About My Clients
I have experience working with the entire lifespan as well as families and couples. Many of my patients have experienced complex trauma and may struggle with anxiety, depression, dissociation, shame, codependency, grief, and relationships. I also work with many patients within the LGBTQIA and poly communities. Several of my patients explore layers in their intersectional identities in race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and faith/spirituality.
My Background and Approach
I believe therapy is a collaborative process grounded in a trusting, therapeutic relationship. In my role, I provide the compassionate space for you to begin self-reflection and explore ways to initiate changes in your life. The therapy relationship becomes the safe, working model to practice communication. Part of my style is helping you embrace uncertainty in the transformation process, clarify your values, and explore your relationship with your thoughts, emotions, and body. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (CCTS), and a member of WPATH. I am also certified in the Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method, incorporating gentle somatic practices into the healing process. I have completed continuing education training on working with transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive adults and youth. I practice as a LGBTQIA++, Poly, Kink affirmative clinician and from a trauma-informed, holistic focus.
