About

Immediate openings! I am a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) and working toward becoming a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). My passion lies in working with individuals, families, and couples by utilizing EMDR, harm reduction, trauma-responsive care, and culturally affirming therapy to help people embrace recovery from a holistic approach. I have specialization with survivors of complex trauma, neurodiversity, LGBTQ+, dissociation, substance use, self-esteem concerns, chronic illness, non-monogamy, self-harm, and eating disorders. I come from a multicultural background and am a queer and trans clinician.
I am trained in numerous therapeutic methods to help people manage symptoms and discover their hope from within to achieve their recovery goals. Ultimately, the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of healing, and I use a collaborative approach in therapy to honor this and your needs.
My main approaches as a therapist are anti-racism, intersectional feminism, sex-positivity, anti-diet, disability justice, and radical self-love. Lastly, I do have a service dog (pit/lab mix) who helps me and I can happily accommodate your needs regarding this.
