About

My clients are often motivated to begin therapy as an investment in self. Whether you are curious about how your unprocessed past may be affecting your present, you are dealing with anxiety or depression, or are looking for skills to develop healthier relationships, we will work together to determine your therapeutic path. We will identify narratives that have shaped your reactions and worldview, deconstruct what no longer serves you, and equip you with tools to thrive beyond survival. As a queer clinician, I offer an informed and affirmative space for LGBTQ+ communities.
My approach to therapy rests on a few foundational assumptions: you are not inherently flawed, you have unique and valuable strengths, and even your "maladaptive" coping skills have arrived in response to your surroundings. Sessions will leave you curious, empowered, and turned toward healing.
Our collaborative therapeutic relationship will reflect your values, pace, and goals. If you're ready to dive in, or if you'd like to learn more about my practice, browse my website to learn more or book a session. Let's heal.
