About My Clients

I specialize in providing individual therapy to adults ages 18+ struggling with: depression, anxiety, body image/body dysmorphia, work-related stress, existential life stress, lack of fulfillment, difficult life transitions, family and/or partner relationship conflicts, sexual and/or gender identity, coming out, experiencing gender dysphoria, and complex trauma.

My Background and Approach

I strongly believe that everyone has the potential to heal from wounds that exist due to life challenges. I have made it my mission to be a facilitator in the process of healing from within through the gift of therapy. I will guide you through alternative ways of thinking and behaving, and to be more present in the moment. I can introduce techniques for relaxation that allow anxieties to melt away and will listen and be nonjudgmental in the process of hearing your voice. I will help navigate your mental system by understanding and finding clarity with the many parts that exist within you. I will do all of this and still maintain that you are the "expert" in the room with your unique narrative.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal experience with finding visibility in my queer identity has stemmed from the safe and secure relationships I have developed over the course of my life as well as the relationships I've developed with my inner authentic self. The relationship with my own gender continues to be an evolving journey for me. My experience to find transcendence in my identity has led me to open a practice that focuses on creating a space for other queer folx to find safety and security in their relationships and life journey.
