I am a queer AFAB transgender LGBTQ affirming therapist with client experience across a variety of sexualities, gender identities, relational status or style, abilities, cultures, and beyond. My speciality is working with the transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive/nonconforming communities, as well as sexuality and gender identity exploration, ethical non-monogamy, and other queer identities. Ages I work with include children, teenagers, young adults, adults, families, and couples/poly patients.
I combine evidence-based therapeutic practices with real-world application, placing your voice and experience at the forefront of therapy. I invite you to share your narrative of who you are, what you are experiencing, and how I can help support you. Through this, I am able to provide interventions unique to you and planning tailored to who you are, in conjunction with your feedback. My approach is rooted in an affirming, social justice lens and combines narrative therapy, mindfulness, family systems, and cognitive behavioral therapy, among other perspectives. I enjoy incorporating mindfulness, grounding, and somatic work into therapy sessions.
Holding an LGBTQ or queer identity is not a requirement for patients I see, nor does it need to be the focus of our work together. I hold and acknowledge the unique identities you have, providing a space, affirming space for our work together. I keep your identities in consideration when assisting you in navigating your experiences, and how the unique intersections and complexities of your identities may affect other areas of your life. I foster a collaborative space for my clients to connect and explore their life experience, deepen self knowledge, and create more positive outcomes.
