“Self-care is the constant practice of not letting more pain accumulate.” -Susan Raffo. I have a special interest in the wellness and wholeness of QTPOC, and helping each person uncover the underlying foundations of their discomforts. I believe in treating the intersections of the mind, body, and spirit. Listening, witnessing, empathizing, and being present are tenets of my therapeutic framework.

As a therapist with multiple intersecting identities, I understand our mental states are products of our social states. I aim to work collaboratively with the client to help access and utilize the strengths and resources they inherently possess. My areas of clinical interest include anxiety, depression, substance use, life transitions, body image, minority stress, trauma and identity concerns. I have a particular interest in supporting those who are LGBTQIA + identified and other marginalized and oppressed populations.

I meet you exactly where you are, serving as a supportive person that helps you identify and accomplish 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? Is your child part of the LGBTQ + community and needs support while discovering their identity? 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.

I have experience and enjoy working with those who identify with the LGBTQIA spectrum, Youth, Black and Brown people and those who struggle with Depression, Anxiety and Body Image issues.
I am passionate about helping people reach radical self-acceptance and self-love through vulnerability. I enjoy helping people go through the murky waters of their subconscious mind to identify their trauma, conditioning and core beliefs to heal which allows them to live a more aligned and authentic life. I truly believe that to unlock the abundance of the Universe, you have to be in alignment with your highest self. I am obsessed with human behavior, Astrology, Spirituality and Psychology and this knowledge adds to my toolkit and how I practice.

I am a trauma-focused and Gottman trained therapist who specializes in working with court-ordered clients and has extensive experience working with clients from all walks of life including: couples and individuals who struggle with substance abuse, anger management, human trafficking, sexual assault, domestic violence, LGBTQ + issues, and trauma/PTSD.
Hablo Español. As a multicultural, bilingual therapist, I understand the challenges of feeling unseen and misunderstood. People may make assumptions about the way you show up or they may seemingly require you to be someone different than who you know yourself to be. Is it hard for you to tell the difference? Are you being yourself or are you being who others want you to be? Maybe you want to break free of roles and expectations placed on you by friends, family and the world but you don’t know how. You don’t want to risk losing the people that matter most but you also don’t want to risk losing yourself in the process.

Do you find yourself wondering how you got to where you are in life? Are you struggling to discover who you are, who you want to be, and how to get others to understand? If you find yourself or a loved one in a similar situation, it may be time to consider reaching out for help. I work closely with my clients to explore how their past shapes their beliefs about themselves. We work together to identify beliefs serving as an obstacle, find new ways of thinking, and develop healthier self-perception in order to facilitate more enjoyment from life.

I have been trained to work with youth who identify as members of the LGBTQ community and their families.
Life is full of surprises. No matter how much you prepare and plan, unexpected events may occur. I believe that therapy is an essential tool to help prepare you to cope with the unexpected as well as the stressors of everyday life. I am passionate about normalizing therapy by educating people on the benefits and necessity of having an unbiased listening ear to help work through life events. I strive to provide a comfortable environment where clients feel safe to share their most vulnerable thoughts and ideas. I will work as an advocate to help my clients become empowered in their ability to cope with whatever life throws at them.

I have a background with recovery, LGBTQ + identity development, and grief & loss.
You’ve made a courageous step in seeking therapy. Therapy can help us heal and grow, through deep listening and presence. Early life shapes how we create our sense of self, learn boundaries, and tend to feelings. We can decide now how we want to show up for ourselves and others, uncovering skills and beliefs that no longer serve us.

If you are LGBTQ +, you may be feeling lost and struggling to find someone who “gets” you. As a queer transgender man, I have a unique perspective into the challenges of navigating our world, and I feel empowered to support folks who are exploring what it means to live as their authentic selves. I’m invested in supporting folks at any age who are like us. I encourage you to bring anything into our sessions so we can process things together. All vibes are welcome with me: if you’re having a particularly difficult day, if you’re nervous about starting therapy, if you feel like you should be able to handle this on you own.
