Wáa sá i tuwatee (hello/how is your spirit)? I see clients from all walks of life, and specialize in supporting people from my own communities, including trans, queer, neurodivergent, Indigenous, mixed or complicated race/ethnicity/culture, and chronically ill/disabled people and their loved ones. My approach is non-pathologizing, liberatory, decolonial, and recognizes you as the expert on your story. I integrate a variety of evidence-based therapies, including Gestalt, EFT, EMDR, and mindfulness to tailor the right fit for each client. I welcome teens 16+, adults, elders, couples, and polycules for individual and group sessions.
I became a therapist in part because I saw that in this field, there weren’t very many people like me, and I wanted to do my part to change that. Simply existing in this world as a person with marginalized identities is a radical and labor-intensive act, and I am honored to serve my communities with client-centered therapy that recognizes this fact.
If this sounds like the kind of therapy you have been looking for, please reach out to schedule a free 15-minute phone consult. We can discuss your needs, goals, and options. I look forward to meeting you!
