About My Clients

I believe everyone is doing their best with where they’re at in life. Sometimes life can get scary, stressful, and overwhelming. It helps to know you don’t have to go through hardships alone and that these feelings don’t have to last forever. I desire to create a safe, warm, and inclusive space where you are seen, understood, and known. You matter, and your mental health is worth supporting. I would be honored to hear your story and meet you with authenticity, acceptance, and support.

My Background and Approach

I am a Certified Trauma Professional and am passionate about helping people regulate their nervous systems and heal from trauma, sexual abuse, and PTSD. I also help people experience healing from anxiety, depression, stress, people-pleasing, perfectionism, codependency, unhealthy relationship dynamics, narcissistic abuse, self-esteem, intimacy concerns, and dissociative symptoms (including clients with DID). I'm a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner and utilize this powerful body-based modality to help my clients heal from trauma. I deeply value the relationships I form with my clients and getting to empower and support them as they rediscover/reclaim their incredible worth and value. When it comes to therapy, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Your unique life experiences, identity, and history are worth exploring. No matter the therapeutic method I may primarily utilize with you, I approach therapy with an inclusive view and will build upon your innate strengths.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I understand how important it is to find a therapist who welcomes you just as you are. You deserve to have an affirming therapist who supports you and can help you explore and process the various aspects of your identity that beautifully make you who you are. I hope to be a safe space where you can live more fully and authentically and, through therapy, come home to the wonderful you. Therapy can help you unpack, navigate, and work through any challenging situations that you have gone through and that may still be impacting the way you see yourself and others. Common topics I help my LGBTQIA+ clients with in therapy include processing past trauma, exploring their gender identity, coming out to family, sex therapy, working through any internalized transphobia or homophobia, increasing self-esteem, working through grief, and lessening the impact of anxiety and depression. I am here for you and would be honored to partner with you on your journey.
