Not Accepting Clients

Hi! I am an LMFT who specializes in working with queer and trans folks who have developmental/complex trauma histories.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Minnesota


About My Clients

I enjoy working with adult individuals who want to process past trauma and relearn how to feel safe in the present. I frequently work with people who grew up in dysfunctional families, and have experienced neglect and abuse in close relationships. These experiences often lead to secondary challenges such as depression, anxiety, co-dependency, and relational concerns. I work with clients to reconnect to their authentic selves.

My Background and Approach

I hold a license as a marriage and family therapist, shaping my therapeutic approach through a holistic understanding of the interconnected systems influencing our lives and relationships. In our collaborative journey, I prioritize acknowledging your efforts with the available tools, guiding you to foster more fulfilling connections with yourself, community, and your experiences, and jointly crafting a narrative that instills hope and empowers your sense of control. I specialize in supporting queer and transgender individuals, those affected by developmental or complex trauma, and individuals managing mood disorders. With a background in community mental health care since 2015, I utilize an integrated psychotherapy approach encompassing various methodologies such as IFS, acceptance and commitment therapy, somatic experiencing, mindful self-compassion, narrative therapy, neurobiology, EMDR, brainspotting, and exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In addition to trauma-informed therapy, I offer support for gender-affirming procedures, providing gender therapy and assisting with the documentation required for medical gender-affirming procedures. ‚Äč I am also trained in psychedelic preparation and integration work, and I enjoy exploring the intersection of non-ordinary states of consciousness with the therapeutic process. In our therapeutic relationship, we will collaboratively create a safe space for exploration, delving into your past and navigating the path between where you currently stand and where you aspire to be.
