I am a queer, nonbinary therapist offering individual teletherapy sessions for adults in the state of Ohio. It is important to me that you feel accepted, valued, and comfortable being yourself, no matter where you are in your journey. I welcome all diverse individuals, expressions, and identities. It is a vulnerable step to talk to a therapist, and I appreciate your openness to giving therapy a try. I have a relationship-based and collaborative approach to therapy. I look forward to hearing what is important to you and working together to reach your goals.
I often work with, and enjoy working with, gender and sexual minorities, intersecting identities, immigrants and refugees, perinatal and postnatal mental health, complex trauma, dissociation, and neurodivergent populations. I have the most experience in providing therapy for adults experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, and life transitions.
I have an anti-oppressive approach to therapy, meaning I approach therapy from the lens that racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, fatphobia, and most other people-directed-phobias are systems of oppression that cause injury and/or trauma. I use a trauma informed, trauma responsive, and mindfulness based approach to treatment. I have training in evidence-based therapy modalities that we may use as needed, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Other perspectives that inform my practice include person centered therapy, gender affirming care, LBGQ+ and TGNC affirming therapy, strengths based therapy, feminist theory, and the mind-body-spirit connection. I was trained in EMDR by the Institute for Creative Mindfulness. Read more about these approaches to therapy under our Frequently Asked Questions.
I recognize that as a white queer nonbinary therapist, I am both privileged as a white person, and to pass as a straight cisgender woman. I work hard to maintain a safe and knowledgeable space and am mindful of my position of privilege and the impact in the therapeutic environment. I participate in ongoing learning to stay up to date on cultural topics that may affect your life and to advance my knowledge of best practices in therapy. I welcome feedback on what works best for you.
