My Philosophy of Care

I am a solo practitioner working via telehealth in Massachusetts. I work primarily with fat and queer people. Many of my clients experience significant medical discrimination because of weight. As a superfat person, I too experience significant discrimination. One of my missions is to help people navigate the oppressive system we face in society by building their sense of self-worth and by advocating for change to the system that oppresses all of us. I’m fat, I’m queer, I have an intersectional lens, and I want to dismantle systems of oppression one client session at a time.

About Me & My Practice

I’m a forty-one year old, queer, fat, white lady who lives on the South Shore of Boston. I’m an LICSW (Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker - a licensed therapist). I do therapy via telehealth for clients located in Massachusetts. I like reading, writing, fat studies, queerness, tarot cards, disrupting power dynamics by being unapologetically myself in all spaces, and learning new stuff. I love doing therapy and feel blessed every day that I get paid to do what I have always wanted to do. ​ I believe that our lived experience strongly informs who we are and what we do. I also believe that a therapist must be aware of power dynamics that they intentionally and unintentionally bring to their practice. To that end you should know that I am: White Superfat Queer Cis Assigned female at birth and very femme presenting Financially privileged Blessed with a festival of mental health diagnoses - Don't worry though, I work on my stuff with my therapist, we will just be working on your stuff.

Accessibility Considerations

As a telehealth provider the main accessibility concern for my work is for folks who don’t have access to a computer or phone or other way to attend video or audio sessions. I am more than happy to do phone sessions for folks with visual impairments or for whom a computer is not available. I am also more than happy to conduct sessions via zoom’s chat function (with or without the camera) for hearing impaired clients or for clients for whom being visually perceived is stressful but who also don’t want to do a phone session.
