I’ve been serving clients as a professional counselor for 11 years, working with a variety of settings and concerns. I work from a person-centered approach, using humor, mindfulness, and acceptance as tools of healing and transformation. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, Health At Every Size (HAES)-informed, and social justice aligned. I believe in the need to broaden our view from seeing individual struggles as collective, moving towards solutions that foster interdependence and equity. I approach counseling as a co-creation, and I consider my role to be an insightful companion through the process. I trust the inherent wholeness of each individual. I have specific training in Expressive Arts Therapy, which utilizes art-making as therapeutic. Artistic experience is not required to benefit from this type of counseling, and this is always optional.
