Everyone comes to The Work in their own way, for their own reasons, in their own time. For some, that reason is to seek a safe space to explore and grow as they need. For others it's a dedicated ear and a mind trained to help them resolve emotional conflicts, stress, anxiety, and depression. Still others long to be seen and embraced (in all of their complexity and nuance). Whatever journey has led you here, my goal is to help you step into the fullness of your beautiful self and live the best life possible. My therapeutic style is integrative, person-centered, and anti-oppressive, with a focus on empowerment and embodied change. All services are: Kink, Poly/CNM, SW, and neurodiversity affirming.
Areas of specialty include: Trauma and post-traumatic resilience (esp. inter-/generational, developmental, chronic, and complex trauma); Chronic illness & Disability; Executive functioning/ADHD; Intersectional oppression and resilience; Navigating dysfunctional family dynamics; and Transgender Experiences across the life-span. I also enjoy working with individuals across the spectrum of human experience who are interested in divesting and healing from toxic socio-cultural formations (racism, sexism, ableism, cis-sexism, patriarchy, classism, etc.) as it manifests in our internal, behavioral, and interpersonal realities, to more fully embody the changes they seek in their lives (and the world).
I currently have multiple weekday telehealth openings via Zoom. Please feel free to contact me directly to talk about fees and what times are available, or to get on my waiting list.
