About Me

Life transitions and struggles offer the opportunity to find greater clarity of purpose, more meaningful relationships, increased confidence, and personal satisfaction. To be human is to feel emotion, both the highs and the lows. We are all connected through not only these experiences, but through the relationships with those around us. Therapy is a unique and personal journey built on mutual trust and respect. My perspective is strengths-based, LGBTQIA-affirmative, and integrative. I work with individuals of all backgrounds, bodies, and beliefs.

My approach is individualized and collaborative. My goal is to provide a co-creative, connected experience that is emotionally safe, affirming, and protective, for you to gain insight and resiliency. We will work together using a respectful, caring and listening approach.
My studies have included training in minorities and domestic violence, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma focus CBT, play therapy, communication and conflict resolution. In addition, I am an experienced clinical supervisor, a certified rehabilitation counselor.
