What do I treat?

I have cared for clients with a wide variety of diagnoses and concerns. In particular, I treat the following:

Please note that I do not treat people who are actively self-harming, engaging in other parasuicidal behavior, or ambivalent about recovery from substance use or eating disorders, as these concerns are best treated with more support than I can offer at the outpatient level.

Who do I work with?

My clients have wide-ranging, diverse backgrounds. I am experienced in discussing and treating concerns pertaining to all identity factors, including gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, immigration status, neurodivergence (including ADHD and ASD), ability, socioeconomic status/class, and relational identity (including poly and kink community members). Intersections of identity factors and conflict with oppressive systems are common topics in conversation with clients.

I am direct and honest about my own identities and the impact they can have in the therapeutic relationship; this begins with consistently acknowledging the white, patriarchal, Westernized, colonized history of therapy. I carefully balance the fact that I must always be learning with my clients' need for skilled care; while I certainly learn from my clients, I will not put you in a position where you need to educate me.

I believe that culturally competent therapy is a minimum standard. I am committed to treating identity and oppression with the humility and gravity they deserve. Please feel welcome to ask me about this when we meet.
