About

Hello! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with over nine years of experience working in community mental health, including five years as a psychotherapist. I believe that when we're able to live as authentically, honestly, and purposefully as we can, we feel more satisfaction, connection, and peace. I believe that awareness, curiosity, and self-compassion are powerful and necessary tools for growth, and that how we make meaning - of our lives, relationships, and the world - is deeply connected to our ability to live a fulfilling life.
I enjoy working with members of the LGBTQIA community, especially trans and gender non-conforming folks. I have training and experience working with clients who've experienced trauma, including intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and traumatic loss. I'm also skilled at helping clients develop healthy boundaries and communication skills.
My approach is grounded in building a genuine and compassionate relationship with each client, and I'm guided by feminist, person-centered principles that prioritize discussing how power, oppression, and intersecting identities play a role in our lives. I'm trauma-informed and use mindfulness-based interventions, narrative & CBT tools, metaphor and humor.
