As a therapist, I work with professional women who have chronic pain and/or chronic illnesses, many of whom have experienced some combination of being ignored, misdiagnosed, and gaslighted. I’m passionate about raising awareness of how ableism, sexism, racism, fatphobia, and various other systems of oppression affect our clients and about inspiring therapists to actively work to dismantle those systems. When our clients tell us this is happening, we need to believe them. If you’re also passionate about dismantling systems of oppression, we could be a good fit for supervision. I’m a feminist therapist, which means that I believe the personal is political and that I’m committed to identifying power imbalances—and eliminating them whenever possible. I’m an eclectic therapist, taking what works from several modalities and leaving the rest.
On a more personal note, I’m a white, smallfat, disabled/chronically ill, bisexual, cis woman. I’m an extrovert who loves most events where there’s food. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve watched The Golden Girls all the way through, and I don’t know what I would have done without them in the early days of the pandemic. I’m a night owl, and I wilt in the heat—which I define as anything above 70 degrees. I’m an adult third culture kid (TCK) who grew up in Thailand (I did a lot of wilting in the heat as a child!), so I’m deeply familiar with the push-pull of needing frequent change and adventure while also longing for the comfort and stability of a home I never had.
