About

The journey tends to be complex, layered and somewhat unpredictable. At times, life can seem completely out of control, leading to feelings of anxiety, and depression. This effects many areas of our lives, including our sex lives. I focus on my client's regaining control and strive to help them actualize their goals through a supportive, positive, unconditional helping environment. I focus on clients as a whole person. I am a trauma informed, integrative counselor that derives a majority of my practice from a cognitive based theory. If we change our thinking, we change our lives. I am also getting my PhD in clinical sexology.
I have been in the field since 2013 providing psychotherapy regarding LGBTQ+ issues, addiction, sex, couples therapy, trauma, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, and mood disorders. I have provided psychotherapy to children/young adults and their families. I also work with a Great Dane, he sits in on sessions with clients that are comfortable.
I aim to provide the balance of supportive and directive guidance for my clients. Many times, we need an outside eye to help us see the rooting of disturbances in our lives. I curate each intervention to the needs of my client, keeping in mind that they are the expert on their own life.
