About My Clients

While most people think I only see teens and adolescents, that is not the case! I love working with adults too and watching them discover something new about themselves. My clients typically identify with the LGBTQ community, but that doesn't mean we are always focused on gender or sexuality. Sometimes that means working through trauma or navigating the scary waters of anxiety and learning how to quiet the mind.

My Background and Approach

My background includes quiet a bit of experience. I've worked in psych hospitals, both in the inpatient setting and intensive outpatient setting. With that experience, I've learned how to help clients work through some of their toughest times. I try to take the approach that is best for each individual client and what their needs might be. If you come in just having a tough week, I'm there to listen and help validate your feelings. When it comes to having a better week, those sessions we might go further into your trauma and anxiety and how to connect back with your body that you slowly pushed away. Also, I love working from the reality approach and this approach allows me to be a bit more abrasive and tests your own reality and thinking . I also understand this approach doesn't work for everyone. What ever approach you might need, I'm here to help you find the best one for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My previous experience was involved working at a few different psych hospitals. While I loved the upbeat work there, I wanted to do something more around prevention. I want to help keep you from getting to that crisis step. I've also heard a number of stories where client's previous therapists were not educated enough on the LGBTQ community or wanted to know more about non-binary or simply couldn't use the proper pronouns. I also have a deep love for animals. I currently have 3 dogs that can be in any session. Bailey is my Husky Shiba mix that is there the most,. Ben is my Jack Russel mix that can teach you how he deals with high anxiety, but also know how to cuddle on the couch. Everest, an Blue Heeler mix, is the youngest of the pack, but is only interested in walking or going to dog parks. We can do therapy there! When I'm not doing therapy, you can often find me outside or spending time with my Jeeps. Finding hobbies is so important in this busy world today.
