As a transgender woman myself, I understand the unique challenges that face not only trans * clients, but of individuals from all walks of life who are struggling.
It is my personal and professional belief that everyone is capable of discovering their most authentic and successful self, but may occasionally need assistance in their journey to personal enrichment. I have been lucky enough to find those people in my own life, and I consider it an honor to serve that purpose for my clients in a warm, welcoming, yet professional fashion. I respect the individual needs of varying cultural backgrounds, and enjoy finding common ground with varying clientele.

I have experience working with individuals with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, low self-esteem, trauma of all types, young adults to older adults, and individuals from the LGBTQ population.
While everyone struggles sometimes not everyone struggles the same way. To help meet you were you are in your journey I use a variety of approaches. I believe in helping you find your inner strength through strength based approaches, increasing your awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions through Mindfulness based interventions and other cognitive behavioral approaches. I also believe that all individuals should be treated with autonomy, dignity and fairness. In working with individuals I bring compassion, understanding and empathy to each session. I have experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

As an LGBT ally, I seek to create safe space for clients to come as they are.
As a holistic-minded therapist who works with both individuals and couples, I see the counseling process as an opportunity to examine old ways of relating to oneself and explore new ways of interacting. I use a whole-body approach to guide clients in becoming more self-aware and finding the strength to initiate long-term positive change for themselves. With couples, my goal is to improve intimacy and commitment using a research-based approach that identifies your strengths, and models healthy relationship patterns. I will walk with you as we navigate creating new interactions and a happier, stronger partnership.

Nobody knows you like you know yourself. Your past decisions weigh on you and stop you from moving forward, to a place of peace and growth. Your past does not determine your future, each day is a new opportunity to start fresh. You may doubt who you are or what you want out of life, but you are the keeper of your story and do have power over your future. Your journey to finding the best life possible begins when you decide to make the change. I consider it an honor to walk down the path of exploration with you. No journey is too big or small, I believe in honoring all of life’s moments with my clients in a nonjudgmental environment.

Making the steps towards healing and growth can be difficult. I am a strong believer that we were never designed to navigate through life alone. Life can be incredibly challenging at times, and more often than not in ways that we would never expect. Whether you are feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless, or maybe experiencing grief, you deserve a safe space to process. I strive to always meet my clients where they're at in an inclusive and non-judgmental space. My hope is that we can work collaboratively together to embrace challenges, identify your strengths and develop healthy coping skills to help you thrive.

(Limited openings; weekends available). It can be difficult to find the right therapist. While I provide research-based psychotherapy, my approach is a bit more unique than other therapists; I implement humor and creativity, along with compassion and candidness, into each session while still meeting a client’s specific needs. My easygoing and laid back approach aligns with my target demographic of teens and young adults. Additionally, I also offer evaluations, assessments, and testing, including IQ, personality, and behavioral analysis, such as ADHD screening.

I have previous work experience in healthcare and I enjoy working with pre-teens, teenagers, adults, and couples. My training and experience includes: histories of complex trauma, personality disorders, trauma affiliated with religion, addiction(s), grief, sexual health, and medical trauma.

For many of us who have felt different, including those in the LGBTQIA +, we live with the collective trauma of existing in a system that isn’t built for us to thrive as our authentic selves. My hope is that through our collaboration we will be able to explore and identify the experiences and traumas that have led you to seek therapy services, understand how these problem areas don’t impact what is the most obvious, but also understand that sometimes these problems go much deeper, and lastly work through the things we discover to help you push through the discomfort to empower you to live authentically.
