About My Clients

Are you worried if a new therapist will understand what it’s like living a life that doesn’t fit outdated expectations? I work with people who need support navigating a path that is not the well-traveled trail of societal norms. People who are LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse, chronically ill/disabled, or ethically non-monogamous often struggle to find someone who understands their lives. You deserve a therapist that already understands so the focus can stay where it belongs; on you and your journey.

My Background and Approach

I see myself as a trail guide who can help you hike the trail ahead. I’m here to help you figure out how to ditch things you have been carrying that you don’t need (hello, emotional baggage) and load what must be carried into your pack in a way that makes it feel lighter. I arm you with tools and skills so you learn how to navigate on your own and manage any difficulties you encounter. After all, a compass is just a disk with a spinning arm until a person knows how to use it. When used properly, though, it will show a traveler true north. I guide you along this part of your trail with the belief and knowledge that the power to create the changes you want in life is in the palm of your hand; a spinning compass that you just need help reading before you are on your way up the path ahead. Are you ready to start your journey? Reach out for your free 15-minute consult at (916) 905-7012 or at [email protected]. I look forward to seeing how I can support you along your trail
