Rian (they/them or she/her) is an intersectional feminist, psychotherapist, activist, musician, cosplayer, full-time nerd, and devoted cat person.
As a psychotherapist, Rian owns and operates a private practice that specializes in services for LGBTQ persons and POC. Rooted in systems theory and social justice, Rian is passionate about empowering marginalized others to find and speak their truth in the context of a restrictive and often frightening socio-political climate.
Rian brings an eclectic collection of therapeutic modalities, ranging from the Depth tradition, which explores the realm of the unconscious, to skill-based modalities, including; cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, distress tolerance, present-centered, awareness, self-regulation, and conflict resolution. Outside of the therapy office, Rian plays hard: writing and performing music, practicing martial arts, participating in nerdy conventions as a cosplayer and panelist, and seeking adventure in the form of friends, food, and travel.
