About

It's a new year, and time to put the focus on your mental health! You are here because maybe you feel overwhelmed, melancholy, anxious, lonely, angry, misunderstood, etc? You are here because maybe your life feels unmanageable? We have all been there! I became a therapist because I want to be that empathic active listener for you. Let's explore what's not working, and what is working, in your life. Let's deconstruct your misguided beliefs and re-evaluate your values. Let's do this together, and at a comfortable pace. I am currently accepting new clients, so please review my website to learn all about me and my services.
Talk therapy is conversational and collaborative. My therapy toolbox is full of evidence-based modalities and interventions. Each client is a unique individual; therefore, the therapeutic relationship, and thus the interventions, are organically tailor-made to suit the needs of each client. Together, we will figure out what tools you need.
I specialize in LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, and I am trained in EMDR trauma therapy. I believe you are the expert of your lived reality, and I would like to support you through your journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. Please call or email for a free consultation and feel out if we are a good match. I really look forward to hearing from you!
