I have focused my work in the areas of behavioral modification, addiction, anxiety, depression, and LGBTQ issues.
I recognize that making the choice to begin therapy can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming. It is with this understanding, that I respect the courage and motivation that each person brings with them into the therapy relationship. My ultimate goal is to assist and support individuals, couples, and families as they navigate the stressors of daily life as well as hardships of life changes.

Everyone needs to have a space where their thoughts and feelings matter. I aim to create a space where people can explore whatever is on their mind without fear of judgment. I’m trained and experienced in EMDR and Internal Family Systems techniques, which are powerful approaches that help people to process trauma and become a wiser, more balanced version of themselves. I specialize in treating PTSD, issues with dissociation, LGBTQ + issues, and anxiety/depression. I also enjoy working with addictions or those who are in recovery from addictions, as well as with children and teens.

I have served the LGBTQ + community for 20 years.
I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I believe providing clinical services is a privilege, and partner with you to strategize achieving your goals and empower you towards living out your authentic life. Mental Health care is the exercise of mental wellness just as we exercise our body. A safe trusting relationship with your therapist is the foundation of care, and I promise to never ask you to do something I wouldn't ask of myself. Some therapists are ' gay friendly', at my practice we are "family".

There is no such thing as an ideal client. That is too boring. The way I do therapy is relaxed. I am not your average therapist, and I am not going to be like, "How does that make you feel?" but I am going to say, "What up! How are we doing today?" I never stop learning, and when you have me as a therapist, you will see that you will fall back in love with learning. Overall, I am just honored you allowed me to help you!

This crazy journey called life can leave us feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, searching for answers we can’t seem to find, or dealt a blow from which it feels impossible to recover. Counseling could aid you in breaking life down into more manageable pieces, inject a fresh perspective inspiring hope, guide you to finding the answers you are looking for, or teach you how to pick yourself up after a particularly brutal blow. Whatever the challenges you face, know there is hope and you are worth fighting for. I want you to know you are not broken, and you don’t need fixing; instead counseling can guide, teach, and revitalize your life.

My goal with each client is to help them recognize their strengths - to use what they learn about themselves in therapy and move on to the next phase in their life. The greatest joy I have is seeing the individuals blossom and tell me they are ready to face their challenges on their own! I am a secular individual, however I have great respect for the differences we each have and will not condemn or judge a person based on their affiliation.
