I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community, including both gender identity and sexual identity. I also specialize in concerns related to trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. I am a LGBTQIA+, relationship, and culturally affirming clinician, including various relationship types (i.e. CNM, open relationships, poly relationships).
When working with people from minoritized groups, I seek to explore how minority stress, oppression, and collective trauma contribute to symptoms of mental illness. Beyond the therapy room, we seek to advocate on behalf of others to promote healthier and safer systems for all, as well as reduce barriers to care.
I enjoy creating a highly affirming and validating environment--a safe space where we are able to balance logical problem-solving, humor and positivity, and deep emotional processing. Let's get started!
