I worked with diverse populations, including LGBTQ and communities of color.
I have always believed my purpose in life has been to be an advocate and voice for others who would otherwise remain silent and unheard. Counseling has allowed me to fulfill that purpose for my clients and throughout my professional career, I have provided compassionate counseling services in varied social service settings. I am an experienced, dedicated and insightful mental healthcare professional with over 25 years experience in both individual, family and group counseling. My experiences are broad and cover academic and career counseling which evolved into job coaching for young to older adults from many walks of life.

In addition to being a general practitioner, I also offer specialized treatment to the LGBTQIA + community and pet bereavement services.
You are taking an important first step by investing in yourself with therapy. Let’s understand your experiences better and work toward developing happiness. I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy; which, essentially, means that I attend to the cause and not just the symptom. You do your best to say whatever comes to mind and I do the rest! I work in the areas of depression, anxiety, identity or stage-of-life issues, illness, loss, difficulty trusting your decisions, fluctuating self-esteem, career, and relationship struggles (with family, friends, or significant others).

I have experience working with those within the LGBTQ + community and their families, as well as, those with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, grief and loss, and relational conflicts.
Welcome, thank you for taking the first step in your journey of self-love. In an ever-changing world filled with twists, turns, and unexpected outcomes it can be challenging to develop a self-care routine that promotes a strong sense of both, self-esteem and self-love. During our work together we will share a safe, confidential, and nonjudgemental space for you to tell your story, as we embark on this journey of discovery and self-love. Collectively we'll work towards developing a deeper understanding of who you are and what it looks like for you to share your story.

You want to improve your communication skills, decrease reactivity, and bring intention to your daily life and relationships. You have experienced trauma and want a safe space to unpack it's impact. You are ready to grow, but finding a therapist that can relate to you is a challenge. As a queer , polyamorous, first-generation American woman, I know what it is like to feel misunderstood, underrepresented, and unheard in a therapy room. I welcome individuals with intersectional identities and work hard to provide affirming care to LGBTQIA , BIPOC, BDSM/kink, and consensual non-monogamous individuals, relationships, and communities.
