They’ve been around a while, by now. The work of therapy and counseling is no longer a new endeavor, and clinicians in their second year of associateship have sunk into their professional identities with thousands of hours of experience. Additionally, they’ve already begun the licensing exam process, focusing on cultivating the highest ethical standards of the field alongside the legal requirements of being therapists.

I am a queer therapist that offers somatically oriented therapy, a mind/body approach towards emotional and mental health. We hold a lot of unexpressed emotions and patterns in our body, and finding ways to notice and work with them can help us create shifts and cultivate tools for day-to-day life. Unlike traditional therapies, you will find the tools of connecting with your body, through safe touch, movement, and working in the present moment, can generate long term shifts in your entire constitution.

I believe that everyone deserves access to affordable mental health care, and approach every client from a stance of radical acceptance and love. In the room we work with whatever is comfortable for the client, including anything from established clinical tools to more holistic approaches, such as meditative grounding, somatic sensing, expressive arts, and energy work.
I particularly enjoy working with couples, parents, and gender non-conforming clients within those intersections.
