My Approach to Helping
Through a collaborative and curious approach to therapy, we can uncover the messages you've received from living in a patriarchal, heteronormative, cis-normative, and mono-normative society. I aim to create a comfortable and supportive environment where we can identify and deconstruct these messages together. As a therapist, I am integrative, relational, and narrative-focused, recognizing that no single approach works for everyone. I am an LGBTQ+-affirming, sex-positive, body-positive, kink-affirming therapist who is inclusive of all ethnicities, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship structures.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist, I understand that I am not an expert on my clients' lives, and our relationship is built upon the realities and experiences we both bring to the table. Our similarities and differences can shape the dynamic of our therapy sessions, but these can also lead to opportunities for growth. Growth, change, and evolution can be embraced through a collaborative therapeutic relationship and through our work together, conflict can be a catalyst for positive change.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Taking the first step to seek support can be difficult and it's understandable to feel like you've failed or that you regret not living life the way you wanted to. Therapy is a challenging journey of self-discovery and introspection and there?s no right or wrong way to do it. The best results come from being committed to the process and embracing the discomfort that may arise from it, while remembering that change always involves risk. Know that you made the brave decision to prioritize yourself and perhaps we can work together to help you achieve growth and self-improvement.
