“You do not have to be me in order for us to fight alongside each other”- Audre Lorde
My 10 years of experience as a youth worker and community organizer has inspired me to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I view my role as working in collaboration alongside you during your healing journey. As a queer and non binary healer, I believe in creating a space where you can be your full and authentic self.
While working together you can expect validation, authenticity and kindness. My approach to therapy is inspired by radical self-love and trauma-informed care. I am open to our meetings being as open or as structured as you see fit, to ensure that your needs are being met.
As a therapist I value autonomy and empowerment. I utilize anti-oppression frameworks to inform the ways in which society plays a role in both individual and community trauma. I am inspired by human resilience and I see you as a whole person, not a diagnosis. My speciality areas include: LGBTQIA+, gender identity/gender expansiveness, harm reduction, trauma, pregnancy options and post abortion support.
I graduated with my MSW from the University of Michigan and have since had experience working with families, individuals and couples providing therapy. I also bring experience in community based services, outreach, and case management. I have worked with people who have a wide range of diagnoses and ages. As a certified OD educator, I provide a trauma+harm reduction approach to substance use treatment.
