Birch Snogles, LLMFT

I graduated from Antioch University with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I see people and their experiences within the context of larger systems and have an understanding of how many of those systems can be oppressive and cause the very problems clients seek therapy for.

I take a non-pathologizing approach to therapy and believe that clients are the experts of their own lives. Working within a harm reduction framework I am able to truly meet clients where they are at and join them in their healing journey. I work with individuals, families, couples and partners of all ages. I am kink knowledgeable and have experience working with polyamorous and open relationship structures. I am sex positive and provide an affirming and safer space for sex workers.

I have experience working with transgender children and adolescents and their families, as well as transgender adults. Taking a collaborative approach, I have experience navigating medical transition with clients and take an active role in coordinating care. I also work with families and partners looking to better understand and support their queer, trans, and non-binary loved ones.

I practice from a narrative therapy framework and locate the “problem” outside of the individual. Approaching therapy from an intersectional feminist and collaborative framework, I am interested in alternatives to the mental health industrial complex and aim to work toward the de-stigmatization of mental health services.
