I welcome clients from varied backgrounds, with a particular passion for working with those who have experienced marginalization and disenfranchisement including, but not limited to:
the queer, lesbian, gay and bisexual communities
mixed race and multiracial people
people of color
transgender, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, and non-binary folks
people involved in alternative relationship configurations and sexualities, including Kink/BDSM and polyamory
fat people/people of size.
I bring a background in social justice activism and organizing and my own experiences with oppression allow me to bring a sensitivity to how being different in the world can impact one’s inner experience and relationships with self and others. My personal cultural experiences give me particular competence working with people of Asian descent and those who come from mixed race backgrounds. While my experiences may not be identical to yours, I welcome the opportunity to explore your goals and challenges through a respectful and compassionate lens informed by social justice thinking.
I work with many different issues, but have particular interest and experience in the following challenges:
impacts of oppression
needs of social justice activists and organizers
trauma and PTSD
childhood experiences of neglect
adult children of alcoholics or other substance abusers
life and career transitions
