I'm a therapist because I believe being in relationship with ourselves, each other, and the world is essential for our healing and well-being. In my own process of healing those relationships, I found purpose in supporting others as they do this work.
As an existential therapist, I want us all to be able to come home to our authentic selves. As a relational therapist, I strive to co-create a safer relationship with you that can be a site of care, connection, and healing. As a liberation-oriented therapist, I hold in our work the awareness that understanding how systemic oppression traumatizes us, undoing internalized narratives, reclaiming our identities, and finding empowerment are essential for us to heal and thrive.
I bring my whole self to the therapy room and hope you will do the same. I’m a white (Irish, English, and German descent), queer, invisibly disabled trans man. I look forward to hearing about the identities that shape your lived experience.
Black Lives Matter. I center BIPOC voices and experiences of racial oppression and white supremacy. I support Indigenous sovereignty. I interrogate whiteness, my own and the collective. I am committed to ongoing learning, undoing, and owning my mistakes.
Gender is not a binary. I affirm all gender identities and expressions. I will never make assumptions about your gender or pronouns, and will support you if you need a letter for affirming care.
Sexuality is expansive. Queerness, kink, BDSM, asexuality, polyamory, ENM, and other consent-based sexual expressions are part of the human experience. I encourage clients to explore their desires fully without shame.
All bodies are good bodies. I am aligned with fat liberation and the Health at Every Size framework. I will never suggest dieting as a tool. I work with clients to examine the ways diet culture damages their relationships with their bodies.
Disabled people are worthy. Disability justice rejects the emphasis placed on productivity under capitalism. Disabled lives are meaningful and deserving of support just as they are.
Neurodiversity is valuable. People of all neurotypes are inherently whole and capable. Mental health support is not about behavioral training, but about understanding access needs, learning how to interface with a world that doesn’t understand neurodivergence, and developing positive identity.
Sex work is real work. I want sex workers to have access to mental health care with nonjudgmental therapists who understand that they deserve dignity and safety in their work and in their lives.
Colonial constructions of therapy are harmful. You are the expert on yourself, and your struggles are not your fault. I am not about diagnosis (unless you want it) and interventions, but about deep understanding, witnessing, and healing.
My training and educational background includes an MA in existential-phenomenological psychology, a BA in gender studies, Internal Family Systems level I, Brainspotting level I, and Focusing levels I and II.
