My Approach & Philosophy

We are all deserving to be seen fully and completely as we are, and to live in authenticity. Many of us have been taught to suppress our truest selves, particularly those of us who grow up with any identity that “othered” us. I understand the importance of creating a safe space for self-exploration and healing. I believe that through shared curiosity and genuine relationships, we can heal old wounds and live in alignment with our most authentic selves.

Drawing from my personal journey as a queer, autistic individual having navigated a life marked by misunderstanding and self-discovery, I bring a deep sense of empathy and understanding to those I sit with. I know that the journey to self-acceptance is not easy. I also know that it is a courageous and transformative process. It is a privilege to support others on their path to self-discovery, echoing the support I’ve received from family members, therapists, and fellow neurodivergent folx.

In my practice, I prioritize building a genuine and trusting relationship. I believe in creating space where you can explore and grow at your own pace. My approach is client-centered, incorporating feminist theory, somatic work, attachment theory, EMDR, trauma-informed care, and neurodivergent affirming practices. I believe in honoring your unique perspective and expertise in your own life.

I enjoy working with autistic, ADHD, and otherwise neurodivergent adults. I have a passion for supporting exploration of queer and gender-creative identities and feel a deep sense of compassion and connection with those whose life has been impacted by trauma.

In my time outside of work, I enjoy engaging in my special interests, which include but certainly are not limited to weightlifting, training my anxious dog Hazel, seeing my favorite artists in concert and crafting.

You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.
