The path of healing is rewarding and intimidating, and seeking the best therapist for your needs is challenging work.
Creating a warm and welcoming environment is what I consider key to being able to better explore what you decide to bring into the room. I work with clients in exploring all aspects of their identities so that they can leave the therapy space better able to live fuller, more enriching lives. My main priority with clients is the quality of our relationship; building and deepening this connection by celebrating clients' strengths and victories, and being my honest and authentic self as their therapist.
My work is centered around neurodiversity and gender affirming care, helping clients process lifelong trauma, and empowering chronic people-pleasers to prioritize loving themselves. Clients can expect to work on ADHD support and management, emotion regulation and processing, Mindfulness, Identity exploration, and shaping their life story. I use the science of trauma-informed care to help client's all the way down to their nervous system--and explain my process every step of the way.
As someone with an ADHD brain, I know just how difficult it can be to find someone that is open to understand your experience in the world. I consider it a privilege to be given to chance to witness what clients bring into session and experience some of their journey with them. This is why I try to bring my very real and flawed self into the room; neurodivergent people know when someone is pretending! I aim for neurodivergent clients to accept themselves as who they are and learn to work with themselves, instead of against.
Being Non-Binary myself, I have enjoyed assisting client's in exploring their gender identity and self-expression, and how these parts of ourselves are influenced by a world that wants us to be cisgender. I understand what it feels like to rarely "fit in" with the other kids and to be expected to be something you are not. I actively view my practice as a therapist as a way to resist patriarchal standards, and sharing your experience is your way of rebelling against those who want you to keep the best parts of yourself hidden.
Please reach out you’d like to chat more about how we could work together to accomplish your goals. I look forward to it!
