Too often, shame and isolation create barriers to healing -- nowhere is this more true than when struggling with addiction, abuse, and attachment ruptures. I believe that healing is not the absence of hurt, but rather having the audacity to imagine a life unfettered by pain. My practice is rooted in a non-pathologizing, strengths-based, and collaborative approach. I balance both the intellectual and emotional -- together, we will examine what beliefs, experiences, and assumptions may inhibit your ability to shed maladaptive behaviors. I utilize a harm reduction approach to support you in building capacity for change and choice.
I am interested in how our childhood experiences inform our current relationships, and utilize attachment theory to better understand these dynamics. I provide attunement and empathy, but don’t stay silent if I can offer perspectives or questions to help you gain new insight.
I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ youth and adults; in addition to sexual orientation and gender identity, I am passionate about confronting various forms of oppression pertaining to identity formation. I can also support you in grief and traumatic loss, healing from abuse/assault, and cultivating a more empowered relationship with addictive behaviors.
