I believe we should all have access to a space where we can be open and honest with who we are and what we need to thrive. It is important to me that I support individuals in cultivating such a space with safety and freedom of feelings, thoughts and emotions. We all deserve a chance to thrive in life and find some sense of peace and understanding of experiences that make us who we are. I am here to challenge any notions that you cannot be your best self and find solace in that.

My perspective is that it's important to encompass intersectional and cultural competency. Challenge societal expectations as well as theoretical framework. I have worked with adults, adolescents as well as Individuals in recovery. My background includes LGBTQ individuals and families who experience anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, PTSD and family conflict.

I believe it is important I approach each individual from an intersectional, social justice, person-centered, trauma informed and strength based lens. I strive to support and promote body positivity, self-esteem as well as affirmation in one's experience. Supporting individuals and families with gender and sexual identity affirmation
