My Approach to Helping

You are taking an important step towards shaping your life. I provide a safe and confidential environment in which you can take an active role in deepening your self-awareness and self-understanding. My approach to working with you is infused with creativity, humor, and non-judgement. Our therapeutic relationship will be focused on you and your goals. Everyone faces difficult issues and choices throughout their lifetime. It is my hope that our alliance will empower you to navigate present and future life challenges. You may find that by working together, you are able to achieve new insights, learn new skills, and achieve a sense of wellness, balance, and greater self-efficacy.

More Info About My Practice

I work with adults and adolescents on a variety of issues including (but not limited to) Anxiety, Mood Dysregulation, Gender Identity, Race, Ethnicity & Culture, Relationships and Sex. My practice is: LGBTQIA affirming, poly, open relationship & kink friendly, multicultural/racial/ethnic informed.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

There are specific issues that are associated with being a person of color, LGBTQ identified, or in an open/poly relationship structure. Being a member of all three of these communities and knowing first-hand the struggles of holding each of those identities offers me personal insight to help navigate the struggles that clients from one or all of those communities face.
