My Approach to Helping

Therapy is a brave step in the process of navigating life’s current challenges and healing past wounds in a safe environment. I offer a unique and compassionate perspective to therapy, employing IFSparts work and Psychodynamic methods, while drawing on the transformative power of curiosity and creativity as impactful tools for healing and growth. As a genderqueer person and 10 year resident of the city of Detroit, I recognize that oppressive systems contribute to mental health disparities among marginalized groups.

Combining my extensive experience teaching art across all age groups, my Master’s in Social Work, and my experience as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I work from a feminist, anti-racist, perspective.

Working with children (ages 6 and up), teens, and adults, my commitment to inclusivity includes LGBTQIA+ issues, disability, trauma, ADHD, autism, depression, and anxiety. I am here to provide a compassionate therapeutic experience for you to explore your narrative, embrace your strengths, and foster resilience, hope, and joy.

My Therapy Focus

Informed by an intersectional lens, my approach is grounded in equality and empowerment, addressing the impact of all parts of your identity on how you navigate the world and approach growth and healing. I will support you in navigating these complex experiences and identities through empowerment. I am affirming of all queer, chronically illdisabled, and neurodivergent identities, and always continuing my education on the liberation of all people, whether I have shared experience with them or not.

I have particular experience and understanding of the difficulty that neurodivergent, queer, and chronically ill people face in navigating our healthcare system, job market, and social world. I am also well versed in religious trauma, particularly experienced by queer people. Though these are my areas of focus, I am here to affirm and empower anyone looking for support navigating mental health issues, life changes, issues with self worth, trauma, and anything anything that you are struggling to process on your own. I am honored to walk beside on your journey towards healing, growth, and joy.
