About

As an openly transgender therapist, I know it can be difficult to find the right person to confide in. Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. To me, you are not just some random psychology textbook or theory. In our work together, my focus is to build goals and a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think, feel, want, and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, imagery, art, metaphors, curiosity, creativity, self-compassion, and humor when appropriate to support the therapeutic process.
I work with everyone in the gender-diverse, LGBTQIA2S+, and sex-positive community. I specialize in anxiety, depression, PTSD, teens, young adults, adults, and families (including foster care). I have worked with severe mental health, and homelessness crisis.
