I also provide LGBTQ + affirmative therapy.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

I also have a strong commitment to working with LGBTQ issues / diverse lifestyles! Whatever your situation may be, I would be honored to guide and accompany you on your journey to greater well-being.
Don't Let Your Feelings Get The Best Of You. Is a persistent, overwhelming sense of grief and sadness preventing you from living the life you want? Are you dealing with intense emotions of shame, guilt, or hopelessness for seemingly no reason at all? Perhaps you have experienced a traumatic event or childhood neglect that is manifesting as fear, anxiety, or helplessness. Or it could be that you recognize the signs of depression but feel like you have nowhere to turn. If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone. And I want to assure you that there is much we can do to help you find inner peace and greater contentment.

I love working with those who don't always feel comfortable or "seen" in clinical settings: LGBTQ + folks, kink/BDSM practitioners, sex workers, POC, poly/open/nontraditional relationship architects, people with disabilities, Burners, self-proclaimed weirdos, and anyone struggling with or exploring identity.
I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

With psychotherapy, we can uncover negative patterns or perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling life.

Life is full of challenges. Some break us down to tears. I believe therapy is a safe place for us to sit down and examine your life. In therapy, we work on sorting out feelings, reflecting on self and what happened, and eventually overcome the obstacles. I am happy to be the person to sit down with you and listen to whatever issues you are facing. Therapy may not be easy, but when you are ready to tackle these challenges, I will be there to support you.

Do you often feel “unworthy,” “not enough” or “unloveable?” Are you stuck in shame spirals? You know, those intense self-loathing narratives and overwhelming emotions that erode your ability to live potentially. If this sounds familiar, I’m here to help. I support people who want to live bigger and brighter, but have struggled with self-esteem, consent violations and sexual assault, sexual and gender identity formation, sexual enjoyment and body-image issues. By showing you how to bring compassion to these issues, and the shame spirals they cause, I can help you learn to love yourself, others, and the world around you.
