About

Perhaps you are brand new to therapy, or returning for better results. Maybe you are looking for a therapist that relates to the LGBTQ+ identities/experiences you have, and how those may affect other areas of your life. You're looking for a space to be authentic and explore complex parts of who you are in a safe, affirming space. You might be experiencing anxiety, depression, confusion, or other barriers to your well-being. My priority is inviting you to share who you are so we can create positive outcomes. I combine evidence-based practices with real-world application, placing your experiences at the forefront of therapy.
I am a queer transgender therapist with client experience across all LGBTQ identities. I offer a nonjudgemental, openminded space for authenticity. I foster a collaborative space for you to connect and explore your life experiences, deepen self knowledge, understand your identities, and transform your life.
My speciality is in the transgender and gender expansive/nonconforming communities, sexuality and gender exploration, ethical nonmonogamy, and beyond. Holding an LGBTQ or queer identity is not a requirement nor does it need to be the focus of our work together. I acknowledge the unique identities you have, providing a space space for our work together.
