About

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor whose work focuses mainly on adolescents and young adults. I believe in working collaboratively with clients to reach their goals, enhancing the strengths and skills my clients currently hold while developing new ways of coping. I provide a space for LGBTQ-affirming, trauma-informed care using empathy, open communication, humor, and intentional relationship building to foster meaningful conversations in the therapy room.
I try to zoom out from clients’ day-to-day experiences to explore patterns, root causes, and systemic impacts related to current symptoms. Because we each navigate our world looking through our own unique lens, treatment for identical symptoms can look different for each person.
I value feedback from clients and hope to build a space that feels supportive to my clients’ specific needs. Each client is the expert in their own life, and I encourage clients to be active participants in driving the direction of therapy. I hope to walk alongside my clients, encouraging and supporting them as they confront life’s challenges.
