About My Clients

If you are feeling stressed and anxious, have tried to change things in your life but it is not working, or want things to change but are not sure where to start, you are in the right place! I bring humor and warmth to therapy to help you feel comfortable and heal. I focus on understanding your struggles, your relationships, what motivates you, what keeps you stuck, and help you target areas for growth.

My Background and Approach

I use an eclectic model of therapy, using techniques and tools from a variety of different models based on your specific needs. I offer a warm and validating atmosphere where you can be your truest and most authentic self. We'll collaborate to find the deepest roots and causes of your issues - using your present self to heal old wounds while navigating a path forward.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an unabashedly queer therapist and nerd who loves the human mind and helping people. I believe in completely deconstructing everything I have ever learned and using it to construct a better self - breaking down implicit beliefs about race, ethnicity, tradition, relationships, gender, culture, sexuality, and even thoughts themselves.
