I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor practicing in Massachusetts, land belonging to the Wampanoag tribe, and North Carolina, belonging to the Eno and Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation.
I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people, and I believe each person holds with wisdom they seek to find peace and contentment.
I believe all bodies are good bodies.
The lenses I utilize in therapy are anti-oppression, anti-colonial, relational cultural, and a deep trust in the body wisdom each person holds.
Modalities I utilize flexibly and interchangeably include relational, person centered, attachment informed, somatic, trauma informed, IFS, CBT, DBT, and ACT.
I am an intersectional feminist.
I promote Health at Every Size®, Size Acceptance, Fat Positivity, and Body Liberation
I earned a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University, and Bachelor's Degree in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies from Oberlin College.
I have completed Level 1 of the Embodied Recovery Training, a trauma-informed, relationally oriented, and somatically integrative approach to the treatment of eating disorders that draws from the latest research in traumatology, interpersonal neurobiology, and child development.
I am a 200 hour Certified Yoga Teacher through Wonder Yoga in Arlington, MA. As a yoga instructor, my goal is to facilitate a space where you can be curious and compassionate within your body. I aim to help you find a sense of groundedness and vitality through the act of gentle movement, assist you in making meaning of your relationship between mind, body, and heart, and developing a sense of embodiment. I am passionate about honoring the roots of this ancient Indian practice.
