About My Clients

People seeking improvement or understanding in their lives can almost always benefit from talking things through. Whether you want to explore childhood issues, heal from trauma, deal with work stress, address anxiety and depression symptoms, or something else, I can help you accomplish your goals. Having spent ten years in community mental health, I have worked with people from all walks of life, with all different needs, and feel comfortable talking with most people about most things.

My Approach to Helping

I utilize an eclectic combination of therapeutic methods depending on the individual and their needs, including cognitive-behavioral methods, person-centered/Rogerian, strengths-based, motivational, and narrative interviewing, with a strong emphasis on mindfulness and self-care. Over the last ten years, I have found this approach with these modalities to be helpful in improving self-esteem and creating lasting change.

Why I Became a Therapist

I truly enjoy working with all sorts of different folks, but a big reason I got into doing therapy was to provide understanding care to the - my - LGBTQ+ community. I had to do a lot of educating my own therapists when seeking care in high school and college, and it was frustrating because took time away from what I wanted to talk about. I think this type of experience is happening less and less (thank goodness!), but people still like to talk to people they relate to, and there's still plenty to being queer and/or trans that is stressful. So I am here to listen and help any way I can!
