About My Clients

I treat clients from a wide variety of backgrounds and identities, but I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ adolescents and adults, and treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders. I am hearing, am proficient in American Sign Language (ASL) and am experienced with Deaf culture.

My Background and Approach

My practice focuses on helping my clients identify and live according to their values. I meet my clients where they are at with empathy and acceptance, and together we explore their feelings, thoughts, strengths, and needs. I tailor my sessions to meet the needs of each client, and I am also a certified Therapeutic Game Master who enjoys utilizing role play and games in therapy with adolescents and adults to practice skills for decision making, frustration tolerance, and managing conflict.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Finding a therapist who is comfortable and experienced with your identity is important. I practice using a queer and trans-affirming, anti-racist, anti-ableist, trauma-informed lens. I believe in making therapy a safe and effective space for everyone. I value establishing a comfortable, nonjudgmental, and meaningful therapeutic relationship. I wear a mask at all in-person appointments and encourage my clients to wear one, as well.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
