My Philosophy of Care
I consider my role with my clients as a guide, a coach, someone who can come along side them and help them reach their goals. I want all of my clients above all to feel safe. Therapy is therapeutic, primarily because of the relationship between therapist and client, rooted in unconditional positive regard. My approach to ‘health’ is non-pathological. Health is defined differently by each of us through our experiences, strengths and challenges. In my work, I bring a systemic, contextual lens and tailor my treatment appropriately. I work primarily with the perinatal population, including people who’ve experienced pregnancy loss and infertility. Anti-fat bias from the medical system is rampant in related to conception and pregnancy. I am committed to deconstructing and challenging this embedded bias alongside my clients while supporting them through their reproductive journeys. I want to continue to build a more inclusive and kind world based in celebration of our inherent worth as humans. There is so much trauma that exists from people being exclusionary, hateful and naive. HAES work is trauma informed work. Each person’s embodied experience is unique, and I want to understand their journey, hopefully coming along side them with support. I try to consistently practice self reflection around interventions I use with clients, making sure such tactics don’t implicitly or explicitly support diet culture, punitive movement, or anti-fat bias.
About Me & My Practice
During my eleven years of practice, I’ve gained a deep abiding respect for the impact of systemic trauma as well as the perseverance of the human spirit. Over the years, I noticed many of my clients were in reproductive age and coming to me with challenges specific to this time period. Due to the need and my interests, I received more training and specialized in perinatal mental health. I have a Perinatal Mental Health Certificate through Postpartum Support International and am a trained Abortion Doula. My dedication to decreasing anti-fat bias has increased over seeing the stigma my clients experience in the medical community, specifically around conception and pregnancy issues. I enjoy working with client’s intersectional identities and how it shapes their reproductive journeys. I live in beautiful Seattle with my partner, my dog—Haddie and cat—Z. I enjoy a variety of crafts—painting, making cards, attempting to re-learn how to play piano, reading, listening to podcasts and sipping whiskey.
Since the start of the pandemic, my practice is 100% online. I am a solo practitioner, so I am responsible for my clients’ entire experience. From first contact, I am mindful of language in my promotional content as well as my intake forms. People of all genders, skin colors and sizes get pregnant and have babies. I can’t offer non-English services at this time. I’m open to doing phone sessions if able to do so ethically. If a client has an issue with a piece of my practice, I encourage communication around changes.
