Announcement icon Due to the high levels of stress and increased mental health needs, I am currently offering video sessions to both new and existing clients.
As a therapist, my role is to provide a confidential and safe environment in which you experience empathy, authenticity, and respect. I provide therapy services primarily for adults, meeting with clients in a one-on-one setting. My typical clients are those who are experiencing a variety of personal concerns, such as healing from traumatic experiences, working through relationship problems or family stress, grappling with negative experiences from a religious community, coming to terms with identity issues or mental health concerns, engaged in adoption or foster care, and much more.
I am culturally sensitive with specializations in EMDR, CBT, and narrative techniques. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, trauma, various sexual and gender identities, depression, grief, pornography, religious trauma, self-harm, and relationship issues. I also provide supervision for Limited License Professional Counselors (LLPCs).
Please contact me to set up a free phone consultation or visit my website for additional information.
