Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
People come to therapy for so many reasons – perhaps it’s a feeling of overwhelm, a desire to build connection and closeness with yourself and others, or just a hunch that something is off. Whatever your reason may be, now is a great time to begin.
My training is rooted in relational and psychodynamic frameworks, queer theory, harm reduction, and transformative justice. These tools are puzzle pieces of how I make meaning both in the world and in sessions with clients. My therapeutic style is warm and grounded, deeply curious, and collaborative. I attend carefully to pacing, and will prioritize your autonomy throughout the therapeutic process. Importantly, our work will center on what is important to you. I am very much myself in sessions which means that we laugh when things are funny and I will thoughtfully share interpretations and reflections with you.
When working with relationships, I draw on my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to support you in exploring how early life experiences shape how care and love are communicated and received. Through nurturing an understanding of past relational experiences, I will support you in turning towards processes that unfold in the therapy room to build capacity for clearer communication of feelings.
Many people I work with are navigating life experiences that include: Gender and identity exploration Supporting loved ones who are queer and/or trans Experiences of trauma (sexual, religious, childhood) Relationship challenges (desire discrepancies, shifts in relationship structure, sex and intimacy) Grief and loss Sport performance/college athletes Navigating polyamory/non-monogamy
Finding a therapist who is a good fit is hugely important. I offer a free consultation for us to explore if we are a good fit to work together.
