“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”
― James Baldwin
"The kind of change we are after is cellular as well as institutional, is personal and intimate, is collective as well as cultural. We are making love synonymous with justice.
“When we liberate ourselves from the expectation that we must have all things figured out, we enter a sanctuary of empathy.”
― Sonya Renee Taylor
Whether you a new to therapy or returning for a new perspective, I'm excited you're here.
I pull from a variety of theories and methods to support each client based on their needs, making use of Attachment Theory, Body Liberation, Disability Justice, elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Embodiment, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Feminist Theory, Harm Reduction, elements of Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness-based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Nonviolent Communication, elements of Somatic Therapy, and Trauma Therapy.
I offer 50-minute telehealth therapy sessions to folks living in Washington State on an ongoing basis, usually weekly or bi-weekly. I'm not able to see clients when they are traveling outside of Washington State.
What is a "Consult Call"?
A consult call is an opportunity for us to determine if we might be a good fit in working together. It is a chance for you to ask questions, get a sense of how I work, and learn what support I'm able to offer. Please note:
A consult call is NOT therapy.
My style and scope will not be the right fit for everyone, so I invite you to be honest with yourself and with me about your needs and expectations.
I will be honest about my skills and abilities, accurately convey what sessions might look like, and would be happy to offer you referrals if you find that I am not the best fit for you at this time.
My priority is to honor your self-determination and ensure you get the support that feels most fulfilling to you.
Anxiety, depression, and mood disorders
Burnout, stress management, and coping skills
Dissociation and developing body trust
Family of origin concerns
Gender identity exploration
Historical and intergenerational trauma
Polyamorous and Open Relationships
Life transitions and adjustment
Racial and cultural identity, immigrant experiences
Sense of self, self-worth, and self-esteem
Therapy for care providers, social workers, therapists, activists, and emotional laborers
Violence recovery (domestic, intimate partner, sexual, systemic)
Work on past self relationships (inner child, teen, young adult)
I am committed to make therapy accessible to communities who have historically been socioeconomically disadvantaged, to that end, I offer sliding scale options for those who need it.
For those who can afford therapy at cost, I charge $80-$120 per 50-minute session.
If you believe I might be a good fit for you and cost seems to be a barrier, please reach out!
I am happy to share my sliding scale availability or collaborate with you to find resources to help cover therapy costs, such as the National Queer & Trans Therapists of Color Network Mental Health Fund or Open Path Collective.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: Not yet, however, I am happy to provide a "superbill" which clients can use to seek partial reimbursement from their insurance provider depending on their "Out-of-Network" benefits.
Q: Do you provide letters for gender affirming care?
A: It is one of the greatest joys of my work to be able to support folks access gender affirming care! I have experience writing letters on behalf of clients seeking gender affirming care and see this as a collaborative effort, a way to tell your story to the degree you feel comfortable, while still meeting needs of gender affirming care providers and insurance companies.
Q: Can you prescribe medication?
A: My training, experience, and license do not allow me to prescribe medication. However, I am interested in knowing if and what medications my clients are on so that I can help support clients to monitor effectiveness, side-effects, and self-advocate with a provider who does prescribe medication.
Q: Can you help me find another provider who might be a better fit?
A: Absolutely! Everyone arrives to therapy with different needs, and providers all come with their own skills and experiences. I will be a great fit for some and for others I may not be be able to meet specific needs. I work to cultivate a network of providers that I can refer folks to, especially providers who can meet needs that I can't. I'm happy to help find the best fit for you.
