I have experience working with LGBTQ + adolescents and adults on transitions, identity integration, self-esteem, and grief.
You’re a teenager, and the anxiety about your gender and sexuality is keeping you from feeling truly loved and wanted by your parents and friends. You’re in a relationship dreading the day you have to tell them your identity wasn't quite what you thought it was. You're life since coming out is better than it ever was before...but you're still plagued with indecision, self-consciousness, and a doubt that says things will never get better. I get it. I get you. And as you learn to communicate clearly, express yourself fully, and assert boundaries with others, you can experience the understanding and peace that you long for every day.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, confused, or lost? Maybe the stresses of work or school, uncertainty in relationships, or struggles with unhelpful behaviours are preventing you from living a fulfilling, authentic life. Sometimes we all need some additional support to understand the many moving pieces in our lives and figure out how to arrange them in a way that is not only manageable, but satisfying and enjoyable. I have a passion for helping LGBTQIA + folks, young adults, and men from all walks of life facing anxiety, depression, or general dissatisfaction arrange their life in a way that provides joy, actualisation, and peace.

But even further, with your willingness to work and the knowledge, experience, and expertise I've developed over the years, we will walk together towards the life you hope for. I have seen near countless LGBTQ + people find the freedom, hope, self-love, and sense of safety they have longed for. I hope you will be next.

Seeking mental health is an important step towards general well-being. Just as you would not be expected to simply “tough out” a broken leg, for instance, neither should you do the same for depression, anxiety, or even more importantly, finding yourself at a crossroads and uncertain what to do next. I am here to lend a non-judgmental ear, and to help you move through difficult aspects of your life. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, uncertainty about paths forward in life, and addiction for adults, and with a particular interest in the LGBTQ population.

My experience includes working with adolescents and their families in PHP and IOP settings, crisis intervention and de-escalation, and development of LGBTQIA + specific services.
It’s an incredibly brave thing to reach out for help when you need it, and I’m proud of you for taking that step. As a person who uses her own lived experience with mental health and the search for identity, I can say with certainty that the best way through them is together. It is my passion to walk through those challenges hand in hand with teens and young adults who are open to the journey, no matter where they’re starting from. Reaching out for help is simply the first step!

I am also very in tune with LGBT individuals and those with gender identity issues who may feel alone, misunderstood or lacking a healthy support system.
Life can be overwhelming sometimes, to the point that you feel like nothing will change, and although I understand how hard it is to admit you need help - you deserve to be happy. I believe in addressing the "whole" person - mind, body, and spirit. Everyone has the ability to heal, sometimes they just need help tapping into their innate strengths and wisdom. My goal is to help you discover what is lacking in your life, what is good, what needs changing, and empower you to do what is best for you.

I also like to bring humor into therapy whenever possible! I support the Health at Every Size (HAES) and intuitive eating philosophies in my disordered eating work, and am LGBTQ + affirming.
I know it might not feel like it at times, but being miserable is optional! Life is too short to spend it being stuck in that place... There IS hope, and making an appointment is a great step towards your new future. In addition to working with depression and anxiety, I specialize in helping clients with addictions, eating disorders, and self-harm issues break free from these destructive, but powerful patterns. If you can relate to being stuck in some (or all) of those, I can help! My years of clinical experience have allowed me to work with people of all ages, races, genders, body sizes, and sexual orientations.

I have an extensive background working with children, troubled teens and their parents, as well as Gay , Lesbian and Transexual individuals.
Therapy can be very helpful in addressing problems you may be having in your life. If you struggle with relationship problems, decision making, depression, anxiety, self esteem, impluse control, trauma, substance abuse, grief, addiction or life transitions; I can provide a neutral non-judgmental space to explore and resolve these issues. Many people believe they should be able to solve problems on their own and seek help often waiting until the situation has grown unmanageable. However, early interventions and proactive actions tend to lesson the impact of painful experiences, allowing you to move past problems more easily and quickly.

What type of Allen mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Allen?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
