Recognizing systemic and personal influences shaping our perspectives and actions can dismantle normalized expectations, challenge dominant scripts, invite de/re-construction, reveal the fragility of binaries and dichotomies, and expose the creation of iniquities. We internalize characteristics, beliefs, and patterns of institutions and structures around us, while our capacity to evolve, grow, and contribute is enduring and dynamic. Courage can carry us beyond modern conventions, towards practices of integrity, deeper connections, and psychological sustenance to create sustainable futures.

In holding individual realities, I emphasize the larger contexts of history, distributions of power, social locations, intergenerational transmissions, economic systems, political policies that form feedback loops with our bodies, minds, selves, spirits, environments, and relationships. As a queer therapist, I enjoy working with LGBTQ+ clients.

Therapy can bring awareness to our role in the world around us. It can take us to the edges of our familiar understandings, enabling moving beyond previously held notions of ourselves and our lives. Instead of avoiding the pain of uncertainty, we can learn from what discomfort has the potential to teach us. Consciousness can fuel liberation and healing.
