Do you find yourself wondering if you could benefit from therapy? Are you feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, low self-esteem, or depression? Or, do you find that things that have happened to you in the past prevent you from living life the way you want to now? I am here to help my clients deal with difficult emotions, such as guilt, shame, anxiety, anger, sadness, and loneliness, and find new meaning in their lives. I am passionate about providing therapy with a special focus on first establishing a safe, nonjudgmental relationship before approaching more serious issues, such as healing from trauma and other negative life experiences.

As a queer-identified therapist, it is my priority to be able to provide a safe space where people can feel accepted, no matter the race, sexual orientation, religion, gender identity, age, class, or ability status. I offer therapy that involves active listening, gentle challenging, and assignments to help you begin to do things differently in your life.

I also offer specialized treatment for EMDR, which is a tool that assists clients in addressing negative beliefs that are tied to traumatic experiences. Please contact me by calling my administration team to set up our first session. Once you schedule the first session, your life is already starting to change! **EMAIL ONLY OR CALL MAIN OFFICE at 763-482-9598
