My approach to therapy is rooted in anti-oppression and liberatory principles, seeking to honor each person’s autonomy. I have specialized training in trauma practice, particularly around experiences of abuse, violence, and intergenerational trauma. I draw from a variety of therapeutic techniques, including psychodynamic therapy, Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and other relational and somatic approaches. Much of my experience is working with people of color and queer and trans/GNC communities, and my practice is sex work, kink/BDSM, and poly/CNM-affirming. I am a queer, mixed-race, Asian American of Uchinanchu and Ashkenazi Jewish descent, and my therapy space is warm and collaborative, fostering individuals’ ability to build resilience, joy, and power.
