Whether you’re an individual, a couple, or a family, I have room for you. Together, we can face those challenges that are in your life. I’m an open-minded, nonjudgmental kind of person, so I’ll make you feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings, and we can move forward together. I have experience in mental health, couple intimacy, family dynamics, trauma, and I welcome all people, all types of relationships (both monogamous and polyamorous), and all sexual preferences (such as LGBTQ+). I am currently working to acquire my AASECT Sex Therapy Certification through the Southwest Sexual Health Alliance.

I welcome the LGBTQ+ community, those that practice non-traditional relationships (polyamory in all its forms), and those in the kink community.
I understand and appreciate that everyone goes through life at a different pace, and taking time out to gain insight and understanding of ourselves can be quite the experience. I take the time to help my clients feel comfortable staying in this therapeutic space for a while and embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. As a member of the transgender community, I understand the importance of being true to yourself.

I offer a culturally sensitive and LGBTQ-informed approach in which you can be yourself and develop practical techniques for dealing with your problems.
Reaching out for help can be one of the hardest things you do for yourself. You may wonder if your problems are “bad enough,” or whether you deserve support for them. It might be difficult to believe that life can get better. But just by considering therapy, you’ve already taken the first step. Perhaps you want practical strategies for managing your emotions, tasks, and relationships, or just a space to be heard and understood. Whatever issue you're facing, you don't have to face it alone.

I am especially passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ community, adolescents and young adults, and survivors of trauma.
You deserve to love every single part of who you are. It's not always easy. Maybe it's been especially hard lately. Maybe there are past experiences that have damaged your sense of self-worth, or maybe you live a life that's pretty different from what society tells us is "normal." Maybe you struggle with a sense of shame that makes it difficult to be radically, fully, unapologetically you. Somewhere along the way, you've gotten stuck. It's time to get unstuck. Let's figure this out together.

On the outside, it may appear you have it all together. Internally, you're exhausted. You might have vowed to do things differently a hundred times, and it feels like nothing works. Maybe you feel like you can't be anything less than perfect--or whom others expect you to be. It may feel like you barely recognize yourself, or you wonder how you've ended up "here". That inner voice might say "this is as good as it gets", or "why keep trying?", but change is possible and you are worth it. I specialize in working with folks who live with eating disorders, are experiencing body image concerns, and those in the LGBTQ+ community.

No matter what made you take this step know that you are in a safe space where your rights and beliefs are fully validated.
