Hello! Thanks for your interest in my practice. My therapeutic approach is empathic, collaborative, and non-judgmental; I aim to provide treatment that is anti-racist, LGBTQIA-affirming, harm reduction oriented, and informed on experiences related to non-monogamy, kink, and sex work. My goal is to help clients address stuck patterns, heal past wounds, and cultivate the resources needed to live with insight and self-compassion. While my style is primarily psychodynamic and relational, I incorporate various modalities as needed, including IFS (Internal Family Systems) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
It's a priority that my clients feel safe and empowered throughout the treatment process. Moreover, I believe that an authentic connection between therapist and client is crucial in driving individual growth and change. In session, I engage actively with clients, at times asking challenging questions and offering feedback with kindness, honesty, and curiosity. I also enthusiastically welcome clients to share their own feedback about our work together.
