Be kind to yourself. Those were the four words an old therapist used to say at the end of our sessions. He helped me find my way to becoming a therapist, and I’ve carried the phrase with me, sharing it with my clients now. It sounds so simple, but I know it’s easier said than done. Therapy is hard work, and it’s kinda weird at first, especially if you’re new to it. I like to borrow from my own experiences as a client, queer person, and trained professional to connect with and understand my clients.

Providing an inclusive space that welcomes and celebrates the multitude of intersecting identities is important to me. I am driven by social justice values, committed to anti-racism, and practice queer-affirming care. I invite feedback, therapists can make mistakes too, and value processing the unique therapeutic relationship that develops with each client.
