If you feel like something is missing, like you’re struggling with things that are out of balance in your life, I’m here to help you become the person you truly wish to be, to find healing, wholeness, and a sense of congruence with your values and identities. It’s so easy for life to get the best of us, leaving us feeling out of control or not fully ourselves. We’re often not even aware of how much the problems within us have to do with the systems outside of us, like our relationships, communities, and culture. That's why I especially love working with marginalized ( LGBTQ +, ethnic minority, etc.) and young/emerging adults.

I have extensive experience with LGBTQIA + clients of all ages.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who helps people struggling with difficult issues like anxiety disorders, OCD, chronic insomnia, and panic attacks. I love working with people who have been told their OCD and anxiety symptoms are "difficult to treat" or for whom therapy has not been effective in the past. Because different types of therapy work better for different people, I use cognitive, behavioral, and person-centered approaches to healing. I strongly believe therapy should always be about improving your life however you want to live it – never about what a therapist believes would be best for you.

I am queer allied and gender affirming.
I know that a lot of these profiles look the same, so I’ll skip the things that everyone says. Here’s the truth: I can’t help you on my own. Therapy takes teamwork. I will listen to you, I will validate you, and I will give you tools. The choice is yours of whether you pick them up and use them. I have been providing therapy in a variety of settings for over the past 15 years- community mental health, residential facilities, military clinics, and via telehealth. I have seen a broad range of issues- anxiety, mood disorders, PTSD, life changes, postpartum struggles, family violence, struggles with identity, and many more.

Over the past year and a half I have been passionate about increasing my competency in providing affirming care to the LGBTQ community by receiving training, education and supervision from experts and colleagues in the field.
I can see your strength, even when you cannot. I use my education and experience in psychology to lead you to discover your most authentic self.

By examining these patterns in behavior and thought and how they serve us, one can make changes to improve life.

I specialize in mental health and substance abuse (opioid/ alcohol), sexual trauma, aging, bullying, anger management, career counseling, depression, relationships, LGBTQ issues, self-image, stress, and suicide.
Every person is unique, therefore I believe treatment should be individually tailored to meet each person’s specific needs. What we think, how we feel and how we behave are all closely connected– and all of these factors influence our overall well-being. I help my clients develop positive coping strategies to improve emotion regulation. Oftentimes there are unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from our past dysfunctional relationships, that manifest themselves in our present lives in unhealthy ways. I help my clients to gain insight into these recurring patterns and unconscious underlying resistances.

It is important for an individual to be free from the fear that does not allow one to reach a place of understanding and self-acceptance. Whether it is struggling with a past trauma, loneliness, anxiety, anger, fear of not being accepted, feelings of being “too much” or “not enough”, I practice from a place of compassion and non-judgement. When a client expresses, they are ready for a change, I will “meet them where they are at” in the therapeutic process. I enjoy working with diverse populations, at any stage in life, including individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQIA + community.
