As a queer therapist I understand the complexities surrounding the dynamics of coming out, starting hormones/ social transitioning, dating within a small community, and trying be queer in a world that isn't supporting you. For couples navigating your interpersonal relationship and the stresses that are compounded by your outside responsibilities is hard and often make conflict more difficult. As your therapist we can work on setting goals surrounding coming out, transitioning, relationship issues, and managing the anxiety, depression, and trauma that accompanies the minority stress and burn out in your life.

Does every conversation seem to end in an argument? If any of this feels familiar, you are not alone! You may be a few small changes away from feeling better about your life, your relationships, and yourself.

I believe that every human being has uniqueness and potential to lead a satisfying life. I have continually sought personal growth and professional training to strengthen my capacity as a therapist. People experience results and growth in working with me, learn to cope with depression, resolve anxieties, improve intimate relationships, increase capacity for self control, develop effective parenting and better understanding of their children, overcome trauma like divorce or abuse, achieve better school performance, social skills, and find peace in their hearts.

Post-pandemic life is weird. Perhaps you find yourself wanting to do things, but can’t seem to motivate yourself to follow through. Maybe you're tired from doing too many things because you weren’t allowed to do anything fun for nearly three years. Perhaps the pandemic (or seeing "Barbie") has led you to question your relationship or even your identity... Whatever your situation, one thing for certain is that change is inevitable, and growth is optional. We can choose whether we want to lean into the changes around us, or resist them. If you are curious about how to lean in, talk therapy can help.

I believe we are not defined by our circumstances, but by our ability to deal with challenges, learn from them, and continue to live our authentic lives. My goal for clients I work with is to help them recognize their own natural strengths and abilities on their path to healing, transformation, and growth.

No matter what may bring you to therapy, I am honored to walk along with you as we explore opportunities for healing and growth.

My passion comes from life experiences & my desire to create positive changes in life. We all get stuck & that's part of being imperfectly human. There are times in life when we need someone to walk beside us in that stuckness entering the darkness - creating safety - allowing light to shine in new ways. Mindfully contemplating new ways of viewing & dealing with emotions & patterns surrounding emotions can be liberating, healing and life altering. I act as a choreographer of conversations, aimed to explore emotional connections & attachment injuries and impasses. As humans, we have a biological need to feel safe, secure & connected in our relationships.
