Summary

Practice Description
As a queer trans allied and poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming therapist of color, I’m profoundly passionate about collective healing and the uprooting of oppression through awareness, healing, and growth. I honor each of our unique journeys and differences, and am curious about getting to know yours deeply. I value supporting folks in moving towards greater authenticity and liberation through a feminist, multicultural, and decolonizing lens, and value anti-oppression both within myself and as a therapist. Together, we’ll work in ways that are in-depth and practical, move through challenges, and tap into the strengths that are already within you. It’s important to me that I offer an environment that is free of judgment and oppression, and in which you are fully seen, accepted, and affirmed.
