Explore common questions below.

  • What does it mean to have an anti-oppressive/social justice lens as a therapist?
    I am always learning to more deeply integrate anti-oppressive values into my practice, as a business owner and as a healer. This goes into everything from my fee structure to the programs and platforms I use in my business, and most importantly to how I engage with my clients in sessions. As Grace Lee Boggs said, “Transform yourself to transform the world.” I believe my work as a therapist is a large part of my role in creating the next world, a liberated world. I know I always have more to learn and I engage in continuing education and consultation to keep growing in my liberatory practices. I have so much more to say on this, so seriously please feel free to reach out even just to talk about this question if you’d like!
  • What should I expect from therapy with you?
    You can expect me, a wise and messy human, to sit with you and walk with you (metaphorically and sometimes literally) on your path to heal. To work toward healing ancestral, intergenerational, and personal trauma; and to come home to yourself, your highest self. This does not happen overnight, and it will take significant investment. It can be hard work to heal, but it’s the most gratifying and beautiful work you will do for yourself, and for the world. You can expect me to be human and make mistakes, though I am incredibly open to feedback and I will always do my best to keep learning to do better.
  • What insurance do you take?
    I have a handful of Medicaid spots and otherwise do not accept insurance. I do work with an organization that will do the work for you to get your out-of-network benefit with private insurance, which is typically around 40-60% of your session fee. I recommend this article if you’re curious about insurance and out-of-network coverage: How Out-Of-Network Benefits Can Save You Money.
  • What days do you see clients?
    I see clients Tuesdays-Saturdays. Saturdays are typically for folks who work jobs that make a weekday session inaccessible.
  • How are you navigating COVID-19 and infectious disease?
    My approach centers disabled and immuno-compromised folks as deeply valuable members of our communities. As such, I offer both in-person and virtual sessions, and I am currently continuing to use and require masks for in-person sessions. I have chosen to get vaccinated and aim to stay updated on best practices to keep everyone as safe as possible.
  • Tell me more about your anticapitalist fee structure.
    Running a business as an anticapitalist is inevitably dissonant and challenging. Our current dysfunctional capitalist society does require I make money to survive, and as someone who believes pleasure and thriving are essential to creating the next world, I aim not to only survive. However, I never strive to have more than I need, and I deeply believe in mutual aid and community care. That being said, I offer pro bono and sliding scale, as well as contributor level fees (higher than my standard rate) for folks who have the means to contribute to me being able to sustainably offer lower sliding scale fee and pro bono services. I strive to benefit my clients as much as possible while thriving in my own life. I share my yearly income (both business and take-home) with my clients at their request for transparency.
  • What are your qualifications?
    Most importantly, I’m a human with my own full and complex life. While I deeply value learning (it’s like, my whole thing), I don’t support gatekeeping based on ivory tower education. All that being said, I have a Bachelors in Psychology with a certificate in neuroscience from University of Colorado and a Masters in Social Work with a concentration in family systems from University of Denver. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I’ve been trained in PACT Level 1 with Stan Tatkin and EMDR with the Maiberger Institute. I’ve read countless books and attended countless trainings on liberatory praxis and creating the next world.
