About My Clients

I specialize in trauma, substance use and addiction and provide LGBTQIA+ affirmative care. Many of my clients have traits of Highly Sensitive People, have people pleasing tendencies, and are looking to gain perspective and build more confidence in navigating their world.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic style is very relational, person centered, non-pathologizing, and utilizes Compassionate Inquiry, IFS and Equine Assisted Life Coaching. I also practice from a social justice oriented lens, and appreciate each client’s unique intersectionality. Together we can examine your perceptions and how they were created, gain more clarity on your life experiences, connect you back to your body, find compromise between the different parts of you that may be in conflict, and explore how cultural and generational events have shaped you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer therapist and someone who strongly values reducing harm and increasing compassion, I provide care from a LGBTQIA+ affirmative, anti-racist, social justice oriented lens. I am also vegan, extending my social justice interest beyond human rights into both animal welfare and environmental justice. Your unique intersectionality is so important to your experience, and I would love to help you explore how this intersectionality has impacted you. When choosing a therapist, it is important to find someone you connect to and see yourself being safe with. I offer you a free consultation to see if I’m a good match for your current needs. Feel free to check out my website gnecenter.com or my instagram @healwithgoodnature to get more of a preview to my approach. I am looking forward to starting this journey together!
