My approach

I draw from approaches that are evidence-based, trauma-informed, strengths-centered, and anti-oppressive. My work strives to be anti-racist, gender- and sexuality-affirming, disability justice focused, accessible, and inclusive of different ways of thinking, knowing, and believing.

I believe everyone has a story to tell. Sometimes that story needs re-authoring to bring about new meaning and freedom from the ways you may have been hurt.

After life-changing events or experiencing deep loss, sometimes we may lose cherished parts of our humanity: our passions, our self-worth, our imaginations, our senses of humor, our convictions, our values, and our voices. As you move towards healing and greater freedom, I will accompany and work alongside you; we may explore past and present experiences, world views, and relationships, and co-learn what brings purpose, color, texture to your life.

“It is unearned love–the love that goes before, that greets us on the way. It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and most charming charm have failed you. Grace is the light or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there.”
