Tia Pinkson-Burke is not currently accepting new clients.
*CURRENTLY FULL* I utilize an eclectic, psychoanalytic, and relational approach while employing a strong racial justice, feminist, and queer theory lens. I practice from a fat-lib, sex-positive, and intersectional feminist perspective. I believe that one's past informs how they interact with and experience the world. Healing takes place as one fosters empathy and consideration for their past and present selves. The therapeutic relationship allows for gaining deeper perspective and understanding of oneself. I strive to build genuine and earnest rapport with my clients by being deeply nonjudgmental and always practicing with respect.
My specialties include: sexuality/gender identity development, LGBTQIAA+, emerging adulthood, young adults, trauma, survivors of sexual violence, kink/BDSM, non-traditional relationship and family structures, family of origin concerns, chronic health and pain concerns, sex work(ers), radical fat liberation, and positive body esteem development.
In my work I rely on authentic relationship building, humor, genuine curiosity and warmth towards my clients, deep empathy, and gentle honesty. I strive to hold my clients' humanity while also challenging oppressive beliefs and behaviors.
