Description

If you’re used to numbing out or criticizing yourself to get through the hard times – we’ll do it differently. Therapy with me is a judgment-free space to bring your sorrow, anxiety, anger and confusion without having to hide it or push through on your own.
I bring two decades of meditation practice including nine years as a Buddhist monastic and an expressive arts practice along my own experiences of surviving cancer and being a queer, gender-fluid person.
I use talk therapy, mindfulness, somatic therapy and an anti-oppression lens to help you find what works in your real life.
