Hi, there! bell hooks once said, “queer not as being about who you are having sex with, but queer as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live.” As a queer, non-binary, non-monogamous individual, many of my identities are marginalized. As a result, I deeply resonate with inclusivity, community, and am committed to providing care for people who have historically been excluded by therapists. I firmly believe self-awareness of choice and personal embodiment is the foundation of mental health and psychological well-being. Having worked extensively with children and families, I am open to taking on individual clients, couples, and polycules.
