My Approach to Helping

I hope that we can approach this work with open hands. I value a client therapist relationship that feels alive and I want you to be able to find the type of support and vibe that is right for you. I work collaboratively, creatively, and truly believe you own the work we do together. Theoretically, I am interested in Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Depth approaches. I enjoy the perspective of working with Systems, internally and within the cultural context in which you live. I want to offer a meaningful space for you to explore what is coming up for you in your own life and meet you with compassion, warmth, and acceptance.

I work relationally. We are in relationship with everything around us: people, plants, place, objects, money, gender, and our internal selves. I believe that it is important to explore what those relationships mean and how we can become more conscious of our life as a whole, made up of parts that interact with each other. What happens internally in our unconscious affects what happens externally and vice versa. I believe in the powers of the imagination and play as doors into our own unconscious. I enjoy working with creative minds who are curious about exploring, expanding, and queering our experiences of relationships. Through my own personal work, I am discovering my relationship with Queer Spirit. I work through a lens of queerness to explore how we can shift into fluidity, flexibility, and acceptance when change is present.

We live in a system that is constructed on privilege. I want us to be able to explore how privilege and position affects us, and those around us, to have a deeper understanding of our place and role in this world. In this exploration, we find curiosity, humility, laughter, ease, and community. I hope the work we do together can expand those areas in your life. If any of this resonates with you or makes you think, "Wait...what the fuck does that mean?" - call me - I would love to talk and see what happens!
