About

My ideal client is 12 or older and deals with depression, anxiety, or a mood disorder. They may also be exploring gender or sexuality. They want to process their feelings and gain skills and perspective to manage issues that come up.
I am a LGBTQ+ provider and enjoy working with teens and adults who are exploring their identities. Most of my experience is with depression and anxiety but I have worked with clients with trauma, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder as well.
Reaching out for help in the form of therapy is a huge step. Finding a therapist that meshes with you is hard enough, and then you have to go in and do the work. When you are ready, I am available to work with you through the first steps. Calling the number listed will connect you to my client access team, but an email would come directly to me.
