Are you struggling with difficult feelings or a search for meaning? Are you struggling to feel affirmed in your sense of identity as someone different or marginalized? Are you trying to work through trauma, grief, loss, and other concerns with your past? Are you seeking to improve your career path or interpersonal relationships? Or perhaps you simply need a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space to process your day-to-day stress. Utilizing a wide range of therapeutic approaches, I help my clients explore themselves to find resilience, healing, and meaning in their lives.
Having a background as founding board president of two LGBTQ+ organizations, I have advocated for many gender and sexual identity minorities. As a therapist identifying with said community, I work to create an affirming space for clients of all backgrounds to feel safe, affirmed, and supported in their unique experiences.
My therapeutic approach emphasizes a person-centered approach that focuses on holding a non-judgemental space for you to process your thoughts and feelings. I adapt my approach as I build therapeutic rapport with you to suit your unique needs with a variety of modalities. My primary role is to support you in finding your inner strengths and resilience.
