I have had the privilege of working with a diverse set of clients with a wide range of backgrounds and needs. I offer a supportive space that counters the normativity within this culture that often is oppressive to people based on their identities. I recognize that what healing journey one person, relationship or family may need may be different than another and help to support you on that journey. In addition to being neurodivergent and transgender myself, I have also supported folks who are neurodivergent, queer and/or plural.

Thank you for taking this first step to care for yourself. While it's hard to seek help, it can change your life. Many individuals have been socialized to believe that they are the reason for all of their difficulties in life. I focus on how the problem is impacting your life and on how you can rediscover your strengths to create an alternative approach to your life, so the problem no longer defines your life. I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, PTSD and gender dysphoria, and have worked with individuals who identity as transgender or gender nonconforming and the LGBT community.
