Let’s be honest - life can get pretty messy. It’s full of things like change (ugh!), other humans and events out of our control. Maybe you're having a hard time, and you don't even know "why". Maybe your relationships are stressful. Maybe society’s “-isms” (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, etc.) are affecting your well-being. In therapy you get to decide what is important! I get the honor of walking with you as we figure out how to help you cope, manage, grow or heal. As a queer person, I am especially passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ folx. I provide a safe & affirming space to explore all facets of yourself/your life.
My background in community mental health has made me comfortable helping people with many kinds of life stressors and mental health experiences. My therapy approach depends on your needs, but I primarily work prioritizing empathy and empowerment while teaching tangible DBT skills to improve communication/relationships, manage emotions and be more mindful.
Whoever you are, whatever you are experiencing, you don’t have to face the mess, and celebrate the wins, alone! My priority is that you feel seen, heard and understood. Please give me a call to set up a free consultation or visit my website for more information. I would love to learn about you, hear your goals and see if I would be a good fit for you.
