As a queer, trans, genderful non-conformist, finding the right therapist was hard. I’m here to bring supportive psychotherapy to people in rural Northern California who have trouble finding a counselor with knowledge and experience of non-normative cultures and experiences. I hope to provide an experience that speaks to the parts of you that don’t use words and honors your whole being.
I’m excited by combining creative expression of all forms, interaction with nature, and psychoeducation to create a learning experience that fosters insight, growth, and change. I have an eclectic style that includes somatic, cognitive, narrative, and behavioral approaches informed by feminist and queer perspectives. I use processes from Narrative Therapy, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Expressive Arts Therapy.
