About

As a LGBTQ+ Affirmative psychotherapist, I believe in assisting Queer and BIPOC clients in identifying their stressors, while exploring healthy strategies they can utilize in achieving their goals. In addition, I help couples navigate difficult conversations and help guide them to focus on new ways to celebrate each other through Martial and Pre-Martial Counseling. I specialize in Functional Family Therapy and assist families healing from past and present trauma. I specialize in helping folks resolve conflicts, reorganize their values and approaches to life, and teaching them to interpret their thoughts and feelings.
I'm a Queer identifying therapist who specializes in LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy. Specialities: Pre-martial Counseling, Infidelity Recovery, Communication Skills (within Couples), Racial Trauma, Family Trauma, Blended Families, and Multi-Racial Families. I specialize in working with recently graduated therapists and providing Clinical Supervision.
My approach to therapy is to help individuals, couples, and families establish a collaborative and trusting relationship to allow for vulnerability and personal growth to occur. Let's start your journey toward healing! I offer free 15-minute phone consultations to answer any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
