About

Building community, living your own truth, and finding wholeness can be difficult -- especially during a pandemic. That is why finding support and affirmation is so important. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community with a commitment to antiracism, I am dedicated to providing quality care and creating a welcoming space that fosters courage, healing, and growth. With over 14 years of experience, I am prepared to work together to co-create an authentic plan toward achieving your goals. There is no perfect time to begin, and I welcome each person to come as you are, when you are ready. I provide online therapy to clients in both MI and CT.
As an affirming therapist, I specialize in creating a healing space for the LGBTQ+ community, as well as allies, family members, and connected individuals. I work with adults ages 18 and up, and with both individuals and couples. I have experience in supporting folks living with HIV and other health concerns. I welcome a focus on social justice and allyship.
My experience incorporates a tailored approach to suit the needs of each person. I integrate aspects of cognitive therapy, EMDR, IFS, mindfulness, creative expression, relational techniques, and trauma-informed care within the healing journey. Each person is on a unique path. Therapy offers an opportunity for depth, and I welcome you to reach out anytime.
