I am devoted to working working with the LGBTQIA + Community in individual and relationship therapy.
Life can be challenging, especially when you are perceived as different. The world can be cruel to people who are unique and it can lead to feelings of: shame, loneliness, anxiety, fear, and sadness. Please know that you are not alone in this. I offer a safe place where you can allow your authentic self to emerge. Through our connection in therapy, we can explore your challenges and strengths. Using our relationship in session as a guide, you will have the opportunity to discover new insights and move towards your goals. My work centers on helping relationships and adults.

I identify as Queer and prefer they/them pronouns.
***I am not currently accepting new clients*** Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use an individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ +, sexuality, non-binary and transgender , complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/Kink, and other dynamics.

Anyone who has ever experienced a challenging life event knows how scary it can be to talk to someone about it. Healing from these experiences is a process. If you're reading this, then you are already taking one of the most challenging steps in that process: reaching out. I am an LGBTQ -affirming licensed counselor located in Central Austin. I specialize in working with "lost ones" or individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, a difficult life transition, relationship or sexuality issues, or just feeling disconnected or "stuck."

As a member of the LGBTQ + and Latinx communities, I bring a sense of genuineness, compassion, and curiosity to my work.
You might be dealing with some intense circumstances, feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. Having a nonjudgmental guide help sort through current and past pain can help make that process more manageable. As that guide, I am excited to help you turn down the volume of life's busyness, tune in to your inner self, and uncover unmet emotional needs. As you enter the safe haven of therapy each week, you will gain a freedom to be authentically you, learn how to better handle distress, and find ways to heal from past wounds that bog you down in current relationships.

I can help address childhood and relational trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, low self-esteem, LGBTQIA + topics and building coping skills in a safe space that allows for growth and learning.
Are you feeling stuck or not listened to in your relationships? Are you finding yourself having the same arguments? Does it feel like you and your partner are speaking different languages? Or do you simply have a feeling that something isn’t working, that you’re disconnected from your partner or loved ones? Set yourself and your relationship up for success by engaging in relational therapy. Together we can understand why you’re both feeling stuck in your relationship and work to create new, healthier communication cycles. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Narrative Therapy which helps ground and facilitate this process.
