About

I am an openly queer and transgender clinical mental health counselor. I have a passion for working with marginalized populations, particularly serving LGBTQIA+ clients in rural communities. I strive to make my office environment affirming and approachable. I utilize a person-centered approach to counseling because I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own life and experiences. Whatever your life experiences may be, and the obstacles you have faced along the way, I am here to work with you. I will collaboratively set goals with you and you will be an active participant in your treatment every step of the way.
I have experience working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have experience and knowledge surrounding LGBTQIA+ identities, non-monogamous relationships, sex work, Pagan religions, progressive disabilities, body acceptance, and many more marginalized groups. I strive to create a safe environment for you to be authentic to yourself.
I provide services to clients age 13 and older through telehealth and at our in person office in Storm Lake. I am also a Heartmath certified professional. If you are in need of a non-judgemental space to talk, please don’t hesitate to reach out. “The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.” - Carl Rogers.
