About My Clients

As a non-binary and queer clinician, I’m passionate about supporting LGBTQIA+ people who want to improve their lives, work through deeper issues, and live authentically. I work with clients who may want to focus on issues related to sexuality, gender, or identity; and clients who just need a therapist who understands, so that other issues like mental health challenges, relationships, attachment, self-esteem, or self-acceptance can be the focus of our work together.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic style is warm, direct, and collaborative and my clinical specialties include working with clients who are exploring gender expression, identity, or transition, sexuality, relationships and attachment, and neurodivergent identities. If you are struggling with feelings of shame, anxiety, depression, overwhelm, experiencing lack of family acceptance, discrimination, or oppression - you are absolutely not alone. We’ll work together to increase self-acceptance, improve your relationships, and build self-worth. We’ll explore ways to identify feelings, stressors, strengths, needs, and challenges, while cultivating new skills and practices to help you live well. Areas of Practice and Special Interest: LGBTQIA+ Populations, Gender Expression, Exploration, and Transition, Neurodivergent Identities, Attachment and Relationships, Anxiety, Depression, Mood Disorders, Trauma Recovery, PTSD, C-PTSD, Stress Identification and Management, Grief and Loss of Companion Animals/Pets.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal is to provide a caring, validating space where you will feel truly seen, heard, and understood. I practice from an anti-racist, person-centered, trauma-informed, and de-pathologizing perspective. I am a sex positive and body positive clinician and I offer a safe and competent space; affirming of sexual diversity, fluidity, polyamory, monogamy, kink, BDSM, sexuality professionals, and other relational styles and identities. I look forward to working with you!
