The special focuses of my practice are LGBTQIA + issues and non-traditional relationships.
As a therapist, I strive to create an environment that affirms who you are as a person. Therapy involves some of our most vulnerable experiences and my practice centers on being supportive so you feel secure while exploring ways to improve your daily life. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. So much of a positive human experience involves being heard and validated by others, especially in our own homes. I will work with you and your loved ones to learn healthy communication skills to improve your relationships, increase acceptance and understanding in the home, and learn to manage conflict in a healthy manner.

I specialize in treating members of the LGBTQIA + community.
Developing your personal and relational identity is the top focus of the therapy I provide. My goal as your provider is to help you reach your full potential for growth and happiness. I help those who are experiencing gender dysphoria, sexuality concerns, mood disturbance, anxiety issues, behavioral issues, trauma survivors, and those who are self-harming or suicidal reconnect with whom they are essentially. I believe it is imperative to identify and examine systemic, environmental, and community influences that may be thwarting your growth and decrease self-blame for factors outside your control.

I have worked with veterans, domestic violence survivors, survivors of human trafficking, children, adolescents, autistic youth, and LGBTQIA + youth.
Sometimes dark places need flashlights. Early in my education to become a therapist, I learned being allowed to walk with someone during a dark time in their life is an honor. As a therapist it is my intention to deserve that honor and to be a flashlight of sorts to help remove those emotional filters which often darken our experiences.

Rachel Held Evans wrote that "we live inside an unfinished story." Are you lacking clarity about what you want to do with your life? Did you have a difficult or confusing childhood, and now struggle with connection to others? Did you experience a traumatic event or relationship that has been difficult to overcome on your own? Do you struggle in relationships and wonder why you have the same problems time and time again? Do you have a chronic illness and experience the emotional pain, disappointment, and despair it can bring? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you write the rest of your story.

I have research, internship, and work experience working with individuals who identify as LGBTQ , both survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence, individuals suffering from significant mental health and drug and alcohol issues, individuals suffering from psychosis, adolescents with impulse control and anger issues, and older adults with dementia and other mental health issues.
I enjoy working with individuals on such concerns as meaning-making, identity, self-esteem, and empowerment. I believe in taking an active stance in building your own life story; thus, I often take a narrative approach to therapy. I tend to be integrative in technique, however, as best suits a client's particular needs.

As someone who identifies as QUEER , I've done the work myself, and will bring my expertise and experience to our sessions. People can change if they are willing to. Perhaps you grew up in an environment that tamped down your optimism and served you limiting beliefs about yourself and the world. Trauma, failures, and heartbreak may have limited your ability to excel or embrace yourself fully. By constructing a more accurate, compassionate, and hopeful narrative about your life, you can make new choices for yourself, practice new ways of living, and eventually change how you think, feel, relate, and achieve.

I see adults of all ages for a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQIA + issues, stress management and life transitions.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in Person-Centered therapy in which the relationship between client and clinician is a priority and is based in mutual trust and respect, empathy and congruence. I use integrative techniques in every session to meet the unique needs of each client, such as CBT, trauma-informed therapy and mindfulness-based therapy. I believe that individuals are experts on themselves and because of this I take a collaborative approach in working with clients, utilizing what is known as Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) to get client input in evaluating progress and clients’ needs.

As a Black, Queer , and Non-binary therapist, I know how difficult it can be to find places that feel secure and affirming.
Finding a therapist who validates and reflects core aspects of your identity can be difficult. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to feel accepted, respected, and understood. I appreciate working with a diverse group of clients, especially individuals from marginalized and underserved communities (BIPOC, Trans , Queer , & GNC). My practice is sex positive and ENM-affirming. My approach is intersectional, collaborative, and based in a social justice framework.
