Note: As a queer and non-binary provider I have special interest in working with LGBTQIAplus identified people.
Are you finding career success but stumbling when it comes to other important areas of life like self-care and relationships? Do you struggle to enjoy your accomplishments, even when friends and family say you’re doing well? Adulting can be really hard. Concern around whether you're "doing it right" can contribute to feelings of being an imposter and prevent you from really savoring the wins you have in life.

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 am LGBT + affirmative, sex + kink positive, polyamory positive, nerd friendly, and an intersectional feminist.
The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. We just don't feel heard. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going. It's my goal as a therapist to help you tell your story.

I am flexible in my approach and use collaboration as the basis of my therapy. My specialties include helping parents who have a child with special needs, LGBTQ issues, relationship issues, and grief.

I believe that we all come into this world as our original precious self. As we develop through childhood experiences, family, culture and society, we often lose touch with our true soul. Oftentimes we are hurt. Challenges and traumas can keep these hurts buried. Any issues left unacknowledged or unresolved keep demanding our attention. How do we overcome? Is it even possible to heal? According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies away anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible...

I center my therapeutic practice on providing a welcoming space for all identities, free of judgement, to foster authentic communication. Working from an intersectional, trauma-informed lens, I encourage you to bring forward all the parts of yourself, and we will work to dismantle any shame that may reside to build compassion and acceptance. Regardless of what brings you to therapy, we are all survivors. Your gifts that carried you to this present moment deserve appreciation, and we can simultaneously work to redesign them into adaptive coping skills to manage life’s stressors.
