My Approach

I believe that relationships are where we learn how to be people. Our bonds with other people are formative in how we understand our selves and the world. Relationships can also be a place where we experience loss, pain, and even trauma if our needs are not able to be met well. We develop survival skills to navigate the world and meet our own needs, but those skills are often impacted by our early experiences in relationships, and we take them with us into the rest of our lives. When we are living out of outdated stories around who we are or who we have to be, it can shape our ability to pursue lives of authentic connection with yourself and others. I will provide an honest and compassionate space for you to grow your understanding of yourself, who you have been, and who you're becoming.  We are not meant to suffer alone.

I am a relational psychodynamic therapist, which means the relationship between the client and therapist is a tool that we use to pursue healing. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, which are evidenced based practices that help us understand our thoughts, behaviors, and feelings and how they impact one another. I can offer DBT and ACT informed therapies as well.

I am deeply rooted in queer, decolonialist, and antiracist therapeutic perspectives, in which I continue to pursue my own learning and development around to meet people in their specific intersections of identity.

My Approach

My Approach

I work with people who are struggling with feelings of emptiness and overwhelm, seeking a deeper understanding of themselves, as well as wanting to integrate their self-awareness with their behavior and habits. We will explore your past experiences, your relationships, and your internal system of values and beliefs to generate insight and movement into the places you feel stuck. I will pay attention to the details, emotions, and patterns you bring into the therapy room and work with you to create new meanings in familiar places. I am experienced in working with trauma, neurodiversity, and the LGBTQ+ and kink communities.

I practice using relational psychodynamic therapy, contemporary psychoanalytic thought, somatic therapy, and gender/queer theory. I draw from these frameworks in my practice, tailoring my approach to your unique needs. ​As a therapist, I am gentle, reflective, and collaborative. My perspective is humanistic and non-pathologizing.

I am a member of the Center for Object Relations and the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study. I am committed to ongoing education to broaden my understanding of trauma, human development, and how systems impact our individual lives. I am passionate about abolitionist thought, anti-racism, and understanding the impacts of white supremacy. I also participate in ongoing clinical supervision and consultation.
