As a proud member of the LGBTQ community, I work with those who feel alone, different, bullied, abandoned, and afraid.
Are you feeling stuck in your life? Are you ready for a change for the better? Then let me help you. I work with people who feel unfulfilled and dissatisfied; people who feel frustrated in their ability to connect with others or themselves; people who feel ashamed, inauthentic, blocked, or unable to live to their fullest potential.

LGBTQ + individuals from conservative families struggle to live their truth. Immigrant families navigate culture clashes. Gender affirming care using the World Professional Association for Transgender Health Standards of Care (WPATH-SOC) is imperative. Partners from different cultural backgrounds may want support to understand family dynamics and planning. Navigating the root causes of depression, anxiety, and trauma is essential to healing and prevention. Psychological assessments can inform therapy and be used for workman’s compensation, preemployment, and fitness-for-duty, especially in police and public safety personnel.

Let's chat about how therapy in an LGBTQ + affirming environment may by what you're looking for and how it can help you move forward to reach your goals.
Affirmative therapy provides a safe environment for clients in the LGBTQ + community to express and understand their unique emotional and mental health needs in a heteronormative culture. As part of the community, I approach everyone with an open mind understanding my experience may be similar but also unique from your own identity and sexual experience. Most of my therapy is provided via online video sessions. I have completed certification in telemental health to better assist my clients. Online therapy provides greater access to clients, offers greater flexibility, removes barriers to therapy, & decreases anxiety to seeking care.

My experience includes psychotherapy/clinical social work in a diverse non-profit setting serving clients with depression, anxiety, HIV, chronic illness and pain, trauma, grief/loss, LGBTQ +, men's issues and relationship issues.
We all, at one time or another, have faced adversity, distress, anxiety, depression and during these times we can feel incredibly overwhelmed and alone. I am often reminded by my clients that it only takes one courageous step to bring about positive meaningful change. This is the time that we should reach out for help and start to look for answers to deal with these challenges. I encourage you to take that first step. I meet my clients where they are in the moment and help them in managing their thoughts, feelings and provide overall emotional support.

My areas of interest include Couples Therapy, Sex Therapy, Trauma, Parenting, and LGBTQ + concerns.
I believe that relationships are foundational for emotional health. Challenges faced in couples, families, and individual lives find healing in vulnerably reaching out to work through problems together. I provide a safe, judgement free area to help couples, individuals, and families face their problems. Talking about intimate details, such as sex, trauma, and shame, can be scary, and I am confident that reconnection and acceptance can be achieved. I am honored to be a part of your healing journey.
