None of us exist in a vacuum. I believe therapy is all about relationships and how we interact with the world, whether that means your relationship with yourself, your partner(s), or others. I see my role as helping you be able to see those relationships more clearly in order to be able to make choices to improve your life.
My clients tend to be individuals, couples and constellations who are looking to increase their awareness of themselves and their relationships. I tend to be very present and forward focused, working to understand who are you are in the here and now in order to improve your life in the future. Through a blend of DBT and Existential theories I tend to balance a problem-solving approach with considering life's bigger picture concerns.
As a member of the poly and kink communities, I understand the struggle of finding a therapist who sees you as more than just the one dimension of your gender, sexual or relationship expression. My lived experiences and extensive training inform my therapeutic approach, whether inclusion in this community is causing issues that brings you to therapy or is just part of who you are.
