Calli prides their self on their cultural humility and the way they strive to meet their clients where they are to empower them to achieve their goals. They recognize the unique experience of human life and the different paths people take. Calli recognizes that no one has the same experiences, and their lives can be influenced by many things such as their race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and abilities and the way these multiple identities interact. Calli respects this by taking an intersectional feminist approach. Calli views therapy as an opportunity to help clients grow, learn and value their self and their experiences. They like to be creative in therapy, recognizing that nothing is a one-size-fits-all.
Calli has had experience working with diverse individuals on a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, adjustment, and trauma. Calli recognizes there is a strong societal bias against people of size. They feel that there are so many negative experiences in life as a fat person, the therapy room should never be one for anybody. Calli recognizes body image issues can cause a ripple effect on life satisfaction and can address that in the therapy room. They hope to make any client feel comfortable discussing anything they need to, even those societal taboo topics. Calli also works with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and other individuals on issues regarding identity and the frequent mismatch between one’s lived reality and society’s expectation of them.
Calli holds degrees in psychology and human sexuality studies. Their past research includes self-injury within the queer community and the kink community
Calli currently only takes sliding scale and self-pay clients.
