The process of building authentic relationship and engaging with what cannot be said in other areas of our lives are deeply empowering processes. I work from a place of being true to myself and you, and this includes my identities and competencies in queer, nonmonogamous, and kinky ways of being. I engage with therapy always from a place of respect and openness first. My earnest engagement, wry sense of humor, and ability to engage gently with what may be scary about the work of self-knowing are some of my first tools to help you attend to your needs in therapy. Let's make it weird!

I work from a theoretical grounding in Gestalt therapy, and am also highly integrative. This modality emphasizes authenticity, so I am very direct about what I think might be happening in the room and will encourage you to experiment with your own authentic expression. I will encourage you to find grounding in embodiment and noticing how your body responds.

I notice that none of this is possible without social justice narratives, as power and privilege inform our many cultures like the air we breathe. I am committed to equity and engagement with the structures that are not right. Systemic issues create distress, and acknowledging these impacts are the very first step to engaging with them.

I am a queer, nonbinary, spectrum-adjacent femme and an integrative let’s-find-what-works clinician.
