Hope is not easy or cheap. It is true. —John Green
I specialize in gender-based traumas such as domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault. As a feminist therapist, I believe traumas such as these are not isolated incidents, but rather facets of an oppressive society that is deeply patriarchal, sexist, and misogynistic. Outside of the therapy room, I actively work to dismantle the patriarchy and end rape culture and victim-blaming. I am drawn to this work not only because of my passion for women's rights but as a survivor myself, I want to ensure you feel safe, heard, and understood. I believe there is healing in having a supportive, listening ear as you sit with and process the grief, anger, and sorrow that often accompany traumas such as these. Although healing from trauma is often arduous and rarely a linear process, I wish to support you as you find healing, empowerment, and hope.
