I also have experience and am dedicated to serving members of the LGBTQIA + community.
Everyone walks through life holding on to things that shape how we view ourselves and our world. Over time, the weight of these experiences builds and can become heavy, sometimes unbearably so. Even though many people want to feel this weight lifted, they often don’t know where to start. For others, the fear of sharing the “burden” of their experience with another can be debilitating. If you are scared of being a “burden,” know that you do not have to shoulder your pain alone. In our sessions, you are free and encouraged to share your feelings and discuss your experiences in a safe and nonjudgmental space.

Pastoral Counselor, MDiv, BCPC
As someone who is LGBTQ and grew up in the evangelical church, I know what it's like to be a spiritual person but also feel misunderstood by others.
Are you experiencing a deconstruction of your faith? Are you afraid of losing your friends, family, and community if you reevaluate your beliefs and are honest about who you are? If you grew up in a context that was not accepting or didn't allow you to think for yourself, it can cause a lot of internal conflict. I can help create a safe, sacred place where you can explore questions and concerns that you were not allowed to express or explore in the past. I am comfortable discussing difficult topics and have a passion to help others through the angst, struggle, and confusion that often comes with life.

I work in the LGBTQ + community; with recovering people; with families impacted by addiction; with those trying to break free of exploitation and and traumatic bonding.
Based in Phoenix, I work with clients around the country and the world as licensing allows, including via Telehealth. I'm so glad you're here. The world can feel like an inhospitable home at times. Relationships can be unsettled, self-medicating can dominate, and the past can haunt like a persistent familiar ghost. Healing is necessary, because you are necessary. No matter how you may struggle - there is no one else quite like you, you are the very best at being you, you possess gifts and magic that only you can bring to the world. Therapy is about coming home to yourself - your physical body, emotional body or heart, and mind.

My clinical experience includes working with individuals, families, Depression, PTSD, Gender Identity/ LGBTQ support, Anxiety, Bipolar, Personality Disorders, relationship conflict, addiction, and more.
Life, our past, conflict, and all of the demands we face day-to-day can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, depressed, angry, and sometimes even hopeless. It does not have to be like that. Change is possible. Changing how you feel about yourself, your relationships, and your life is possible! When we feel our best - we show up as our best self in all areas of life; at home, in our relationships, in our work, and everywhere else we find ourselves.

As a queer , person of color, I believe in creating a non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space to assist clients in creating a life that they love. Due to the pandemic, many of us have had more time for reflection than we might have had in the past. Maybe this time of reflection has caused you to question your identity, gender or sexuality. Exploring and integrating your gender or sexually can feel overwhelming, especially in a world that can be hostile to LGBT / Queer people, but you do not have to do it alone. Seeking help takes courage. You are courageous.

I work with teenagers and young adults ages 13-25 who are on a journey of self-discovery. I specialize in mood disorders (i.e., depression, bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders, self-harm and suicidal ideation, trauma, and LGBTQ + affirming therapy. I believe we often reach for whatever we can find to cope, even if those strategies hurt us in the long run. The good news is, if behaviors can be learned, they can be replaced. My clients are learning to live authentically and cope with the challenges thrown at them throughout life. I believe every life is valuable, every emotion or conflict is valid, and we can heal through connection.

I particularly assist with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, interpersonal and relational issues, and trauma healing. While I have experience supporting clients of many backgrounds, I am especially passionate about working with LGBTQIA + clients, and clients who are experiencing religious deconstruction/loss and the unique grief that comes with it. My preferred method of therapy is a combination of ACT and Existential models, helping clients to explore meaning and connect to themselves.

We want to be able to build a life full of love and compassion for ourselves with the confidence to handle any of life's challenges. Yet, when we struggle with our mental health we can feel so alone and isolated without the ability to see a way out. It doesn't always have to feel that way and together we can find your path, put yourself back in the narrative, and create the life you desire. I enjoy working with adolescents, young adults, the LGBTQ community, and any neurodiverse individual looking for support with depression, anxiety, relationships, boundaries, life balance and more.
