About Me

I am a queer (LGBTQIA+) identified therapist that has a focus on CPTSD. I am certified in EMDR and hold a parts informed (multiplicity of the mind) lens. The foundation of my work is relational and somatic, and if it is appropriate to our work, can offer safe somatic touch for nervous system support and developmental healing. My practice is oriented towards social justice and decolonization with a focus on holding space around healing from oppression and dismantling white supremacy. I specialize in working with sex workers and LGBTQ+ communities. My practice is Covid safe(r) and I continue to require masking for in person sessions.
