LMSW, Gender Therapist
I am a queer, cis-gender, femme human that uses she/her pronouns. I spend my personal time honoring my body through intentional movement, connecting with nature, filling my living space with too many plants and cats (it’s only 3 but I swear it feels like more sometimes!), and reading the endings of books before I even start them.
I center my care around building a safe and strong therapeutic relationship with each individual that I work with. I firmly believe that human connection and support can be the first step in healing and exploration. I draw from a broad variety of techniques and approaches and, in the true spirit of collaboration, always encourage my clients to let me know how best I can support them. As a queer, body-positive, and sex-positive clinician, I believe that therapy should be a place to celebrate and discover the complexities of being a human.
Areas of Interest: I enjoy working with clients who may be experiencing issues surrounding shame, self-esteem, body image, grief, depression, anxiety, 2SLGBTQ+ concerns, relationship struggles, and life transitions. This includes children and adolescents navigating the gender spectrum.
I have a particular interest in working with those who may be carrying a child or thinking about conceiving. Taking that step can feel scary and particularly polarizing in our binary filled world. I am here to hold and honor your space.
When working with me you can expect a laid back and gentle approach fueled by my genuine curiosity to get to know you. My sessions are casual, interactive, and always affirming. In my space, there’s no pressure to act a certain way – I’m here to be with the true you.
Individual sessions: The first session is $150 (Code 90791). Sessions after that are $140 (Code 90837). You will receive monthly superbills (special receipts) in case you want to submit them to your insurance or FSA for reimbursement. If you have out of network benefits, you will end up paying out of pocket likely $40-$100 per session.
