Licensed Professional Counselor in Denver, CO

About My Clients

*Serving clients in CA, CO, TX, & WA* Are you unhappy about where you are in life & fear others won't accept you for who you are? Do you feel as though you have to hide facets of yourself? If so, you may find it helpful to connect with someone who has been through these feelings & understands the challenge of managing feelings of anxiety, stress, insecurity, & depression. I understand the struggles with exploring one's identity and finding the confidence to love & value your unique self.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ concerns, career exploration, career development concerns, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, perfectionism, social skills, procrastination/motivation and ADHD. I utilize an eclectic approach incorporating elements of evidenced-based therapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as Existential, Feminist, and Queer-Affirming Therapy tailored to each client’s unique needs. I am a Certified Queer & Trans Affirming professional and a licensed counselor in California, Colorado, Texas, and Washington. As a queer therapist, I am familiar with the nuances of queer culture and identity, and can provide insight and support for clients who are navigating these issues. My approach focuses on exploring what makes each individual thrive, providing empathy and understanding, free from judgment and societal expectations.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am committed to providing affirming counseling grounded in the belief that every individual should be accepted and valued for who they are. By creating a non-judgmental and supportive environment where clients can freely explore their thoughts and feelings, without fear of rejection or discrimination, I approach therapy in a way that acknowledges and respects the unique experiences and challenges faced by clients from marginalized communities. I strive to do my part in working toward a world where all individuals have equal access to counseling, regardless of their physical abilities, financial resources, or geographic location. I offer services online and via phone across multiple states, provide flexible daytime and evening scheduling options, and offer a limited number of income-based sliding scale slots to clients who may not be able to afford traditional therapy.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
