Please note that I am not currently accepting new clients for individual counseling.
Are you ready to take the next step toward healing?
Are you looking for a place where you can bring all the parts of you without fear of judgement? Are you ready to have the complexity of your identities embraced and not rejected? We all deserve to feel the warm welcome of another as we share our truths, even if those truths feel incomplete, still unfolding, or outside of others' expectations.
Unfortunately, some of us have had experiences that didn't convey a sense of welcome and safety to the most tender places within us. Those experiences of rejection, criticism, and exclusion don't only damage our relationships with others; they can disconnect us from ourselves. The good news is that healing is possible, and it begins with reconnecting with the truth of your own goodness. You deserve to be seen, heard, and welcomed no matter what you bring to the table. My hope is that every client who enters my office feels welcome, safe, and heard.
As a therapist, I dig deep to find places of connection with my clients. Sometimes that happens effortlessly, and sometimes it takes a little more digging. I consider myself a family therapist, even when I’m only working with one person. I love having whole families in the room for therapy, but it’s rare when that happens. Even when my clients come alone to therapy, they are still usually a part of (and a product of) a family system. Considering how that family system functions (or doesn’t) can be extremely valuable healing work.
My clinical work focuses on helping queer and trans folks of all ages navigate relationships and heal from trauma. I love counseling clients of all ages who are ready to feel better but aren’t sure where to start. Many of my clients have been white-knuckling their way through life and are ready to start feeling “normal.” I guide these clients to identify areas of discomfort and shift their focus toward tangible solutions that help them feel better ASAP. Sometimes that means addressing trauma symptoms that were numbed or avoided by using drugs and alcohol. Often counseling involves looking into relationships and noticing what’s working and what needs to be changed. Whatever the issues – gender identity, sexuality, trauma, or relationships – I am thrilled when I can connect with someone who thinks they’ve run out of options and direct them toward an undiscovered path.
I’ve been lucky to be mentored by amazing clinical therapists who have taught me about new and effective ways to heal trauma, help partners reconnect, and bring families closer together.
