The impact of collective, historic and public events on lives marginalized by dominant cultures often goes unrecognized. Especially for women, LGBT and queer-identified people, people of color and other people marginalized by dominant power paradigms, the body is often a site of cultural dislocation. By working directly with the cultural messages and lessons that have been integrated, often unconsciously, onto the body and psyche, we can begin to create new stories, meanings and choices about being members of our communities and cultures. In my psychotherapy practice I work with people of all genders in the exploration of relationships to the self, to others, and to the communities in which we live. I have extensive experience working with queer, genderqueer, activist, and multicultural communities, queer parents and prospective parents, as well as kink/BDSM and poly communities, and the spaces where these identities overlap. I also teach queer and multicultural psychology and supervise students beginning their clinical fieldwork.
