LGBTQ+/Fat Liberation/Poly/Kink

I hope that you will leave our sessions feeling heard, affirmed, and with tools to move forward. I am a strong advocate for all of my clients, and especially hope to serve those who may face marginalization in society and in mental health care, specifically fat people, LGBTQ+ people, and survivors of trauma. I believe that you are an expert in your own experience and seek to learn from and with you during our time together. My therapeutic style brings together a diverse set of therapeutic knowledge and tools in order to uniquely meet your needs. While much of my training is psychodynamic in approach, I also have experience in DBT, compassion-based mindfulness, and art therapy. Recognizing that many of the things that trouble us as individuals are rooted in and connected to broader issues in our society, I also integrate the teachings of social justice practitioners in my practice. The journey to reach a happier place is often one with many twists and turns along the way, but I will be right there with you as we move forward together.
