About My Clients
I find that I do my best work with adolescents and adults who are motivated and driven to improve their lives. Whether you are facing major life changes, relationship issues, difficulties with your mental health, or are simply looking to better yourself, I am here to help. I have a particular interest in working with folks from the LGBTQ+ community. I am an LGBTQ+ and Gender Affirmative therapist. I believe everyone should be treated with respect and free to be their authentic selves always.
My Background and Approach
I believe it is important to take time to foster a warm and professional relationship with each client. Because everyone is unique, it’s most effective to draw inspiration from many different therapy approaches to tailor treatment in a way that is right for each individual. I welcome collaboration and encourage open and honest communication. My hope is that you will feel comfortable enough to address any concerns you may have and vice-versa. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including community mental health, inpatient programs, crisis, and outpatient settings. I’ve worked with issues ranging from severe mental illness, depression/anxiety, phase of life problems, relationship struggles, and LGBTQ+ specific issues. I employ a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, psycho-dynamic, and solution-focused therapy. I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing, CBT, CBTp, LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, and HIV/AIDS counseling.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe everyone should be treated with respect and free to be their authentic selves in all settings. As a member of the community, I understand the nuances of LGBTQ+ issues. Whether it’s talking about coming out, alternative relationships, love and hookup culture, there’s no need to go through the awkwardness of explaining these things, I get it. If you are struggling or simply looking for strategies to better yourself, reach out!
