MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

my approach

one one one sessions

My one on one sessions are weekly 50 minute sessions held virtually via zoom. Please note, that due to my non-licensure status, I am able to provide abolitionist mental health care meaning that I do not utilize police in mental health crisis. Instead, I opt for a community care model. In order to be eligible for my services, clients must be able to identify 3-5 people in their lives that can serve as active emergency contacts in loo of the police. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about this process.

group sessions

Transgender BIPOC support groups are open to all non-white folks of all non-cis genders. Groups are held weekly for one hour. Groups typically have between 5-10 participants a session. Group capacity is capped at 10 participants in order for everyone to be able to participate. While I welcome folks of ALL personalities, my facilitation style centers on those that are shy, are working on their self-esteem and confidence, and those that process slower than others. Whoever you are, there will be space for you to speak and be heard.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

my approach

one one one sessions

Finding a counselor that matches your identities and politics can be traumatizing as QTBIPOC. To be courageous enough to seek help  only to be met with someone who hasn't done the work to unlearn their ideas around heteronormativity and internalized whiteness can be painful. As a peer counselor, my priority is creating a space where you feel affirmed, seen, and respected. I work from a trauma informed lens that de-centers the DSM and celebrates neurodiversity. I am queer, trans, kink, and polyam affirming. I believe in developing respectful counselor-client relationships that foster growth and healing.
