I am passionate about working with: People of Color; Trans, non-binary, and genderqueer individuals, and their partners and families; Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer folks; Polyamorous and non-monogamous individuals, couples, families and other relationship configurations; Activists and organizers involved in social justice movements and struggles for liberation; and especially, people at the intersections of these categories. Therapy with me may be able to help with: depression and anxiety; grief and loss; PTSD and complex trauma; difficulty forming and maintaining nourishing relationships; and distress related to oppression.
I use a collaborative, client-centered approach to therapy. I am oriented around psychodynamic and attachment theory: I am attuned to unconscious beliefs, fears and desires, and how our earliest relationships to caregivers influence how we relate to people, life pursuits or the world itself. I believe in harm reduction, autonomy and self-determination.
I aim to create a space that actively works to counter oppression, including racism, sexism, homophobia and queerphobia, transphobia and transmisogyny, fatphobia, ableism and classism. As long as these systems are in place, this work will always be aspirational and incomplete. I strive to be accountable for the power I hold in my role as a therapist.
