening, as well as CBT and EMDR approaches. However, a lot of these theories were not built for BIPOC or queer folx, so I will bend and twist them into something that works - like Yvie Oddly in a lip sync.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I want to ensure that I create a space for folx to feel they can be their authentic selves. I always give folx the stink eye when they apologize for cursing. If our goal is for you to love yourself and be authentic, why filter yourself in any capacity in our time together? What better place to start trying out new things that feel authentically you? Because if you can't love yourself, how the hell are you goign to love anyone else? Can I get an amen? Now let the music play!
