About

I offer trauma-informed, shame-free, LGBT-affirming, sex- and kink-positive therapy for each and every person I've had the honor of working with. My practice is grounded in choice and consent, safety, collaboration, trustworthiness, empowerment, and social justice. As a queer therapist and community mental health worker, I've had extensive experience with people struggling with life changes, anxiety, depression, mania, hearing voices, and OCD; with complex trauma and with substance use and addiction; with people diagnosed with personality disorders; and with TGNC youth. NOTE: Preference for new clients will be given to trauma/LGBTQ
Using principles from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), trauma-informed care, harm reduction, mindfulness, and feminist relational theory, I can help you discover the wisdom you hold to save yourself and understand the structures that have impacted who you've become. I will do this with creativity, humor, blunt honesty, and compassion. I'm trained in EMDR.
You are not what’s been done to you. And you are not your darkest parts. Those of us who grew up in invalidating environments have learned to invalidate our own experiences and emotions. By accepting what you really think and feel, you can choose how to live. Priority will be given to LGBTQIA people and/or those seeking trauma therapy
