Childhood trauma, a distressing loss, religious trauma, or grief may be affecting your relationships, daily functioning, mood, and causing anxiety and depression to impact your life. Your story is worth being told. I am passionate about creating space for you to tell your story, move beyond your past, and author your future. I aim to help you extend compassion toward yourself for the behaviors or patterns that have served you in some way to survive and cope with overwhelming experiences, while also empowering you to have choices to move forward as you heal. Call or email me for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit.
I offer trauma-informed, compassionate, and relational therapy to individuals who have experienced trauma.
As a part of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I am passionate about working with other members in the community as my personal experiences inform my professional work. I acknowledge the courage it takes to step out and seek help. I would be honored to travel alongside you in this journey. Call or email me for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit.
