About

I enjoy working with people as a guide to the maps of ourselves-- our identities, histories, relationships, politics, traumas, sexualities, all the parts that make up our broken wholes. As a queer person, I tend to work with other people exploring and expanding their sexualities and gender identities. As someone involved in radical politics, I offer validation and therapeutic solidarity to abolitionists and activists across the spectrum of liberation movements. And as a person with mental illness myself, I offer a dignified and person-centered approach to caring for our most sensitive personal issues and life challenges.
My graduate studies in Social Work and Women's and Gender studies bridged transformative justice with mindfulness, feminist relations of care and queer liberation with narrative therapy and trauma recovery, and decolonial, anti-racist politics with strength-based, person-centered practices.
If you are grappling with the political misery of our moment, experiencing tensions around sexuality or gender, struggling with acute psychological issues (such as seeing or hearing what others don't perceive, or chronic suicidal ideation), or other personal, political, or identity issues, then I invite you to schedule a free consultation session with me.
