About

Let's just come out and say it, life is really challenging.... especially right now. In addition to stress caused by living amidst pandemic burnout, political ineffectiveness, and the reality and/or threat of our basic rights being stripped away, we all have our own stuff that causes us to sometimes feel lost, confused, lonely or misunderstood. I can help you find helpful ways to work through uncomfortable emotions, relationships, grief, and more of life's inevitable stressors. I believe that we all hold the ability to manage life's challenges. To do this, we sometimes need a supportive guide. Enter therapy.
My aim is to offer therapy that is inclusive to all. I specialize in working with the LGBTQ+/queer community and also tend to work with individuals and partners of all ages and gender identities dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, relationship concerns, grief, perfectionism, life transitions, and body image issues.
I understand that therapy can feel daunting. It's normal to feel this way! As you choose to embark on this important step, I want you to know that you're already making a positive decision for your own growth and development. I invite you to reach out to me so we can see if working together feels like a good fit.
