I bring more than 8 years of clinical experience and expertise working with queer folks, adolescents, couples, and families. I specialize in the treatment of adolescents and young adults who are struggling to cope with anxiety, mood, trauma, sexual issues, and relationship issues. I also have experience in working with the queer community on an array of issues and concerns. The focus of my experience is with LGBTQIA+ people, largely transgender, gender-expansive, queer, and questioning folks, and allies.
I’m a down-to-earth, holistic therapist who will “keep it real” while supporting your healing journey; and, strive to protect a safe place for you to be open with no judgement. I support a sex-positive and trauma-informed approach to therapy. I am gender-affirming, kink, and poly-affirming. I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community.
I utilize Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy (BSFT) modalities to assist clients in gaining insight and new coping skills, as well as enhancing confidence and self-esteem. My approach is future-focused and goal-directed; and I love to work in collaboration with clients to solve the problems that bring them to therapy.
