My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Master of Social Work Clinician who specializes in treating PTSD and anxiety related disorders. I work within an inter-sectional and anti-oppression framework as an LGBTQIA+ Affirming Therapist. I approach counseling with a deep empathy and belief in the power of your strengths and teach self-compassion. The majority of my professional experience has been working with individuals who have experienced domestic violence, sexual trauma and military related trauma. My counseling style is accepting, sincere and validating. I am kink and poly friendly. I have experience treating both children and adults, as well as LGBTQIA+ couples. Please contact me today for a free 10 minute phone consultation. I look forward to helping you Find Your Shine, whatever that may mean for you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I actively support human rights, volunteer for local LGBTQIA+ organizations, and enjoy helping all people feel empowered and more confident. I make it a priority to create a safe, inclusive environment, for people of all walks of life. This includes: body size/shape, gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation. As an affirming professional, I value feedback and transparency from others.
