While working with a variety of client concerns I primarily specialize in treating depression and anxiety, LGBTQ + related issues, navigating work/Denver startup stress, finding meaning & purpose, and breaking intergenerational patterns/behaviors that were learned from family (usually stemming from trauma).
Open doors to a better future, reconcile with doors left open from your past. Think of therapy as the opportunity to make the desired changes in your life to increase your overall well-being. I'm here to help you unlock your unique capabilities & strengths for maximizing your success in all the important areas of your life. This means: learning how to take better care of yourself; being a better friend, family member, and lover; having a greater impact on your community, whether that be at work or at home; taking your dreams and making them a reality.

I enjoy working with clients from all different backgrounds, across race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and ability. I have particular empathy and compassion for any client who feels their path in life has not followed that of the majority or who have felt marginalized in some way. I also have extensive experience in working with members of the LGBTQ community in therapy. I believe therapy should be collaborative between myself and clients - I bring education and training to our therapy and you bring the most expertise on yourself.

My primary areas of expertise are in sex therapy, LGBTQ populations, couples, parent coaching, child behavioral challenges, life transitions, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, and depression.
Do you struggle with issues related to relationships, sex, intimacy, sexuality, and gender identity? I strive to create a safe and accepting space to explore and discover an authentic lifestyle within these aspects of life. Through a sex positive approach, the goal is to reduce shame and enhance authenticity. Beginning with the exploration with relationship to self, my clients are able to enhance their relationships with others. Challenging the messages, beliefs, and values family and society has created allows for clients to learn and create their own narrative for the life that aligns with them.

I identify as a queer cis woman and I specialize in working with LGBTQ + individuals.
I take a holistic and contextual approach to therapy. I want to know your sources of pain - but I also want to know what you value, what has shaped you, where you draw inspiration, your beliefs, and how you feel in your own body. We’ll peel back layers, we'll process distress, and we'll build practical tools to manage the challenges you're facing. Ultimately, we’ll build a more authentic, empowered sense of self. If something is no longer serving you, let’s figure out how to change it. My areas of focus include sexuality, sex, identity, anxiety, depression, relationships, and life-transitions.

LGBTQ +, people of color, individuals in the justice system, etc.
My approach to therapy is to meet my client where they are at along their lifelong journey towards contentment, success, and understanding their own intersectionality. Many of us bring different “selves” with us to each interaction in life, whether that be our gender, race/ethnicity, mental health diagnosis, or attachment style. The goal is to help individuals understand how all of these parts of ourselves interact and how we can best approach a life worth living while navigating daily obstacles and life’s transitions. We will work as a team throughout your treatment with you leading as the expert on your life the entire way.

Adult LGBTQ + therapy, Child/Adolescent LGBTQ + therapy, EMDR therapy, interpersonal & Mindfulness-based therapy, Polyamory & Kink therapy, relationship and sexuality concerns.
With over 9 years of clinical experience, I also bring my energetic and caring personality into your session while providing objective feedback in a non-pathologizing therapeutic space. I see counseling as a way to learn how to better cope and process life concerns in the present, reprocess life-altering/significant life events from the past and worries of the future. If you feel comfortable partnering with a counselor who strives to avoid shaming, blaming, judging, and guilting others, we'll be a good match. Whether you're queer , bi, gay , or straight, you are welcomed and accepted in my office.

Finding a Queer -affirming therapist who is a good fit is important.
You deserve healing because being a human is fucking tough. Life is not getting any easier these days. You deserve someone who understands how overwhelmed you are feeling. Know that you can find freedom from the big feelings you have at this moment. You can speak your truth and be authentically you. Maybe you are unsure of where to begin. I hear that! Please know that there are no blueprints here for any human or identity (e.g., queer , trans , cis). Therapy is about your story and what matters the most to you.

My clients, from teens to elders, identify with the wide and beautiful LGBTQAI* spectrum, and their therapy with me is colored by the gifts and hardships of living Queer . Improving relationships, finding stigma-free resources, managing HIV, uncovering sexuality, boosting self-esteem, understanding anxiety and depression, healing past traumas, practicing ‘coming out’, and learning self-care are examples of the work that happens in the therapy room with me. My clients are courageous, honest, and motivated to explore ways to discover their personal power —and then own that power out in the world.

LGTBQ+ couples deserve authentic, liberating, knowledgeable care. You and your partner have been through it all: navigating the ups and downs with family, careers, and life.

You want to build a future together in a real way, rooted in your shared values.

I am a queer and trans non-binary therapist, passionate about providing affirming care to the LGBTQIA community in the state of Colorado. I know firsthand the power of having a therapist who has similar lived experience, even when we aren't focusing on issues specific to gender or sexuality - our identities touch everything in our life. I draw from depth-oriented, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and social justice based frameworks, and I work with adults, youth, parents of LGBTQ youth, and couples.

Ever wonder what your inner voice would say if given the chance for full, authentic expression? Mental health challenges contribute to the quieting of our authentic selves. In truth, your story contains inherent wisdom which is the key to your growth and transformation. I work with the LGBTQIA + population, ENM/poly folks (individuals only), survivors of trauma, and anyone seeking mental wellness or relief from depression, anxiety, shame, grief, and codependency. My approach is collaborative, encouraging, and affirmative.

I believe that therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Our work is an affirmative process - your identities, your experiences, matter to me. For many clients, their sense of self has been invalidated. This can create distance between us and our relationships as we decide if the next person we invite into our world is safe. I believe that you are worthy and deserving of loving relationships - with yourself too!I worked to create an inclusive environment free of judgement with a focus for young adults, LGBTQIA +, Kink, Poly/NMN, and couples.

I specialize in treating LGBT concerns (individual and relationship), and augment my practice with specialized training in transgender care.
*I offer teletherapy to clients in California, Nevada and Colorado. I offer in-office visits in Sacramento and San Francisco when allowed by local ordinance and client comfort.* Sometimes we expect far too much from ourselves. Each client is invited into a space where there is no expectation and where they are free to be themselves, without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Adults can sometimes struggle to find space to hold compassion for themselves. Couples (and all variants of relationship structure) can also use a nonjudgmental time and space to feel heard, while building tools for communication.

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.
