I am accepting new clients! I work with adults of any age and walk of life. I am trained and experienced in providing EMDR treatment for symptoms related to adverse life experiences. I have expertise in working with LGBTQIA+ populations and in particular, those navigating issues related to gender identity. My clinical focus revolves around bolstering clients' existing strengths, support networks, personal growth, and resiliency. My background allows me to provide mental health services in a connective way while being both innovative and flexible in my work.
I specialize in areas of identifying and healing from trauma, LGBTQ identities, gender transition, mental illness, and family conflict. I strive to create a welcoming nonjudgmental atmosphere of acceptance while utilizing evidence-based practices.
I welcome those experiencing difficulty getting their struggles out verbally, in emotional pain, dealing with insecurity and self-doubt, anger, isolation, and sadness. Contact me for more about my areas of expertise.
