Tucson Counseling Associates
I studied at the Kinsey Institute- a renowned school for the study of sexuality and gender. This lead me to specializing in counseling LGBTQIA2S+ people, as well as people in alternative relationship models (ethical non-monogamy/polyamory). As a new mother, I’m passionate about working with people experiencing perinatal and postpartum issues.
My therapeutic style is informed by intersectional feminism and social justice, seeking to collectively dismantle systems of violence and oppression. I believe many of the dis-ease in our lives is rooted in a normal response to a broken system that is then pathologized and stigmatized. I believe any problematic behavior is a symptom of a deeper-rooted problem that needs to be addressed rather than the cause of the concern. I have an eclectic and intuitive approach that invites collaboration with the inner healing intelligence of everyone I work with.
My approach is to address the core negative self-beliefs (often established in early childhood) that adversely impact one’s relationship with self and others. I believe that given an accepting, affirming, and nonjudgmental space, people can gain the courage to remember their own inherent worth, reclaim their inner wisdom and empower themselves to make changes. In my work, I often discuss the systems in which we are all operating in, how they impact us and how we might impact them. I am also passionate about psychedelic assisted therapy and view these medicines as sacred tools that can help us gain new insights into ourselves, the world around us, and help generate a future where we all feel more free.
