About My Clients
The more I am in this field the more I realize that I am very passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ community, which I also belong to. I particularly enjoy working with trans folx and helping them navigate the process of coming out or just the day to day stress of the society we currently live in. I love working with people who are new to therapy just as much as working with those who are familiar with it.
My Background and Approach
In our sessions I will use various treatment methods that are focused on what works for you, but my focus is generally using CBT informed treatment. I am also EMDR trained and love using this modality with people who have experienced trauma as I have had the joy of witnessing people heal and begin to experience an improved quality of life as a result. Throughout my career I have gained a lot of experience working with adolescents and adults with a wide range of mental health struggles and substance use disorders. I have also worked in community mental health and medical hospital settings.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I absolutely support BLM, as I believe that racial inequality is a very real issue in this country. I am a staunch supporter of reproductive rights as I believe everyone with a uterus should be able to make decisions about their own bodies. I also feel strongly that trans rights are human rights.
