About

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. So why therapy now? What are your hopes and dreams for the future? Problems only survive when they are supported by particular beliefs and principles. This can feel like a relentless need to escape a moment that never ends. Exploring the details and effects of these obstacles will help lead to different outcomes not yet discovered.
I am interested in the collaborative journey of understanding these habitual beliefs that saturate our daily lives. My goal is to help find alternative stories that support and nurture preferred possibilities in life.
I am experienced in working with the LGBTQ+ community: Trans, adolescents, addiction, grief, couples, parents, and families. Some of my specializations include anxiety, depression, peer conflict, interpersonal relationship issues, and phase of life adjustments. Please visit my website for more information.
