What to expect
We all need someone to hear us and see us within the context of our complex and often difficult lives. I offer a brave and validating environment where we can explore together in hope of lighten the burden you carry.
Individual sessions run 50 minutes long. In the first session, we will work to build our therapeutic relationship. You have entered this journey with a question. We will begin by discovering what your question is and why you are asking it at this particular point in life. We will co-create goals and set intentions. In following sessions, we will gently and constructively challenge unhelpful patterns that are not serving you. Through a series of curiosities, it is my hope that you will come to a satisfying solution for yourself.
In the helping process, I draw from a variety of evidence-based and empirically supported theoretical orientations while recognizing the need to attend to cultural and other forms of human diversity. I believe that the approach comes from the client. I am guided by a Postmodern Systemic approach as well as Experiential therapies, Feminist theory, and creative arts therapies. I am also professionally trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) as well as certified in Narrative Therapy.
We will consider your experience in family context as well as the broader social, spiritual, and political framework. Possibilities along our journey will be inspired by you. We may question the effect of gender roles and stereotyping as well as investigating our cultural understanding. We may use creative arts to bridge the relationship between language and action. We may spend time unblocking emotional expression and opening up to your inner experience.
We may look at the intersection of identities and the social construction of our experience. Culture, privilege, racism, heterosexism, oppression, classism, ageism, ableism, etc. are important contextual elements that play a role in our lives and are considered when determining goals and strengths.
I am LGBTQIA-friendly, poly-friendly, kink-friendly and I am inclusive of all gender and sexual diversities.
Your responsibility in the therapeutic process is to allow yourself to be curious. Join me as I will join you. When you are ready, set an intention of letting yourself and your truth be known. Outside of sessions, your responsibility is to attend to the intentions that you set for yourself. Notice when and if the unhelpful cycle shows up and bring that to be explored in therapy. The hope is that you take ownership over the process and that ownership echoes out into your life.

Therapy can be a challenging, cathartic, difficult, amazing, eye-opening, and beautiful process. I will be there to guide and support you in our sessions together and will help you to bring about positive change in your life.
