My Approach to Helping

I am passionate about helping my community and have been working in mental health in my community since 2012. If you are ready to feel more confident in the person that you are, and leave the fear and shame behind, utilizing trauma informed interventions, you can become the version of you that you want to be. By interweaving mindfulness into the work, you will be able to access new levels of understanding of yourself and your ability to deal with any situation.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently seeing clients via telehealth only. I have Gottman Level 2 training as well as training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. My experience in mental health started working for a crisis line, so I am comfortable with talking about suicidal ideation and self harm.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

My favorite part of my work is being a witness to the healing journey of others, and the way that people thrive when they are able to heal and feel comfortable with themselves.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I believe that my role as a therapist is to provide everyone with the same care and respect, no matter their identity. I had a therapist once tell me that my high levels of anxiety were caused by my sexuality. I became a therapist because every person in the LGBTQ+ community deserves care from a person who understands that our struggles are mostly from a lack of societal and family acceptance.
