My Approach

My approach is rooted in a trauma framework, blending together body based Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR and parts work with more traditional relational and feminist psychodynamics. I am interested in not only getting to know your story, but your body and where it experiences safety & danger, as well as the parts of you that have been abandoned, or serve to protect those abandoned parts.

 

Together we will unpack core beliefs about yourself and discover where and who you learned them from. We will uncover how they have impacted your sense of self. Through EMDR, we can reprocess distressing memories and negative beliefs together that are keeping you from living your fullest, most authentic life.

In my opinion, understanding the impact of oppressions such as racism, homophobia, transphobia, fat-phobia, and misogyny can help us heal parts of us that have been rejected and shamed, and bring us closer to fully loving & accepting ourselves.

If you are looking for a therapist to write a letter for gender affirmation surgery, I will bring these​ values into our work together to help you feel empowered and affirmed by the process.

A percentage of my spots are sliding scale for QTPOC folks. 

All funds from missed & late cancelled sessions are used to support my work with queer & trans asylum seeking folks. You can donate to Immigration Equality directly here.
