About

Providing a safe environment to aid in the processing of complex emotions. Identifying and learning specific skills to aid in emotional regulation, and increasing personal effectiveness. Learning to identify triggers, the underpinnings of said triggers, and replacing negative coping skills with positive, healthy and effective ones. Utilizing/maximizing self-compassion, personal strengths, and minimizing negative thoughts/cognitive distortions in efforts to effectively navigate and succeed in this highly chaotic and frenetic world that we live in.
Offering gender affirming mental health care services. I am committed to decreasing barriers to health care for transgender, gender nonconforming, and non-binary patients.
Carl Rogers described empathy as the capacity: 1. to assume the internal frame of the client, 2. to perceive the world as the client sees it, and the client as he or she perceives themselves, 3. to lay aside perceptions from external frames of reference during this time, 4. And to communicate this understanding back to the client.
