My Approach to Helping
I offer a grounded, nonjudgmental, and personalized approach to helping adolescents and adults cope with sudden major life transitions, chronic stressors, the effects of trauma, and more severe mental health symptoms. Much of my work has centered around the LGBTQ+ community, including nonbinary teens and adults, HIV-affected people, and those preparing for gender-affirming medical care. I also enjoy helping parents who struggle to support their queer or questioning teen, either individually or as an adjunct to their teen’s care.
In our work together, we will address your current stressors as well as the more entrenched, unconscious patterns that are causing you to feel unnecessary pain. Building new coping skills and addressing the deeper and more historical roots of symptoms are each important steps towards healing, and I am here to support you through the whole process.
