About My Clients

Is fear running your life? Do you hide the real you from your family and friends? Discover the courage to be who you truly are! Many people dealing with anxiety, depression, gender and sexuality issues feel as if they are missing out on life and are afraid to reach out for help. Are you tired of hiding but yet still feel stuck to move forward due to lack of support or fear of judgement? I’m here to help you learn to live that person in the mirror despite others judgement.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in helping others, just like you, learn how to love their true selves. I can teach you to quiet the inner critic AND how to ESCAPE the thoughts whispering, “other people’s judgement matters”. Many of my clients feel overwhelmed, crippled by perfectionism, or just generally unsettled. For the last 10 years I have been working to help others focus on finding relief and how to stop the negative thoughts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone benefits from therapy. I believe that people are going through enough personally that they don’t need to be judged by others and by learning to deal with our own Issues helps us become empathetic and willing to help others. I work with transgender and non-binary clients as well as clients that are feeling overwhelmed and anxious about work, school, home or friends. I’ve also stood on what felt like the edge of a steep cliff, feeling as if I’m going to fall, and yet, found a way to hold on.
