Step Up. Step Out. Step Forward. I opened QueerSpace Counseling, LLC because as a gay man it is my passion to work with the LGBTQ + community to foster a safe space where clients can share their stories and find practical, easy to use interventions that provide relief. I believe that everyone has the ability to move forward, center themselves, and find calm. I believe that each of us can take steps for measurable success in our goals,and operate from a mindfulness-based and trauma-informed approach.

I work with couples and individuals, and welcome the LGBTQ community. My therapeutic goals are to teach couples effective communication, rather than act as a referee. I provide education and teach skills that clients continue to use, to keep communication on track, including emotional regulation. When partners are in an emotionally heightened state, it is difficult to communicate effectively. I work to help clients master this skill, as we move into difficult subject matter. I meet with couples from 90 minutes to two hours, because as relational counseling goes, one hour sessions have not been as effective in my experience.

Accepting new clients! I help people overcome difficulty and use it to grow and pursue a life of meaning and purpose. Sometimes we start by treating stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, career, or LGBTQ + and other identity issues, and over time turn to deeper issues about the life you want to create, your identity, and your values. I’m a humanistic counselor, which means I’ll never tell you what to do and I’ll always empower you to make the choice that’s best for you. I use a collaborative, gentle approach that helps you connect with your intuitive sense of self and your intrinsic motivation to grow and do difficult things.

I provide creative, gender-affirming therapy for queer and trans folks, as well as short-term solution focused therapy for partners and family members to process a loved one’s coming out. Clients come to me for a lot of reasons— they’re questioning their gender identity, struggling with the coming out process, or looking to learn more about how to support someone they love. Sometimes they have past traumas that are getting in the way of feeling secure, safe, and authentic. Or they want some strategies for managing anxiety or depression. No matter what brings you here, welcome.

I work with individuals who experience mental health and/or substance use issues, anyone with a history of trauma (including complex or developmental trauma), those who identify within the LGBT + community seeking counseling, and individuals with gender related concerns or seeking services for hormone replacement therapy and/or gender affirming surgery.
What we experience throughout our lifetime impacts how we form relationships, process information, or show up in the world. Expectations, environment, or your inner voice not aligning with what you know or have been told, can influence how you view yourself or others. Do your experiences not align with how you feel? If you struggle with understanding who you are, how you identify, improving your relationships, or even your relationship with your own feelings/behaviors, I can help. I work to assist clients in finding their true, authentic self. My job is to help clients find their own needs and how to obtain them for themselves.

I proudly see non-traditional ( LGBTQ +, Poly, and Kink) individuals, couples, and / or families.
Intimacy is a cornerstone of any relationship. There are many reasons why a couple may lose some level of intimacy over time. You may find yourself wondering where the 'spark' went in your own relationship. I may be able to help you and your partner recover your intimate past. I may be able to help you discover a whole new level of intimacy you never thought possible. Unfortunately, the price of love is grief. No two people grieve the same and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. You can grieve and miss the whole person, or just parts of the relationship. Sexual Bereavement is one such specialized grief some people have.

, LGBTQ ) and individuals with congenital and acquired disabilities.
I am working with both adolescents and adults. My theoretical orientation to counseling and psychotherapy is rooted in the philosophy of a humanistic-existential approach to human functioning. I use the tenets of individual responsibility to choice and decision-making and apply them within a cognitive-behavioral perspective (CBT) to counseling and clinical work. I consider myself a generalist with specialty training in cognitive rehabilitation, vocational/career counseling, as well as psychoeducational testing and other evaluations, such as pre-surgical evaluations (e.g., for bariatric procedures).

I work with women & LGBTQIA + members experiencing concerns including addiction, depression, anxiety, grief, histories of abuse and trauma, existential crises, interpersonal conflicts, borderline personality disorder, and mood disorders.
Please call me Ally! I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I can promise you that I am as real as it gets! I work with you to help you identify your desires and empower you to make those positive changes in your life. I recognize that making the choice to seek help can be difficult, so I use an approach that is compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental to help create an environment where you feel supported in your counseling journey.
