About

Greetings! I am a gay, white cisgender therapist whose passion is working with LGBTQ clients. I specialize in working with clients with depression, anxiety, and trauma along with identity challenges tied to sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious rejection. As a therapist, I help reduce shame and stigma around mental health, and introduce a range of grounding skills to both calm and boost ourselves. My approaches include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for intense emotions, Internal Family Systems (IFS) for responses that feel automatic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for negative thinking.
I believe my job as a therapist is to be more than just a supportive listener, or simply someone who provides exercises to complete. Effective therapy should combine both in a way that fits you as a client. We will work together to find the right pace so you are moving into new areas while not feeling overwhelmed.
I think therapy succeeds when the professional relationship and therapy approach really work together. I applaud you for taking a big and courageous step in getting started. Therapy is very personal and vulnerable, and really honor the private info you entrust to me. I hope I can be both a partner that supports and a clinician that can help treat and heal.
