I listen to understand. I want you to be who you want to be and feel safe doing it! You have a right to feel safe and be yourself. My job is to provide you that safe space without any judgement! I understand the unique needs of the LGBTQIA community, including lived experience.
I specialize in LGBTQIA+ trauma. I offer safety, specialized training in trauma, and a place to be yourself.
I have lived experience as member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and I offer online counseling throughout Missouri, Ohio and Virginia. You CAN feel content, calm, and accepted.
