About My Clients
I specialize in providing services to the LGBTQIA2S+ community but I am open, accepting, and affirmative of any identity, background, or culture. All I look for is an open mind and a willingness to grow. My clients tend to be experiencing depression or anxiety symptoms and many have experienced some type of trauma in their lives.
My Background and Approach
I take an eclectic approach, using all of my knowledge collectively to address the client's concerns the best I can and use what approaches best suit their needs. I have Bachelor's degrees in Art and Psychology and a Master's degree in Art therapy and Counseling. I currently have my LPC, NCC, and my ATR-P licenses. Since graduation, I have also sought out further training in trauma treatment, vicarious trauma, TFCBT, exposure therapy, LGBTQIA2S+ issues, cultural competencies and humility, and Circle of Safety.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a member of the LGBTQIA2S+, I keep a finger on the pulse of the community and their needs. I volunteer services at many events within the community. I currently work for a non-profit focusing on providing equal access to services for all. I am also body-positive, sex-positive, kink friendly, and practice from a racial justice framework. When I say I focus on providing equal access to services for all, I truly mean it. A little more about me: I'm a total nerd. I love tv, anime, movies, video games, and conventions. I have a very large board game collection (over 100 games) and love to bring them into sessions! I'd like to say I have a "mama bear" personality, but I have much more of a "cool/artsy aunt who lets you have too much ice-cream" vibe. I would feel privileged to welcome you to my office.
