I love to take an integrated approach to working with people and seeing people in the context of all aspects of their lives. As a queer, nonbinary transgender person I am passionate about intersectional social justice and working towards a world in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity. I enjoy working with people from all backgrounds, however, I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ people, people with co-occurring disorders, and persons living with HIV.

My professional experiences include working with underrepresented populations in outpatient and residential settings, developing psychotherapy programs for individuals in the transgender and LGBQ+ communities, and integrating somatic (body) healing into talk therapy.
I believe you are the expert on your life. Within you exists the potential to fully express your whole, authentic self in ways that are fulfilling to you and respectful of others. There are times in all of our lives in which our experiences--psychological, social, physical, spiritual--evoke distressing emotions. These emotions can take the form of depression, anxiety, confusion, anger, or fear. When this happens, our abilities to fully and authentically understand and express ourselves often decreases and we may seek professional support. This is where I may be of service.

I have expertise in working with individuals who are transgender and gender-expansive, as well as the greater LGBTQIA2S+ community.
Every person needs a secure space where they can become their most authentic selves. I strive to approach therapy with radical genuineness, compassion, warmth, and humor. I believe that therapy at its best is a creative, judgment-free space between equals. This creates an environment where you can be yourself and learn to manage thoughts and emotions getting in your way. I like to incorporate techniques from DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered Therapy, attachment theory, body-centered approaches, sports psychology, mindfulness, body positivity, trauma-informed practices, and sometimes a dash of geek culture references.

Everyone just wants to be happy, right? I feel that people are not their problems and that we must learn to separate ourselves from them so we do not feel shame or stigma in order to achieve our desired goals. I am a systemic thinker and want to understand an individuals view of the world, their environment, and what they want out of life.

The point of therapy is to talk about your feelings. Is it really that simple? Well… yes and no. Emotion plays an important role in how the nervous system (brain, nerves, and spinal cord) works. Unfortunately, we often learn to push away or ignore our emotions, which prevents the nervous system from self-regulating. On a neurological level, processing our feelings helps us to adapt to stress and heal from trauma. That’s why bottling up our emotions is tied to depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems. So…the point of therapy is to talk about your feelings. :)
