About My Clients

Are you having difficulty with self-esteem, acceptance or relationships? Are you tired of feeling alone on your journey? Early in my practice, I realized the need for therapists who are not only affirming but can also identify with the LGBTQ+ community. I understand issues facing the LGBTQ+ population. Clients will gain self-awareness leading to better relationship with self and others.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, supervised by Daniel Gowan, LPC-S. I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I am trained in EMDR (a treatment for trauma), and PIT (a therapy that treats the effects of childhood trauma). I use different modalities of therapy depending on my client's needs. I use family systems theory, DBT, CBT, EMDR, PIT and IFS. I specialize in LGBTQ+ issues, women's issues, addiction, codependency and trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal belief is we are not flawed but exactly as the universe intended us to be. Our struggles are meant to teach us the life lessons we are here to learn. We each have our own path, but it can be difficult to try and go it alone. Sometimes we need help, and I don't take it lightly when someone reaches out for help. I know the courage that goes into making that first call to a therapist. I would be honored to walk with you on your life's journey to help you reach your full potential. I am authentic and down-to-earth, and I truly care about my clients.
