About

The clients who are the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who want to build a stronger sense of self, learn how to center their own needs and set boundaries, and are open to inner child healing. The clients I work with want to change their relationship with themselves to be more compassionate and nurturing. They are recovering people pleasers, people who want to learn how to be more assertive, often have unresolved trauma, and are ready to break cycles in order to establish new patterns. They seek support from me to discuss dating, relationships, sex, childhood traumas, identity, and healing from abuse and neglect.
I offer feedback in a way that balances being direct and transparent with gentle patience. I have a special interest in gender, sexual, and racial identity development, polyamorous and non-traditional relationships, reparenting, inner child healing, and intergenerational trauma, and working with children of immigrants.
I am honored to be able to help support queer and trans people, people of color, especially women of color and Asian Americans, children of immigrants, sex workers, and trauma survivors. If what I've shared so far resonates with you, I invite you to reach out for a free consultation to see if we might be a good fit.
