About My Clients

My clients often experience low self-esteem, overwhelming depression and anxiety, and fear counseling isn't really going to help. I help my clients find healing on a deeper level so they can finally get relief from the pain and feel good about their lives.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working with adults with a history of an unhealthy, abusive, and neglectful childhood. I help my clients heal on a deeper level so they can get relief from the pain and finally feel good about their lives. I also specialize in working with the LGBTQ community, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, or queer; transgender, gender non-binary, gender fluid, or gender queer; polyamorous or non-monogamous; and kink. I utilize a Feminist Therapeutic approach, which means I understand concerns with the view that cultural influences significantly contribute to a person's symptoms. I also recognize the imbalances of power in society and work to empower individuals through highlighting their strengths. I also believe it is important to heal on multiple levels, including physiologically, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually and utilize multiple techniques to find that balance.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify as a queer, cis female. I have been passionate about working with the LGBTQ community for as long as I can remember and this significantly influenced my focus in training, education, and career focus. I also identify as an intersectional feminist, holding a strong belief that all people deserve equality and we must work together to support & uplift each other.
