Many LGBTQ+ people have a hard time finding a place to turn when life gets difficult. This leaves us wondering “is there something wrong with me?” I'm a queer therapist who understands the unique support LGBTQ+ folks deserve so you can find confidence and live the life you want.

(Please email me for any inquiries) Traumatic experience varies from a wide range, it does not have to be something violent to leave trauma in our life. Trauma can be anything painful that we experienced in life. Without adequate resources and appropriate support, they can bring a lot of emotional suffering and damage to our quality of life.

I specialize in working with Polyamorous and NonMonogamous Folk, LGBTQ Youth, and Kinky Folk: individuals, couple, families, and group households.
As a Systemic Therapist I love helping people explore who they are, what they want, and how to get past the hurdles that get in their way. I support people around all issues of identity: how they see themselves, what parts are hidden, and how these things affect their interactions with others. I find that issues of identity are often the core of both personal dissatisfaction and conflicts with others, and so I help people explore what those are and how to work with them.

Perhaps that's why clients who are "othered" --- LGBTQ folks, immigrants, people of color, the formerly incarcerated --- are comfortable working with me.
I meet clients all the time who think their life experiences are too "big" or numerous for them to ever feel relief from anxiety, depression, or PTSD. They've often seen numerous therapists before they come to me. Their trust in therapy is pretty low. But as we begin, they start to sense I'm a nonjudgmental person they can trust. Of course, it will take a lot of work on your part to achieve a happier life and improve your mental health. But you can do it. My favorite sessions are those where we look at all of the positive changes a client has made, whatever their education level or station in life. And they happen fairly quickly!
