Do you struggle navigating life? Do you wish you could increase your understanding and skills to make life less challenging? The good news is therapy can help you gain control over your life and pursue your dreams. Life is beautiful, but there are many tools that we as humans need to reach our full potential. Low confidence, readiness to change, trouble communicating, and lack of social support are just some barriers that can prevent you from getting “unstuck.” As a member of the Queer community, I empathize with these experiences and I have done intensive work personally and professionally that has changed my life for the better.
I’ve dedicated my life to helping people and believe that counseling empowers you to make better decisions for yourself. Given your unique life experience, I will aid you in identifying your strengths, obstacles, and setting incremental goals. With a passion for social and racial justice, I'm also grounded in Feminist theory, identity, and intersectionality.
You'll learn how to combat unhealthy thinking, let go how who you “should” be, and develop coping mechanisms for difficult situations. My Clients feel validated, motivated, and seen. If you are looking for a genuine and authentic connection with a counselor who is your champion, click on “my website” on the right for a free phone consultation.
