I am actively licensed to practice in Ohio and Colorado. I have over 19 years of professional work experience. I specialize in providing therapy services for neurodivergent individuals and their families. Specifically, I focus on supporting those who have experienced differences related to autism, ADHD, OCD, trauma, LGBTQIA+, trans and gender diverse persons, and diverse relationship structures through affirming therapy approaches. As someone with lived experience in several of these groups, I am passionate about creating spaces to support and empower others within these communities. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
