About My Clients
*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!* I work with my peers in the LGBTQ+ community, those affected by trauma & PTSD, & college-aged adults in a life transition. Do you struggle in your relationships? Has trauma significantly impacted your ability to lead a healthy & fulfilling life? Are you navigating being queer or the coming out process? I help you uncover patterns, develop healthy coping skills, & learn to experience difficult emotions. I've dedicated my career to serving those affected by trauma & PTSD.
My Background and Approach
My client's regularly give feedback that they feel safe, understood, have learned to let go of shame, & have developed tools to lead fulfilling lives after trauma. My practice incorporates LGBTQ+ Affirming therapy, attachment theory, culturally sensitive practices, & is trauma-informed. My goal is to help you uncover patterns, develop healthy coping skills to use during times of stress, & lead a more fulfilling, values-based life. My approach is warm, non-judgemental, and affirming. I encourage you to set actionable goals. I'm incredibly passionate about working with young college-aged adults and young professionals! I've dedicated my career to treating trauma and serving the queer community. I hold my trauma counseling certificate from UW-Milwaukee. I'm highly trained in & have attended many specialized trainings to treat Trauma and PTSD. For 6 years I trained students & peers to use prolonged exposure therapy. I treat anxiety disorders, depression, and relationship dynamics.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. I believe that at their core people are kind, creative, & intelligent. I routinely encourage body positivity, health at every size, & love working with clients who are new to therapy. Therapy teaches us how to experience our emotions in healthy ways, uncover patterns, learn that we aren't alone, & gives us space to express ourselves without judgement. My goal is to help you uncover a life that's based on your values, affirming, & free from the harmful effects of trauma. I believe that no trauma is too big to recover from. I've walked 100s of clients side by side through their process and have witnessed true growth, relief, & healing. My clients have experienced emotional, sexual, & physical abuse, neglect, death/grief/suicide, are vets or 1st responders, & unmet needs from caregivers. I enjoy cooking new vegan recipes with my spouse, being active, & taking care of our spirited dog. If you're interested in learning more, contact me today!
