I specialize in working with college students, those within the LGBTQIA + community, and individuals with symptoms of Bipolar Disorder.
Therapy is meant to be a space where you are safe to thrive in your authentic self. If there is no other place in your life in which you can “just be”, let our time together be the safe haven in which you know you are accepted and cared for! The trust you put in me as your therapist is a great privilege, and I know that it may take time to earn that trust. You deserve a compassionate listener - one that is willing to meet you where you are and guide you toward your goals.

Are you part of the LGBTQ + community, feeling isolated and like no one understands you? Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, or finding difficulty relating with family and friends? Are you discovering your identity and navigating personal and emotional challenges that come with that process? It can be very difficult to feel connected to loved ones if they don’t understand every part of you, and the emotions that follow can be hard to navigate alone. I can work with you and provide you the support you need to cope with your emotions; to understand and value your identity; and transition into living authentically.

People I typically work with are experiencing life circumstances related to sexual health, their exploration of gender and sexuality, or some flavor of relationship concerns. I'm kink and BDSM positive, sex work/er +, and am experienced in working with poly+/ENM/open relationship constellations. Folx that work best with me engage in a non-judgemental, direct, affirming approach to therapy. I am a white queer person living with privileged and marginalized identities, and I strive to continue my learning and support clients in doing the same.

I welcome LGBTQIA +, Queer , gender-expansive, and non-monogamous clients in my practice.
The decision to start therapy signals an interest and curiosity about becoming more grounded and present in our lives. Each of us has a unique set of strengths and challenges that shape who we are and how we experience relationships. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed and draws on psychodynamic, sensorimotor, and mindfulness based modalities. I work with clients from a practical, here-and-now perspective while attending to the impact of relational, cultural, and early childhood experiences. I am Level 1 Basic Trained in Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR. I also work with grief & loss, depression, and body acceptance.

I am a non-binary, queer therapist dedicated to upholding gender-affirming, sex-positive, and social justice values in my personal and professional lives.
Sometimes we all need somebody to genuinely meet us where we are at in life with radical acceptance and compassion for who we are and where we want to go from here. But searching for the right person to connect with can be a daunting prospect, especially if you or your loved ones have lived experiences enduring societal rejections and systematic oppression. As such, my primary goal in therapy is to cultivate an inclusive, warming environment where you can safely and freely express your authentic self, which is why you deserve to know a little about me as well.

I have experience working with individuals and couples dealing with anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, HSP, relationship problems, LGBTQ +, and identity issues.
Therapy is a journey to self-empowerment and deeper self-awareness. Whether your struggle with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues, therapy is a place where you can safely explore the most profound aspects of your mind, recognize your true wants and needs, and learn to effectively regulate your emotions while fostering connection and positive engagement with yourself and the world around you. Therapy can help you better understand how to harmonize the mind-body connection for optimal well-being, life satisfaction, and happiness.

I’ve focused on providing confidential psychotherapy for men and young men for most of my career because guys in every stage of life need support that’s tailored to their unique concerns. In a typical course of therapy, we might start by identifying your goals and then get an action plan together that might include exploration of past issues and relationships, examining current issues and symptoms, and finally move toward preparing for the future. Using positive psychology, we’ll identify the many unique strengths you have as a man and then we’ll build upon those strengths.

While there are many reasons that people seek therapy, the need for support and perspective are often high on the list. Therapy can be a safe haven where the more difficult things in life are explored and allowed the space to heal. I aim to make each of my clients feel understood, respected, and seen throughout the process. I bring a calm, sincere demeanor to my practice and aim to embody my values of competence, compassion, and collaboration.

Accepting new clients! Big life changes, like leaving a job to pursue a passion or moving to a new city to start a new life chapter & anything in between, can be hard to navigate. While these can be exciting adventures, these changes can surface lots of difficult feelings in addition to painful memories of moments from our past. Sometimes we feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed & lost in these situations. Many of us are told to feel happy about these changes, but that might not align with our lived experiences. You’re not alone in this - we can work together to help you find comfort in navigating all of these things.

Hello, I am so glad you stopped by! I can help ALL ages by identifying and treating depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD and more. I have experience working with adults, children, teens, and families to resolve conflict, address school issues, and improve behavioral concerns. I also love working with parents/caregivers to learn new ways to help their child who is struggling behaviorally or otherwise. Also, after personally experiencing the challenges associated with infertility and pregnancy loss, I’m passionate about supporting others with these life events, as I know first hand how isolating, devastating, and frustrating it can be.

What type of Canton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Canton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
