About

In life, it can be easy to lose yourself or feel "stuck" by past/present traumas and events, but it's possible to find yourself again or even find yourself for the first time. Even today's political climate can wreak havoc on your mental health. I believe that you are the expert on you and you deserve to thrive and feel safe. I strive to create a judgment-free space for my clients and work with you to achieve your goals. Together, we will take a strengths-based approach to meet you where you are, not where you think you "should" be. I also try to find humor in everyday life and use science-based education as it's relevant to you.
I have had success, and a passion for, working with people who live with anxiety issues (GAD), PTSD/C-PTSD, body image issues, sexual trauma, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, depression (MDD), suicidal ideation, relationship/peer issues, learning healthy coping skills, and above all showing yourself self-compassion and acceptance.
As of 11/18/2022 I have a waitlist for new clients. If you are interested in being added to my waitlist, please feel free to email me! My availability changes from month to month!
