Relationship to Self & Others
I invite you to join me on an adventure to heal your relationship with yourself and with others. It takes courage to initiate therapy and step into the unknown.
As your therapist I will act as a guide to help you navigate new territories of change. A professor once told me that good therapy has a balance of safety and challenge. I will be there to help you feel safe while exploring your thoughts and feelings and will gently challenge you to confront your internal resistance to growth and change.
I am LGBTQ affirming and practice from a Health At Every Size (HAES) lens.
Moving Into Connection
Emotional distancing, intimacy issues, difficulty communicating, and conflict are common problems that couples face. As your therapist I will act as a compassionate witness and guide to help you navigate through problems and find deeper connection and satisfaction in your relationship.
I welcome couples of all genders and sexual expressions, including: LGBTQ, kinky, non-monogamous, polyamorous, and other alternative forms of relationships.
In my couples work I also see siblings, friends, and parent-child pairs who want to strengthen their relationships.
Big Bodies Unbound: Abandoning Shame & Embracing Life
New group beginning Thursday, November 8th, 7:30pm-9pm
This group will focus on body liberation and self-acceptance, through a Health at Every Size lens. The specific goals of this group will be defined by members, but are expected to focus on building self-compassion, releasing feelings of shame and guilt, recognizing and challenging societal hostility, healing relationships with self and others, and re-engaging with the lives we want to lead. The group will culminate in a member-selected capstone activity to celebrate the work and set the tone for living a freer life.
Past groups I've led have included topics like:
Disordered eating & body image issues
Recovering from trauma
Empowerment and communication
