Are you stressed about recent or future changes to your life? Are you exploring a career change? Do you hesitate to reach out for help for fear of being judged or burdening others? Have you tried therapy in the past but are looking for sessions that are more conversational and engaging? In therapy, we can explore these issues with empathy, grace, and sensitivity to your personal identity. It is a privilege to join people committed to vulnerable and courageous healing journeys. Together we will gain insight, recognize unhelpful patterns, and practice coping skills to better deal with life’s stressors.
I provide person-centered, trauma-informed, social justice-oriented, gender affirming individual clinical therapy that incorporates mindfulness practices. I identify as a generalist and incorporate various treatment modalities. Personally, I also explore and enjoy learning about curanderismo, and Indigenous healing and spiritual practices.
It can take risk and resilience to find a therapist that resonates with you. If you have more questions about me, my counseling style, the kind of clients I work with, or general questions about therapy then I invite you to explore my website and schedule a free 30-min consultation.
