Professional statement

Talia creates an open and curious therapy environment – no matter where we begin, no matter where our work takes us and no matter what comes up along the way. We are so many things all at once – a constellation of moving parts, none of which are disposable. We all deserve to have our humanity and the complexity of our beings honored, admired, and supported.

Queer liberation and body liberation are central to her practice and Talia works with folks anywhere on their journey with flexibility and wholeheartedness. No person is disposable and shame will never liberate us or our communities.

Talia is passionate about working with people healing oppression based trauma, religious trauma and transgenerational trauma through an intersectional framework. She is skilled in working with folks through grief and loss, relationships and intimacy, body liberation and body distress, and in transforming the inner critic. Talia's style is interactive, non-judgmental, and positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go.


Message to clients

While healing isn’t linear, there is some structure to my approach that I conceptualize as building a home. My initial goal is to build with you a foundation of trust and mutual understanding, which then makes room for us to explore the nuances of your experiences and challenges and notice patterns. Building your coping toolbox is like scaffolding - providing structure and support for you both in and outside of session. With the scaffolding in place and a strong foundation we work to make meaning, address self-blame and internalized oppression and build self understanding and compassion. In tandem with this we work together on fostering community, engaging in collective healing and strengthening relationships. To conclude our work together we focus on learning how to lovingly steward your life with strength and tenderness.

I center curiousity and gentleness, justice and liberation and honor pleasure and rest in my work with clients. I hold the social work code of ethics near and dear to my work, and am always striving to approach the work with cultural humility and active anti oppressive frameworks. I encourage you to share feedback with me frequently and I aim to always be transparent, address when I misstep and not be afraid to say “I don’t know”. As a white person in this work and living in a white supremacist society, it is my responsibility to actively engage with my internalized racism and commit to ongoing learning and accountability in and outside of the therapy room.
