Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and frustrated? Maybe the pandemic resurfaced old issues or messed with your coping strategies. And, if you already struggled with focus, motivation, and organization, all of these issues can pile on top of each other. You want to feel grounded and joyful, with a life that fits and feels like your own... not one you have to shove yourself into. You want your relationships to thrive. You deserve to wake up in the morning and feel ready and excited for the day ahead.

As a queer trans neurodivergent therapist with my own history of trauma, I know what it's like to feel trapped in cycles you can't seem to escape, and I know what it's like to fear judgment based on what you do to survive. I have a decade of experience providing culturally affirming, trauma-responsive counseling and care to LGBTQ clients and others directly impacted by intersectional oppression. If you are struggling - if you feel stuck - I can help you escape patterns of survival and learn to thrive. I can help you unpack trauma and move forward unburdened.

My clients share that I have been tremendously supportive in helping them work through anxiety, insomnia, or stress from high-intensity careers.

Whether it be the loss of a loved one, a career, or way of life, I can be a strong partner for you. I use a trauma-informed cognitive behavioral approach, balancing deeper insight-oriented work with practical solutions.

I have 31 years of experience helping people who are hurting change their lives. Often, we develop skills to survive difficult situations -childhood abuse, bullying in school, a bad car accident, sexual assault, an abusive marriage or boss - and it's hard to stop using those old skills, even when we no longer need them. We react in a new relationship as if we have to protect ourselves from things in the past. This often leads to more pain and unwanted outcomes. I can help you recognize those maladaptive coping skills. Change is difficult and often scary, but so worth it. I will be there cheerleading you as you practice new skills.

Superwoman, is it time for a change but you need some help? Do you feel like you just keep making the same bad relationship choices over and over again? Having trouble connecting with your partner intimately or sexually because something feels off? Are you feeling stuck or like things are getting worse? Maybe you're feeling empty or you just don't want to do anything? It can feel like a heavy load to bear, when you have all these questions running through your mind, but you have to be strong when you really are just TIRED, panicky, sad, & hopeless.
