“Bridging is the work of opening the gate to the stranger, within and without.” – Gloria E. Anzaldúa. You’re at an inflection point. A chasm appears insurmountable. The ground has shifted; you’re on rocky terrain. The trail’s end is hazy, but you catch a glimpse: the outline of a hopeful future, somehow. Neglect can match abuse in its decimation of the soul. So let us nurture those neglected pieces of yourself too long ignored.

I’m excited about us getting to feel more whole. We’re not helping ourselves, or the earth, or the people we’re in community with if we’re shutting down and killing parts of ourselves. We learn quite early to value some and shut down other parts of ourselves, and the oppressive, dominating, greed-driven forces of our world traumatize us so that we can no longer access vital parts of ourselves. And its messed up that it’s even our job to take care of ourselves in the first place - that we have to heal from things that aren't even our fault. But we do, or at least, we can. I enter as a compassionate guide to walk that path with you.

Now accepting new clients! On this journey of life, there are times you may feel alone, feel stuck in unwanted patterns, or feel overburdened by your challenges. Maybe it is hard to even identify what is causing pain, or what is not quite feeling right. You are not alone in these struggles. I know from my own experiences that it can be hard to reach out for help and do this work of self-reflection and self-discovery, but it is so worth it. You are worth it.

As a queer person myself, I have a passion for working with LGBTQ, and particularly Trans and Non-Binary adults and adolescents. I can help you reach your goals by providing a safe space to explore what might be holding you back and helping you identify an authentic path forward. Together we can work on slowing down, making time for yourself, and getting through this one day at a time. We can work together to tap into your internal strength and resiliency and identify tools to cope with whatever challenges you're experiencing.

I have had the privilege of working with a diverse set of clients with a wide range of backgrounds and needs. I offer a supportive space that counters the normativity within this culture that often is oppressive to people based on their identities. I recognize that what healing journey one person, relationship or family may need may be different than another and help to support you on that journey. In addition to being neurodivergent and transgender myself, I have also supported folks who are neurodivergent, queer and/or plural.

Are you curious who you can trust with your fears and worries, or your hopes and dreams? Have you tried quitting/cutting back on those negative coping skills but seem to keep falling back into your old patterns? You might be wondering if there's someone out there who can celebrate you for being a little "outside the box". Maybe you’re in a consensual non-monogamous relationship, you identify as LBGTQIA2+ or you’re considering transitioning your gender or sexual orientation and you're wondering who you can trust to be affirming and knowledgeable. You deserve to be truly seen and celebrated for everything you bring to this world.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

I utilize an embodied & relational approach that is curious, compassionate, strength-based and trauma-informed to help you achieve your goals. I attune to issues of systemic oppression such as racism, patriarchy, capitalism, colonization, ableism, fatphobia, and other forms of structural violence and its related traumas. As a queer, non-binary child of immigrants, I'm familiar with bi-cultural experience. I'm sex & sex work positive, and experienced in working with kink/BDSM & non-monogamy/polyamory. I'm a good fit for folks who want to experience greater fulfillment, pleasure, and, satisfaction in their relationships & life.

My lived experiences of being a queer, non-binary, immigrant, person of color navigating the world and the trauma that comes with that, have led me here.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
