I have experience working with LGBTQ+ individuals, veterans , and other minorities.
I work with clients who are navigating discovering who they are as a person; who struggle with being heard or expressing themselves in interpersonal relationships; who have had difficult experiences that may make them feel overwhelmed to think of, let alone discuss. It can be difficult to even know where to start, and that is okay. I commend and welcome clients who are taking that first unsure step in therapy, or are continuing treatment to continue their journey towards a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

If you are a military veteran, queer, or gender non-conforming, I can offer you unique insight based on my extensive training, background, and personal history in these areas.
You've spent much of your life doing the things that you "should," so you wonder, "why don't I feel happier?" People may see you as "put together" and accomplished from the outside, but inside, you feel numb, chaotic, anxious, or even broken. I help people who've been through traumatic experiences feel in charge of their lives again without being held back by painful memories from the past. If you feel angry, stressed, depressed, guilty, or self-loathing, I want you to know that there is a way through this to a meaningful and happy life.

I am particularly experienced with military and Veteran communities, early and middle adulthood, and healthcare professionals.
Our connections with ourselves, others, and our communities can bring tremendous joy, meaning, and fulfillment. In contrast, experiences of disconnection can elicit profound anguish. A crucial step toward relief and enduring growth in psychotherapy starts with an affirming connection with your therapist. Beyond the reasons that bring you in, I am committed to listening to your life story and learning about you as a whole, imperfect person who deserves unconditional care and respect. From there, we can identify opportunities to relate to yourself and others in new ways.

We all have stories we have been carrying with us based on our lived experience. I aim to help my clients dig deeper into these personal narratives, to understand how our past may be affecting our present and keeping us from the future we want. I have specialized training and experience in working with trauma and providing treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, military adjustment, occupational stress, and other major life changes.
