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.

More Info About My Practice

Every therapist has different boundaries with clients. I maintain strict professional boundaries with all clients in order for their therapy to be effective, but also value authenticity. In general, clients who work well with me want a therapist who speaks with them, and not to or at them. I am a mental health expert; you are the expert of your own life. Let's work together to create the change you want to see.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

As a result of years of effectively working with diverse populations, I highly value cultural awareness as a guiding ethical principal in my work as a therapist. Grasping an understanding of my clients different intersections of identity, privileges, and ways in which they may be marginalized, is crucial to understanding how to best help them. As an LGBTQIA affirming and sex positive (kink and poly affirming) therapist, I am passionate about making therapy a nonjudgmental space where all can feel welcomed and cared for, regardless of their race, gender, sexuality, religion, or immigration status. My willingness to admit when I don't know or understand something, and then find guidance on the topic, is critical to maintaining myself as a culturally aware therapist.
