About

I prioritize developing a therapeutic relationship that is founded upon trust, integrity, compassion, and non-judgment. The emphasis is less focused on "pathology" and more on strength, resilience, and developing an optimal worldview. It is my hope to support you to be more content in life, learn new ways to re-engage life and become more empowered to enact your vision of change. It takes tremendous courage to take the first steps toward healing, change, and growth. Thank you for considering working with me to support you on this journey.
I have training and experience addressing various mental health concerns that range from depression, anxiety, relational conflict to gender dysphoria. I also have specialized experience working with same-gender-loving, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer individuals, as well as, gender fluid, transgender, non-binary, and other gender-diverse folks.
In addition to my background in providing individual and group therapy, I have completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Niroga Institute. If appropriate and mutually agreed upon, yoga and/or mindfulness meditation can be integrated into psychotherapy treatment.
