I am a queer and trans therapist committed to providing trauma-informed care. I work with the frameworks of neurodiversity, fat liberation, HAES (Health at Every size), and disability justice. Many of my clients come to me because they need a provider who is LGBTQIA-affirming, kink and polyamory aware, and sex worker-friendly.
If you’re a member of any of these communities, you know how challenging it can be to find a therapist who truly “gets it”. I offer an environment where all of these parts of you can be welcomed, seen, and appreciated.
This frees you up to be your most authentic self in our work together, and for us to focus on what matters most to you in counseling.
My role as a therapist is to collaborate with you. I bring my skills and experience, but you are the expert on your own life. I believe in your strength and resilience and I'm here to help you reach your goals.
Maybe your goal is to make sense of traumatic experiences, to build more connection in your life, to explore your own identity, to understand yourself better, or simply to get through the hard times in one piece. Whatever your focus is, I'm here and ready to work beside you on this journey.
I know therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all experience. That's why I incorporate a variety of therapeutic approaches tailored to each client. I use strengths-based, person-centered frameworks and often draw from somatic modalities, internal family systems, CBT, DBT, and more.
My years of experience working with youth, adults, partners and families living through acute trauma and mental health crises has taught me to be as brave as my clients with the work that we do.
My lived experiences with mental healthcare inspire me to do my best to make therapy an experience that is empowering and transformative on your terms. My activism in queer, transgender, disabled, and fat liberation movements informs the way that I see my clients’ strengths and struggles.
I provide online therapy for California residents. You can read more about me and my approach at:
