You deserve to know that your feelings have value. Your feelings are important. And you have far more strength inside you than you even realize.

I currently have immediate openings! I am an autistic, gender-affirming, trauma-informed therapist in Topeka. For the last several years, I have worked with a variety of people with differing strengths, lifestyles and goals. My approach is client-centered, meaning that the most important thing for me is to first establish a relationship with a client by meeting them where they are, and offering a space that is non-judgmental, caring and empathetic space. Oh, and bonus... I have a really cute dog that comes to work with me. I look forward to speaking with you.

Like many of us, most of my clients are seeking greater meaning in their lives, improved connection and satisfaction in relationships, and relief from loneliness, worry, rumination, and shame. My practice is based on values that emphasize acceptance/non-judgment, compassion, and authenticity. Starting therapy doesn't need to have a rigid plan or agenda. Simply being curious or wanting to feel better is a great place to start. We all need a space where we don't feel judged and are free to explore who we are, what we want, and who we want to become.

If you have found my page, you or someone you know are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger or some other stressor. Therapy is useful as it will help you develop new ways to manage these issues especially in the way you think about them. Helping people learn about themselves and grow is my passion. Discarding old patterns of behavior/thinking and developing new one's will be the primary goal while working together. I find this to be very exciting and somewhat challenging but definitely worth all the effort in the end.

Motherhood is beautiful; but from pregnancy to parenting, it’s not easy. Maybe you're holding your baby, wondering why you don’t feel “happy” yet. You’re afraid of not being "good enough" and you feel overwhelmed as you try to survive without sleep. Your expectations around labor and birth did not go to plan and you feel a loss that others don’t understand. Maybe you're pregnant now; filled with hormones, fear, and anxiety about the transition ahead. You want to prepare but don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re struggling to get pregnant, questioning and measuring everything, angry and afraid of hearing the word "infertility".

Do you feel unsure of who you are now? Perhaps you are going through a transition in your life and trying to understand how to get along. Maybe you feel like you aren’t yourself because of intense, persistent feelings of some kind. Maybe your past is dragging you down. Maybe your relationships at home, work, or in your community are not as satisfying as you wish they could be. You’re starting to think, you need an outside perspective; It’s hard to sort through this alone. These thoughts have got you asking, “Will psychotherapy help? Can it really change things? Is it worth it?”
