specialize in working with sexual orientation and gender. I provide Trans, Non-Binary, and Queer affirmative care. I have expertise providing support for medical transition. My experience includes family therapy for family members seeking to support loved ones who are part of LGBTQ+ communities. I embody a systemic, harm reductionist, and narrative approach providing therapy for individuals, relationships, and families. I am passionate about meeting clients where they are, learning about their journey, while affirming self and other, to help understand and improve well-being. I believe that you are the expert of your own life. I am trained in Gottman and the Developmental Model (attachment based) for couples/relationship therapy. I am trained in Brainspotting and find the clients seeking to process trauma and/or move through areas in which they feel stuck benefit from this modality.
I see people and their experiences within the context of larger systems and have an understanding of how many of those systems can be oppressive and cause the very problems clients seek therapy for. My treatment framework is systemic, Trans affirmative, and anti-oppressive. Areas of focus include relationship issues, parenting, sexuality and gender, and couple/family adjustments. I am sex positive, sex worker and kink aware. I have experience working with polyamorous and non monogamous folks.
