My Approach to Helping
As a queer identifying therapist, I understand how important it is to have access to knowledgable and affirming care. I am proud to help provide a safe and supportive environment with the appropriate professional training working with gender and sexuality diverse communities. I can also provide mental health assessment and documentation requirements needed for gender confirming medical care from an informed consent model approach. I am laid back, authentic, and direct with how I engage. I will work alongside you from a collaborative space to help you meet your therapy goals.
I offer individual, relationship, and family therapy. My areas of focus include: gender and sexual diversity, non-monogamy, intimate relationships, family therapy, trauma processing, sex and kink positivity, anxiety, depression, student-athlete mental health (I'm an experience competitive athlete myself), and more!
Finding the right therapist for you is a key part of this process because the connection with your therapist is foundational to your healing. I offer a free consult to help with that first step.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Gender-Affirming Therapeutic Services
I welcome all diverse gender identities and expressions at any stage of the journey.
As a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), I take pride in offering therapy services for gender diverse individuals, relationships, families, and for their loved ones of all ages. I support the Informed Consent Model for care and will work as a facilitator in your process. I will work alongside you to help provide mental health assessment and documentation requested or required for any reason, including access to gender confirming medical care. I am willing and excited to work collaboratively with other affirming practitioners to help along your journey.
My personal therapy approach is integrated and evolves to meet the unique needs of each client. I tend to be collaborative, process experiential, client-centered with a systemic lens.
