I work with adults and teens of varying cultural backgrounds struggling with issues including, but not limited to, LGBTQ + issues, gender identity issues, body image, self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, grief, sexuality, PTSD, and personality disorder.
Working from a multicultural perspective that employs a Person-centered approach, I am able to gain a holistic perspective of you. Throughout your therapy, we will collaborate as we tend to your inner life; both the light and shadow. I will listen to you closely with care and curiosity, and without judgment. I align closely with Jungian theory and primarily use Psychodynamic Therapy. By helping you find and recognize patterns in your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs, you can gain insight into yourself. I find this approach fosters individuation and integration, allowing for wholeness and becoming the highest version of yourself.

I'm now taking new clients! I strive to put clients at ease with a warm, inviting, down-to-earth style. Clients with trauma histories, PTSD, anxiety, and panic attacks will especially feel at peace. Many people who come to see me also struggle with depression, self-esteem issues, religious trauma, or identity confusion. Clients will find our work to be supportive and empowering. I particularly love working with individuals in the LGBTQ + community.

I also specialize in working with those who identify as LGBTQ + and couples who are experiencing problems in their relationships surrounding communication, intimacy and sex.
As a therapist, I work with individuals and couples who are seeking positive change in their life and relationships. Change can feel daunting, and finding the right person to help you through the process is important. I offer a relaxed atmosphere for therapy, where humor and lightheartedness can be incorporated into our professional relationship, when appropriate. If this appeals to you, and if you’re ready to work towards change, I may be the right therapist for you.

As a member of the kink, polyamory, and LGBT + communities, I'm especially aware of the many difficulties that can surround living openly.
Do you feel alone, lost, or broken? Maybe it's been a long time since you truly felt seen and heard by the friends, family, and partners most important to you. Is this how you prefer to live? How much longer can you pretend it's sustainable? It's my belief that you are not broken and you are not the problem. You are a whole person whose relationships are being robbed by the problem. You deserve to find a new way of living that honors your best hopes and truest self. Whether you are a couple, family, or individual, Other Spaces therapy can help you find your voice so you can live more authentically.

I am queer , trans , and neurodiversity affirming.
I provide psychotherapy to children, teens, and emergent adults using an integrative relational or play-centered approach. I specialize in working young people who are curious about themselves but may feel adrift, alienated, misunderstood, or just tired and angry. For most of us, it makes sense to feel weary, outraged, anxious, or demoralized right now. It does not have to make sense to carry the weight of it alone.

I am a member of the LGBTQIA + community and enjoy working with such clients.
INDIVIDUALS: Sometimes, our emotions are like a network of painful roots: buried, somehow connected, popping up everywhere. If we’ve avoided these emotions, it can be overwhelming to begin exploring them. In my work, I gently guide your journey inward - towards your authentic self - so that we can tend to this pain with care. || RELATIONSHIPS: There are points when our relationships can feel disconnected or intense. Once we establish such patterns, it can feel like ruts in a dirt road that pull us in every time. Together, we will work to create new paths of connection that feel natural and consistent.

For over 20 years I've been helping people reclaim their personal power and live a life of greater authenticity and fulfillment. I help clients address past wounds, build self-esteem, connect with their authentic values, and address obstacles that keep them from feeling happy in their relationships and careers. I use a blend of traditional psychotherapy, life coaching and spiritual teachings to help my clients thrive. For LGBT clients and family members dealing with coming out issues I support them in authentic self-expression, honesty, and self-acceptance.

I have an extensive background in working with BIPOC supervisees and mentees addressing a variety of clinical issues with particular specialties in working with individuals, children, and families in the LGBTQIA + communities, marginalized and underserved communities, and those who have experienced trauma.
I love to work with supervisees and mentees (supervision of supervision) as we grow, laugh, and learn together. The process of deepening knowledge, experience, and wisdom can be rewarding for both the supervisor and supervisee. I approach supervision/mentorship from a structural supervision perspective as I believe we all thrive with the right balance of structure and support. I use a good amount of humor and curiosity in my approach, as I believe the elements of fun, delight and joy are important parts of the professional growth process. If we work together, you will be challenged and you will be uplifted.
