I work with a wide variety of populations in all stages of life including children (ages 5-17), young adults, adults, and LGBTQ +.
Change and challenges can come into our lives both expected and unpredicted. I understand that mental health, life purpose, and happiness look different for us all, in addition to pain and hurt. I am motivated to be a part of people’s journey as they work towards their goals and learn more about themselves.

Additionally, as a queer identifying person, I create a safe space for those that identify with the LGBTQIA2S+ and/or Gender, Sexuality, and Relationship Diverse community.
So often, we can find ourselves confined into little boxes with walls built with layers of “I should do this”, “I should do that”, and expectations for a life that does not fit our inner truth. That space can feel defeating, demotivating, and, oftentimes, suffocating. I work with people who are ready to emerge into their truth, break out of the boxes, move into the various shades of grey, and live the life that they deserve. I work with adults who are currently struggling with any barriers to their truth such as life transitional periods, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, communication barriers, trauma, and/or self-love.

As a member of the LGBTQ + Community, who self-identifies as Queer , I come from a strengths based direction.
"All manner of things shall be well." The world is in constant flux. We are an everchanging species. Sometimes though, even the best of us, get stuck. Is the past holding on tight and refusing to let you move forward? Is the current state of the world around you, local and far away, keeping you awake into the night with fear and anxiety? You are not alone. Reaching out for support can feel like an impossible step. I understand that very well, as a helper and one who also needs help. Seeking support is a sign of strength, of courage, NOT weakness. They can be, and you have taken the first step by reaching out.

I enjoy working with clients who are struggling with confidence and self-esteem, especially during young adulthood, depression, anxiety, women’s issues, LGBTQ + issues, sexual assault, and substance abuse.
If you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or like you're treading water, let's work together to find a path forward! Imagine your life feeling meaningful, fulfilling, and energizing. With that vision in mind, we can find new ways of coping, solving conflict, and making decisions so that you have a chance to feel good again, or for the first time! Sometimes we think that we need to completely change who we are to find peace and happiness. However, your strengths and values are usually the best places to start when it comes to working through challenges.

I believe that finding the right therapist to assist you in your journey is often like finding a pair of shoes that has the right fit. This process can be arduous and can deter people from pursuing counseling. A key part of my clinical practice is to build rapport with my clients to assist them with feeling comfortable sharing what can be painful topics and issues. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most influential factors in assisting individuals to be successful in therapy and reach their goals. I especially enjoy working with members of the LGBTQIA + community as I identify as an LGBTQIA + individual.

How do we find inner peace when our outer presentation is wrong? Where is self-acceptance when the world around you is unaccepting? Your internal struggles are real, and you are not alone. Wholeness begins with healing. They say time heals all wounds, but some wounds are so deep it feels as though they may never heal. Asking for help takes strength. If you’re experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma from sexual assault or abuse, and/or sex and relationship issues, let’s chat. Please reach out via email if possible

I'm passionate about working with women and the LGBTQIA community who are wanting to resolve trauma and PTSD.
Life has a way of presenting what can feel like insurmountable challenges that distract us from our true nature. As women, life has trained us to abandon our wildly powerful nature to fit within the confines of supportive roles to others. When we hit rock bottom it creates a crack for our greatness to flood through, though often the pain of breaking distracts us in an unbearable way. Together we'll mend those cracks with gold. Sometimes we just need a lighthouse to show us the way back to our greatness, or to uncover it for the first time. Thanks for taking the time to see if I'm a good fit as you embark on your healing journey.
