I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ population and with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. I consistently work with clients regarding depression, anxiety, motivation, trauma, grief, understanding their identity, familial relations, gender identity, sexual identity, sexual/relationship needs, polyamorous relationships, kink, communication in relationships, and self-integration. Extensive background in working with people of color. Assist parents/families through their child's gender transition. Experience in college counseling and high school counseling.
Certified yoga teacher, incorporating healing movement and breath work into sessions. Certified in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), intensive trauma trained.
We all deserve to be heard, understand our feelings, and speak our truth. Counseling is helpful during a hard time and can be something we come back to when we need support or a tune-up. I believe counseling is part of our every day; we need to take a moment for ourselves to be healthy.
