About My Clients

Though my clients can be of any age, I specialize in helping teens or young adults that are looking for clarification regarding their next step in life. Maybe, they are experiencing anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD challenges, or symptoms from a past trauma. Oftentimes my clients are also exploring their gender or sexual identity as well as any other LGBTQ+ related concerns.

My Background and Approach

I have non judgmental and empathetic approach to therapy. I strive to provide a supportive and warm environment so that you can learn about yourself and grow into the person that you want to be. I enjoy using an eclectic approach of several different therapies to help clients to identify goals and develop coping skills for various challenges that they may have including anxiety, depression, ADHD, and trauma. I am an LGTBQ+ affirming therapist and I have specific knowledge regarding helping clients explore their identity, relationships, and sexuality. I am also a body positive therapist and I am very supportive of clients that may be struggling with body image or self esteem related concerns. I strive to be as supportive as possible to give my clients a safe space to learn more about themselves and their place in the world.
