As a queer- and transgender-identified therapist, I am continually inspired and motivated by the strength and resiliency of the LGBTQ+ community and those who support them.
If you are wrestling with topics related to your sexuality, gender identity, relationship dynamics, or religious/spiritual trauma, I would love to support you in finding harmony with who you are and how you relate to the world around you. I view clients as the experts of their own experience and seek to come alongside you as a collaborative partner in better understanding yourself and reaching your goals. I will meet you where you are with an approach that is sex/body/kink/poly-positive, culturally humble, empathetic, and compassionate.

I work with children, from preschool through teens, families, and adults. Young children often manifest their emotions and experiences through their behavior, and I use art therapy, play therapy, sandtray techniques, and a positive, warm connection to help work through and translate their inner experience. With older children and adults, I personalize the therapeutic sessions using a blend of art therapy, sand tray, and traditional talk therapy to explore and transform areas of difficulty.
