I believe in therapy that brings our whole selves into our work. So in addition to deep empathy and going deep into the issues, you can expect space for our shared humanity, humor, and maybe even a few curse words when working with me. In addition, my practice is rooted in principles of intersectional justice, harm reduction, pleasure, embodiment, and intentionality. I strongly hold the position that social oppressions such as racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism, and so on, operate as traumas and stressors and thus, are of clinical concern as barriers to wellness.
I specialize in working with folks who are: childhood and adulthood trauma survivors, LGBTQIA+, kink/BDSM-involved, polyamourous and non-monogamous, neurodiverse, chronically ill and in pain, disabled, and navigating the impact of fatphobia (whether you are fat-identified or not). I also offer training and consulting on serving these groups safely, competently, and affirmatively. I am neurodiversity-friendly and believe in a world where we can unmask freely. My approach is rooted in somatic and parts-work approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST), and Internal Family Systems. When working with couples or polycules, I draw on Imago, Psychodynamic, and Emotionally-Focused modalities as well.
