All emotional wounding happens in a larger context. We are all embedded in relationships, families, cultural identities community and institutional values. Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness. Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others, and are willing to engage in personal inquiry in an environment of connection?

Through the lens of intersecting realities, I see individual grief, trauma and distress as grounded in individual, generational and cultural oppression and distress. I work largely with people with marginalized identities. I work largely with LGBTQI individuals. I work primarily with adults. I work with relationships of any configuration.

We are living in tough times, with many of our stressors increasing and rising exponentially. I will work with you to locate yourself in both a deep personal way, and in a wider social context. I've been a psychotherapist, supervisor and consultant for 30 years. I believe my experience, instinct and presence work in harmony to fully engage with you.
