About

My ideal client comes from many backgrounds, walks of life, and presents with many issues. You see, I have worked with traumatic stress disorders, substance use disorders, self-harm, and mood disorders. I have offered expert consultation for children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples. I have a strong background working with adolescents and adults in the LGBTQIA+ community specializing in gender trauma and other traumas associated within the LGBTQIA+ community facilitating group therapy and individual sessions. My clients come to me looking to be heard and wanting to move forward in their lives.
My belief is that rapport and honesty is important to establishing a trusting and autonomous therapist-client relationship. I am enthusiastic about destigmatizing mental health, boosting cultural awareness within mental health, working with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) programming, and incorporating telehealth technology to ease access.
You have taken the most challenging step in overcoming your problems which is to admit you have a problem and to search for help. I promise to work tirelessly with you to set positive, achievable goals and work on practical skills to help you overcome obstacles in your life. I am excited about walking with you in your healing journey!
