My focus is young adults 18+, college students and LGBTQ + folx. I have extensive experience working with college students. I aim to support and guide those who may be struggling with adjusting to college, coping with depression and/or anxiety, forming their identity, exploring their sexuality, working on relational patterns, etc. Decreasing stigma of mental illness as well as suicide prevention and LGBTQ + rights are important causes to me as an individual, LGBTQ + ally and professional. I am also a sex-positive, poly and kink-knowledgable therapist, who is not here to judge you. :)

I help people who seek improved interpersonal relationships, enhanced brain function, nervous system regulation, spiritual guidance, and diagnostic clarification. You may have experienced a loss, a trauma, a transition, or an unexpected life upheaval. My job is to walk with you in the darkness and shine a light, so we may find the way through together. Whether you are seeking an assessment for diagnostic questions, or a longer therapeutic relationship to allow deeper self-exploration, I am happy to join you in the work. I am highly motivated to work with individuals that identify as part of the LGBTQ + and neurodiverse communities.

As an inclusive therapist, I seek to help any and all adolescents ages 12 to 18 and adults from ages 18 to 65 ( LGBTQ + friendly).
Each person is unique and has experienced their own set of challenges, trauma and adversities yet we are all bound by human commonalities. We get hurt, we feel anxious or depressed, we feel anger and we can feel hopeless. If you want to find joy, meaning or take control over your life, I am here to help guide you and provide you support. I am here to acknowledge the pain while finding things that bring happiness. We all need a safe place to get support when we are struggling to find our voice, figuring out how communicate ours needs or dealing with the emotional pain caused by everyday stressors, trauma or relationship issues.

As a queer , neurodivergent therapist who found myself in the mental health field as a result of a gamut of lived experience – I know too well how difficult it can be to find a therapeutic space where you “fit.” This world is heavy enough without the added difficulty of summoning the strength to reach out for help, only to feel like you must change yourself to access therapeutic support. It’s a terrible, gut-wrenching feeling that I have personally experienced. This will not happen with me.

Sometimes life, our feelings, and our minds can become overwhelming. Many of us have been through things that make it difficult to understand our own thoughts and actions. My vast experience with a broad spectrum of human challenges has led me to develop a keen intuition. I am a Neurodiversity affirming therapist and I strive to connect with my clients' inner world. Many clients tell me that they feel like I am "the first person that really understands" them. Working together, I will endeavor to accurately conceptualize the various aspects of your life in order to increase self awareness and maximize personal growth.

Do you turn to food, alcohol, or drugs to deal with feeling lonely or rejected, or to cope with added stress and anxiety? Have you lost the joyful feelings that you used to have in life? Do you feel fear stricken, even in the “comfort” of your own home? Do you feel like there are so many things to manage and your forever growing “to do list” leaves you feeling completely overwhelmed? I work with women who have experienced tough stuff in their childhood and feel like they have lost their way. Sometimes we turn to food, alcohol, and drugs or, we withdraw from friends and family, just to cope. Does this sound like you?
