Hello and welcome! I am a therapist who specializes in LGBTQ+ mental health. My professional therapy experience includes anxiety, depression, gender, sexuality, and trauma. I welcome working with people who are professional care providers, as well as people with disabilities. I identify as disabled, queer, and transgender (she/they pronouns).
I am a Seattle native and also spent a significant portion of my youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. I volunteer in my community including for the Trans Justice Advocacy for King County Jails task force. I’ve taken on both Sound Transit and the University of Washington largely by myself and in both cases forced change. When I am not engaged in my profession capacity, I am passionate about art, books, cooking, film, music, and nature. Before going back to school, I was a chef until an arm injury left me disabled.
I work with individuals, couples, and polycule’s in a collaborative and affirming dialogue. My style is an integrated process rooted in a psychodynamic approach, one mindful of both your strengths and struggles. I believe establishing a safe and healing space is critical to effective collaborative therapy. Progress develops when we feel we are affirmed for who we are in the moment. That we are reliably safe to explore, feel, reflect, or weave meaning from our experiences, explore possible shifts and affirm what we may wish to hold onto.
I see my practice as a creative type of activism practiced through supporting the holistic wellness, adaptability, and sustainability of individuals as well as communities at the forefront of historical oppression and trauma. As such my practice is trauma informed, intersectional feminist, body and sex positive, grounded in de-colonizing methodologies and evidenced based interventions. It is motivated by my grassroots activism and personal lived experience as a queer transgender woman. I am kink and polyamory affirming and have experience supporting sex workers.
In addition to my clinically focused Master of Social Work, I have a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, both of them from the University of Washington. During my MSW studies I engaged in advanced work in the Psychology, Law, Societies, and Justice, Disability Studies, as well as Sociology Departments. My work at UW was awarded a Husky 100 (2019) and an Excellence in Social Impact award (2021) from the School of Social Work. I received my Bachelor of Arts from The Evergreen State College. I stay up to date with the latest research and methods related to my field as well as my specialties.
I have experience providing LGBTQ+ one-on-one and couple’s therapy as well as community and crisis mental health services and case management since 2019. In that time, I have supported many people of diverse circumstances and histories to successfully meet their singular challenges with imagination and resilience. I have had the privilege of working with multiple individuals at various points of gender transition from contemplation-to active living. Additionally, I have a background in the nonprofit field as a paralegal and as an administrative assistant, teaching, as well as equity and inclusion work within higher education.
