About My Clients

I am passionate about serving the LGBTQIA+ community and come with my own lived experience. I help folks who are struggling with LGBTQIA+ related issues, including both gender identity and sexual identity. I also focus on helping those struggling with infertility, parenting, relationship issues, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. I am enthusiastic and passionate about this work and I truly believe that every person has the power to change their life.

My Background and Approach

I focus on wellness over illness, and I believe that it's important to consider how contextual (socioeconomic, political, cultural) factors play a role in your life and the things you are struggling with. I help clients take back the pen to figuratively (and sometimes literally!) re-write their stories. This often involves exploring intersectional identities, clarifying values, and identifying and amplifying strengths in order to create a life story that is authentic and intentional. As a highly sensitive person, I am no stranger to strong emotions. I want you to feel comfortable bringing every part of yourself into the space. I will laugh with you, cry with you, curse with you--no judgement and no BS, ever. I will be transparent with you every step of the way, collaborate with you to set goals, and explain things to you in a way that actually makes sense. Healing is a messy, painful, beautiful process--and I honor the strength it takes to start.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
