About My Clients

Seeking happiness is a natural human experience. For my clients, happiness tends to be more elusive than for those who have not had similar experiences as them. Through counseling, we'll explore what areas of your life that may be holding you back from happiness. You'll also get a personal plan and recommendations to help you create happiness and peace. We'll then walk through the plan together, with support, encouragement, and therapeutic techniques to assist you reach your goals.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working with adults with a trauma history, including those with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, adults who experienced abuse, neglect, or other traumatic experience‚Äč during childhood, and adults with a sexual assault history‚Äč. 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.
