Compassionate rather than corrective care
If you suspect you need a therapist who works outside the status quo, or who can work more creatively and compassionately with you, we might work well together. I do not ask my clients to adapt to oppressive situations or simply adjust to pain. We can identify what feeling well looks like for you and figure out how to work towards that, using your values as a guide. When so many people have had bad experiences searching for and working with therapists, something is fundamentally wrong with the mental health care system. I can offer knowledge and resources that truly center and adapt to your experience.
I have extensive experience with trauma healing, eating and body image issues, chronic stress, and fostering resilience after abuse. My work is grounded in feminist, anti-racist, LGBTQIA-affirming, and anti-authoritarian practice. Let's figure out how to make therapy what you need it to be.
Bio
I am a therapist who also has lived experience receiving mental health care. I use this perspective to maintain humility and compassion with clients who may be used to thinking they're crazy, or being treated as though they are crazy. My passion for social justice began in childhood and evolved through my pursuit of womxn's studies, and then social work. I enjoy discovering infinite ways of being well and working towards merging community and individual healing.
