I meet you exactly where you are, serving as a supportive person that helps you identify and accomplish your goals. I treat each client as a unique person and do not employ a one size fits all approach. I am direct and non-judgmental and see an equal amount of individuals and couples/groups.

Are you part of the LGBTQ+ community, feeling isolated and like no one understands you? Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, or finding difficulty relating with family and friends? Is your child part of the LGBTQ+ community and needs support while discovering their identity? It can be very difficult to feel connected to loved ones if they don’t understand every part of you, and the emotions that follow can be hard to navigate alone. I can work with you and provide you the support you need to cope with your emotions; to understand and value your identity; and transition into living authentically.

I am committed to practicing antiracism, feminism, and LGBTQ+ affirmation.
Healing from trauma or chronic stress and stepping into a more expansive life… being more whole and complete in relationship with yourself and others. This is my specialization, with a unique approach: I emphasize working through embodied experiences and healing through being a part of a compassionate and committed small group of fellow journeyers. Connecting with yourself and others in this way provides a transformational opportunity for healing. So many of our wounds came from relationships and groups, and working in these settings, under careful and experienced facilitation, reveals new strengths, capacities and possibilities.

Therapy is the ultimate form of self care. It can lead to radical self-acceptance, allowing you to manifest the positive goals you have for your life. Seeking therapy traditionally has had barriers, and I know breaking those barriers will create a better, more accessible, revolutionary, and empathic society. My clinical interests include working with LGBTQIA+ issues, depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, domestic violence, and times of adjustment and change. I come from person-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-focused modalities.
