About

I am entirely nonjudgmental and have worked with many clients with diverse issues, including exploration around mood and/or personality disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, gender identity, sexual orientation, social justice and many others. I am comfortable working with adult individuals from all communities, including BIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, kink, poly, etc. I also write letters of readiness for hormones and gender-affirming surgeries according to the WPATH Standards of Care. More info on me and my work can be found at www.diverserootstherapy.com.
I have an eclectic counseling approach but I use mainly affirmative, psychodynamic, trauma-informed and CBT approaches as well as mindfulness. What this means is that I look at the individual as a whole but also interpersonally and systemically. We can begin to rework maladaptive patterns that you’ve found yourself in.
Please reach out to me to find out more about my practice and to see if we might be a good fit. I currently hold a relatively short waiting list but please feel free to reach out to see if we (me or one of my students) have an opening that might work for you coming up!
