About My Clients

When working with a client, I believe that you are the expert of your life, and I am a curious partner helping to guide you as you make decisions that impact your life. Sometimes we need a cheerleader, sometimes we need guidance; I keep a flexible approach so that you get what you need the most out of counseling. I don't provide couples/relationship counseling, but I'm happy to discuss your relationships in individual sessions.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is queer-competent, sex-positive, kink-aware, and poly-affirming. In other words, instead of dancing around issues related to sexuality, I create a safe space for my clients to explore their problems fully without fear of judgment. Prior to starting private practice, I worked in a college counseling center, which afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of mental health concerns, including but not limited to substance use concerns, anxiety disorders, depression, and trauma/PTSD. Need to know more about my credentials? I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC, SC license #7811). My Master's degree is in Clinical Counseling Psychology from The Citadel. My Bachelor's degree is in Psychology from the University of South Carolina (Go Cocks!).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a member of the queer community, I understand how important it is to work with a mental health provider who is not only affirming, but is also actively challenging the cisgender/heteronormative expectations of American society. I believe that we cannot actively heal unless we discuss and understand how systemic barriers may be impacting us.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
