About My Clients

If you're a queer person recovering from a toxic relationship or childhood abuse, it's hard to trust yourself. You don't understand why you snap at your partner for no reason. You only feel safe when you're with your animals, in nature, or alone You grew up with messages that who you are and who you love are not ok. Is it any wonder that you struggle to love yourself? You're ready for a healthy, committed relationship--you're just not sure how to let the past stop haunting you.

My Background and Approach

I utilize a trauma-focused, person-centered approach to look at you as a whole person, not just your symptoms. Instead of asking "what's wrong with you?", I ask "What has happened to you?". The patterns that kept you safe growing up don't work anymore - but how could you let them go? Your trauma is like a friend that is always looking out for you - even when it doesn't need to. There IS hope. I can teach you skills to better handle your emotions, communicate your needs, and feel safe again. I can be a witness to stories of pain that you haven't told anyone because no one believed you. I'll guide you as you start to reveal the person you always wanted to be, before society or your family told you it was wrong.
