You need not walk alone through trauma, grief, loss, anger, stuckness, numbness, overwhelm. You’re getting through the day, exhausted from saying “It’s fine,” needing new perspectives and tools. We will work together to foster a new way forward, carried by meaning-making, gentle curiosity, inviting change, and recalibration toward innate wholeness. I approach therapy as an intentional, collaborative relationship rooted in the belief that people are inherently adaptive and fundamentally whole. My approach is trauma-informed and person-centered, both reflective and practical. We uncover, discover, discard, reimagine, restore, re-story. We’ll use integrative methods to support your growth: increase understanding, relief from relentless patterns, compassionate reflection, focused skills development, cultivating a transformed relationship with your experience. My background spans LGBTQ+ counseling, somatic/body-based work, strength-based brief therapy, process groups, treatment and all-recovery. I’m a queer genderfluid therapist, and I meet ALL clients with: safety; trustworthiness and transparency; collaboration and mutuality; empowerment, voice, and choice; peer support; acknowledgement of cultural, historical, and gender dimensions. I am committed to liberatory work in my practice, and to movements that fight to end intersecting oppression.
