My Approach to Helping
As a queer woman who has never fit into mainstream culture, I know the feeling of going to therapy and not wanting to have to educate your counselor about your identity. It is always my goal to create a non-judgmental and empathetic space for my clients. Regardless of whether I am approaching treatment with a multicultural, queer, feminist, or psychodynamic framework, my primary theoretical orientation is always client-centered. My specialties include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), LGBTQ+ issues, and clinical letters for gender-affirming care. I am also kink and polyamory friendlyaffirming and sex-positive.
One of the biggest issues for individuals living with OCD is that it does not look like anyone thing. Sometimes you have obsessions or compulsions and you don’t know why, but they are still valid. You are not alone. Research shows that 70% of people who seek Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy for OCD achieve long-term symptom relief. Therapy works! As a therapist trained in ERP, I am ready to support you in your journey.
