***CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I am a client-centered, trauma-informed practicing queer social worker. I specialize in clinical practice; however, I also engage in researching and connecting appropriate community services and supports to my clients who identify in need. I am committed to serving diverse communities as a social worker and advocate. I specialize in serving and supporting LQBTQ2s identifying folks with a focus on transgender and non-binary/gender fluid identifying folks. Moreover, I have years of experience aiding individuals with disabilities, dual diagnosis, and mental health; specifically mood disorders.

I have extensive experience working with individuals who endure the societal stigma of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. Further, I work with individuals from diverse backgrounds who struggle with mental health, dual diagnosis, learning disabilities, stress and trauma. I assist in aiding with goal planning & setting.

I provide individuals with the space to be free of judgment and discrimination when sharing thoughts/feelings. When working with clients, I utilize systems theory to be able to better understand their situations, health, issues, families, communities, and influences. Further, I employ strengths-based and holistic approaches to aid in clients' recovery.
