About

The challenges that are presented in your life can greatly affect the quality of your life. I assist individuals in finding direction by utilizing an affirming, empowering, and judgment-free approach in a safe environment. I specialize in trauma and dissociative symptoms and work with the LGBTQ+, transgender, gender expressive, sex worker, poly, and kink communities. My approach to counseling is to meet you where you are and work together to meet collaborative treatment goals.
I believe that every person is entitled to a healthy and balanced life. Through psychotherapy, we can explore meaning, opportunity, and hope in your life. During our time together, we can create individualized tools to help you cope with your life's challenges and meet your goals. You do not have to go on your life journey alone.
I provide video telecounseling sessions which allow clients to meet in the comfort of their homes or other private places. I provide continuing education to other mental healthcare clinicians on issues such as trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, and play therapy.
