My Philosophy of Care

My therapy approach is firmly rooted in social justice, anti-oppression, Health at Every Size®, trauma-informed, and intersectional feminist theories. I strive to create a compassionate and non-judgmental atmosphere in which your identities feel seen and valued. I hope to work collaboratively to create goals to guide our work together and find skills to help navigate life’s challenges and your emotions more effectively. Additionally, I often work with folks to explore and make sense of larger systems impacting your lived experience (ex. racism, ableism, white supremacy, homophobia/biphobia, colorism, sizeism, capitalism, transphobia, etc.). This often involves exploration of how stress, anxiety, trauma, and depression may be a result of or worsened by these oppressive systems. Together, the therapy space can be a place to rest, reflect, and just be yourself. If you’re trying to figure out who you are, therapy can help with that, I’m here to help you explore, create, and understand what feels authentic for you!

About Me & My Practice

I am a white, queer, nonbinary femme, neurodivergent, fat, quirky, and colorful individual. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and DEI consultant who has worked in a variety of settings, including college counseling centers, veterans hospital, community mental health, and non-profit. Over the years I’ve found that many of the organizations I was part of were inadequately supporting individuals who are queer, trans, disabled, plus-size/larger-bodied/fat, or hold other “non-traditional” or marginalized identities. As a result, I decided I wanted to focus my clinical care on filling the gaps I saw in the mental health field both as a clinician and as an educator/consultant. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University, my M.S. from Palo Alto University, and my B.A. from New York University. While at NYU my individualized major explored the impact of childhood trauma on identity formation, resiliency, and mental health. Additionally, I worked closely with a professor to explore the psychological impact of cults both on individuals born into them, as well as for those who join in adulthood. I have continued to build my knowledge of high control groups such as certain religions, groups, and cults and have supported former members of such groups over the past several years. During my doctorate degree I specialized in mindfulness and LGBTQ+ psychology. My doctoral dissertation research focused on the mental health of plurisexual adults.

Accessibility Considerations

I opted to have my practice 100% virtual to increase access for clients. This was intentional to ensure folks could always meet me from spaces that are comfortable for them and required no travel. In-office experiences create a large barrier to care, because of transportation, childcare, weight limits of furniture, ADA accessibility, unfriendly employees. With virtual work you get to meet with me in whatever way is comfortable for you in a space that you are familiar with.
