My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with emotions, career, relationships, or chronic pain, but not sure how to move forward? Have you had difficulty connecting with other therapists? Life events can be unexpected, overwhelming, and traumatic. You deserve space to process what brings you to therapy with a professional who can validate your experiences and commit to working with you, at your pace, to develop solutions. I work from a culturally-aware, trauma-informed perspective to ensure that you feel seen and heard, and offer Art Therapy. Non-judgmental by nature, I collaborate with clients by building on strengths to overcome challenges.
With therapy, trauma can be integrated into the past where it occurred, and I can help you learn how to feel safe and grounded in the present. I can also assist with learning self-advocacy in the medical world, brainstorm accommodations, and develop coping for when chronic pain or disability triggers feelings of hopelessness, depression, or anxiety.
As a queer-identified and sex positive (kink & poly affirming) therapist, I also offer a deep understanding of LGBTQ+ concerns. I value working with diverse clientele and welcome people to therapy who struggle with a range of issues. Therapy is an investment in yourself. My ultimate goal is to help you become the best version of yourself, as you envision it.
