I provide affirming tele-pscyhotherapy for the neurodiverse, queer, helper, gender expansive, nerd, first-generation-feeler, misfit, or rebel. I provide a safe, affirming, nurturing, and supportive space for self-discovery, acceptance, compassion, and change.
In therapy we will foster opportunities for you to learn to see and accept yourself for who you are unconditionally. I trust your internal wisdom and believe you deserve to live fully without exhaustion, shame, guilt, and resentment.
My approach fosters self-compassion to help free you of the societal expectations that lead to burnout, disconnecting from your body, anxiety, low self-esteem, and distrusting your own gut. When you learn to recognize your own strengths, instead of being held back by shame, you can set healthy limits in your relationships; develop balance between work, life, rest and play; foster creativity; and strengthen your intuition.
I embody Neurodiversity Affirming Therapy (NAT). NAT is a form of therapy designed to empower neurodiverse individuals using a holistic approach. NAT fosters an environment of acceptance and understanding, is grounded in research and clinical practice tailored to the needs of each client, views the client as an active participant in the therapy process, and seeks to nurture the client’s strengths and skills.
I offer psychological evaluations for gender affirmative surgery candidacy (ages 18 and up). I am dedicated to helping the transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, and gender-expansive community by providing this evaluation service along with individual therapy (if desired or recommended).
I recognize that transphobia and transmisogyny are enmeshed within our society and that the mental health profession has an unfortunate history of perpetuating prejudice, bias, and hate. I am committed to creating positive, affirming, and safe changes in my profession to support fully aligning within our values – you deserve nothing less.
When you work with me, you work with someone who is committed to creating a safe, supportive, nurturing and nonjudgmental therapeutic connection for self-discovery, acceptance, and change.
