I'm a queer, disabled, neurodivergent, self-identified weirdo who knows how important it is to have a therapist who 'gets it' and who you 'click' with! Are you having a hard time finding a therapist who has lived experience similar to yours? Do you want to explore your queer identity, find your voice or break an unhelpful pattern? Are you navigating complex relationships with family as you break those intergenerational trauma cycles? Were you recently diagnosed with ADHD or ASD or just feel like an outlier? I got you! Together let's shed those layers of unworthiness and get you feeling confident about who you are and what you want!
Our therapeutic relationship will be built on a solid, positive, trusting relationship that feels empowering and comfortable. With my down-to-earth, warm approach, my hope is that you won't feel like you're at a medical appointment, you'll feel like you're connecting human to human and that you finally have someone in your corner! Let's heal in community!
I use many therapeutic modalities and approaches that are social justice informed, while also relying heavily on intuitive, client lead and relational interventions. Remember the revolution starts from healing within! You don't need to do this alone. Let's start building our connection and get you on your way to feeling as fabulous are you truly are darling!
