I hope to be able to assist you in your journey, whether it is in navigating the world as a trans , non-binary, or gender expansive person, an LGBTQ individual, a person of color, or if your goal is to decrease the impact of mental health concerns on your life and your ability to engage in your values.
I work with individuals who come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons, including depression, anxiety, phobias, life transitions, and stress. My particular focus areas are providing gender affirming care for individuals 12 and older who are at various stages in their gender journey, as well as working with people who have OCD. I am affirming of kink, poly relationship structures, and have significant experience and training in navigating gender identity exploration/transition, as well as sexual and racial identity development.

I specialize in working with LGBTQ + and neurodiverse individuals, and have clinical experience with managing hardships related to substance use, depression, anxiety, trauma, sex and sexuality, and relationship conflict.
Existing in this world is hard, especially if you’re shouldering the burden alone. There’s no shame in seeking support and there’s no time like the present to begin rewriting your story. Through personal exploration and a deep, honest evaluation of your surrounding environments, you can foster a sense of clarity and become better equipped to face the obstacles that life hands out.

I center my work around anti-colonialism & anti-capitalism, anti-racism, and queer liberation. I believe in the power of presence, connection, and laughter. As a queer clinician, I work from an affirming, sex positive, trauma-informed, and client-centered lens, and take a relational and emotion focused approach.

Are you a trans person wanting to explore transness? Opening up a relationship and have a lot of anxiety coming up? Leaving a religious tradition and unsure what is next? Looking to work through shame around enjoying a kink or fetish? I know reaching out to a therapist can be hard and scary, but I'd love to talk about working with you!.
I enjoy working with teens (16+) and adults around identity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, anxiety, self-worth, and all the many ways we construct meaning in life. I have a strong interest in working with queer and trans individuals, as well as folks exploring kink, consensual non-monogamy and polyamory, and de/reconstructing spirituality. I enjoy accompanying trans folks in the joys and frustrations of transness and exploring how to be authentically themselves in the world.

I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ community and provide an affirming and safe environment.
My goal as a therapist is to help people live more emotionally healthy and relationally successful lives. I work with people to help them understand and experience their emotions differently so their emotions help vs hinder their successes. I am trained in EMDR and incorporate it into the work to help clients process emotion at a deeper level to get unstuck in life and to overcome traumatic memories. Additionally, I am a past president and current board member of the Minnesota Society for Clinical Social Work and I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala. I am fluent in Spanish as well.

I specialize in working with individuals from the gay , lesbian , bisexual , transgender and non-conforming gender communities.
Real change comes from understanding why our own impulses and behaviors hold us back from experiencing our true potential and discovering the skills to create the change we seek. I believe in a holistic, person-centered approach to therapy that helps people find the answers that were inside them all along. As a therapist, I am intuitive and compassionate, yet direct, and employ a mix of modalities, including traditional psychotherapy, cognitive therapy and mindfulness techniques.

I am a LGBTQIA + affirming provider, and enjoy working with queer , trans and gender creative clients.
I believe therapy can be a space to try on new ways of thinking and being, building insight and self-awareness so you can overcome blocks to creating the life you deeply desire. You can expect me to work hard to understand you and your history, offering an equal mix of nurturing, education and clear sighted perspective. We’ll work together to chart a vision for the road ahead, noting areas for growth, needed skills, and current strengths and resources. In session, and in life, my style is informal, warm, playful and compassionate. I bring a body-positive, sex-positive, feminist and anti-oppressive lens to my work.

I am White, queer , non-binary, and a parent.
Feeling stuck or overwhelmed isn’t proof there’s something wrong with you; it’s proof you want to take the courageous path to grow and heal. Most of the folks I work with are unhappy with the patterns that play out in their lives and are looking for something better. They often wonder if deep down there is something wrong with them. My belief is that you are not wrong - you are human. Our troubling patterns are often protections built to survive the perils of bad relationships, trauma, and systemic oppression. Dismantling these patterns and building new ones can lead you to a more hopeful, more connected life.
