Work With Me
Feeling connected with your therapist is the crucial first step on the journey of self-exploration. I use an eclectic approach to best match your needs and honor your goals. I lean towards a casual, relational yet assertive, and steady presence in the room (or shall I say, on zoom). I'll challenge you while holding a warm and encouraging space for you to explore and process. Building a therapeutic relationship is extremely important to me as I believe we are our best selves when we have strong relationships. I am systemically trained which really just means I look at the bigger picture and the various systems we all exist within rather than focus on any particular symptom or issue. I utilize a variety of models/theories such as Narrative, Structural, Bowen Family Systems, and Feminist Theory.
I'm queer competent, gender-affirming, pro-sex work, fat-positive, and polyamory & kink knowledgeable. My social locators are white, non-binary, queer, small fat, non-monogamy leaning, kinky, and a "retired" sex worker. Frankly, judgment has no place in therapy and I am here to welcome and support you with open arms.
When I'm not in the office I enjoy dancing, gardening, home projects, reading (or trying to), listening to podcasts, comedy, crime dramas, traveling, and hanging out with my wife and two dogs! I'm equally passionate about sexual freedom, fighting injustice, and queering up the world around me even when I'm outside of my role as a therapist.
