I’m honored to serve the Rainbow Health Center community through facilitating Loved Ones, a six-week free support and learning group for family, friends, and partners of transgender, non-binary, gender nonconforming, and gender-neutral people. Loved Ones is a safe space to ask questions. Attendees are invited to share information and personal experiences. We honor love, complexity, and learning.
If you are impacted by your loved one’s gender identity or medical transition, this group is for you.
Join us weekly or drop-in:
Saturdays, 2:30pm - 4:00pm
10/19, 11/9, 11/16, 11/23, 12/7, 12/14
I am a graduate degree candidate of the Masters of Arts in Counseling program at St. Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Consciousness Studies from The Evergreen State College in 2007.
My Master’s work specializations include anti-oppression, art and expressive art therapies, disability and neurodiversity, human sexuality, gender, and relationship counseling. I have received training in anti-oppression, narrative therapy, group therapy, family systems therapy, developmental psychology, substance abuse assessment and treatment, domestic violence, suicide prevention, disordered eating, relationships, sex therapy, psychodrama, and professional counseling ethics. I earned by Bachelor’s Degree in Consciousness Studies from The Evergreen State College in 2007; my undergraduate training in ecopsychology, mindfulness, lucid dreaming, neuropsychology, and non-western practices informs my clinical approach.
My practice is largely informed by anti-oppressive and humanistic-existential frameworks. I am professionally trained in and have experience serving a variety of populations: children age 2+, teens, trans-identified and genderqueer youth and adults, LGBTQIA+ populations, communities of color, disabled and neurodivergent folks, couples, veterans, elders, people struggling with housing, people surviving domestic violence, and people with highly varied spiritual orientations and worldviews. Much of my academic and professional journey is rooted in serving sexual minorities, including the kink and fetish community, sexworkers, people who engage in consensual power exchange, and polyamorous/non-monogamous individuals and families. I have experience in assisting clients with healing from religious abuse, participation in cults, or otherwise working through changes in belief systems. I have special interests in disability access and advocacy, and I am an enthusiastic educator and advocate in these areas.
I provide services at no cost in my temporary role as a practicum student therapist at the Rainbow Health Center. My group, Loved Ones, is free to attend. Please click the pdf link below for more details about group meetings.
