About My Clients

*I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME AND I DO NOT HAVE A WAITLIST* Are you a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community who has had difficulty finding an affirming therapist in the past? Or, are you simply struggling with anxiety, depression, or past trauma? As a member of the community who has dealt with some of these issues myself, I can relate to what you may be feeling, and I'm here to help.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed master social worker (LMSW) who is under supervision for clinical licensure. I chose to pursue a social work degree due to the profession's commitment to advocating for the rights of marginalized and oppressed communities. I approach all client issues with an intersectional, feminist, queer-affirming, and anti-racist lens. I also favor a strengths-based, client-led, and person-centered approach. Together, we will explore a variety of different treatment modalities to find the best fit for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I wholeheartedly support BIPOC rights, the LGBTQ2S+ community, sex workers, abortion rights, and body neutrality. I also believe that mental health should be taken just as seriously as physical health. I know I am not perfect and that there will always be more to learn regarding these issues, so I make a point to listen to others and actively educate myself. Here are some fun facts about myself: I love animation/cartoons (bonus points if they're gay), I like playing fantasy RPG video games, I like listening to k-pop (ask me about my favorite group!), and I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan.
