My mission is to provide affirming, celebratory, anti-oppressive counseling to all my clients, but especially my clients who are BIPOC, queer, gender-expansive, in non-traditional relationships, and/or have chronic health conditions or disabilities. Our personhood and intersectional identities are always with us. It’s impossible to fully separate the personal from the professional. Therefore my practice works out of the belief that therapy is political on purpose. I believe that as counselors we have an obligation to dismantle systems of oppression that ourselves and our clients are forced to live under and that starts in our work together.
As a therapist I not only welcome but celebrate all the “stuff” that comes with my clients’ identities and I will work within my professional role and in my personal life to advocate for the needs of my clients living in marginalized communities. Which is why I operate from a body positive, sex positive, Health At Every Size, social justice, anti-oppression, and allyship framework.
