About Me

I work using an integrative, person-centered, inclusive, non-judgmental, non-pathologizing, lgbtqia+ affirming, culturally inclusive, trauma and systems-informed framework to mental health and wellbeing. I draw on many psychological perspectives, theories, brain-based techniques, mind-body practices, neuroscience, and research-backed modalities as well as practical solutions and more intuitive approaches to help you along the way.
