Women who want more to life


 

I love working with women. Some themes I have noticed working with women are: feelings of taking up too much space, people pleasing, difficulty setting boundaries, difficulty expressing needs, and a strong inner critic. 

I create a compassionate yet no bullshit space for women to show up as their full selves. I'll often encourage women to imagine what their "villain" self would do- ask for a raise? Say "no"? Leave work on time? Together we can dream up a new way of being in the world where you don't have to hide your true desires. 

Doctors, nurses and first responders

Folks in the medical or first responder field often feel like they are in charge of life and death-- and they literally are! Despite the fulfilling nature of these careers, they can also lead to depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

 

I was raised by medical professionals, and so I know working in those fields is both wonderful and overwhelmingly stressful. I am skilled at holding space for folks struggling with how to process the immense weight of the helping professions, and find great satisfaction in enabling doctors and first responders help others.

Unconventional families

 

I am particularly skilled at helping polyamorous and queer couples and families. 

In family therapy, I especially enjoy working with adult children and their parents. We may work on establishing and honoring boundaries, addressing past trauma and harm, and/or re-establishing a relationship after estrangement.

I can also work with family members towards greater understanding of queer and trans issues, and help families with coming out processes.

Queer, trans, non-binary and gender expansive clients

I feel particularly capable of supporting queer folks who are struggling with:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Intimacy issues and relationship struggles

  • Gender transition and exploration

  • Mood swings and big emotions

  • The intersecting identities of race, gender, immigration status, disability, and class

  • Internalized homophobia, biphobia and transphobia

  • Self-harm

  • Grief and loss

  • Trauma and attachment wounding

  • Existential malaise and/or spiritual despair
