About My Clients

If you are looking for a queer, trauma informed therapist, you have made it to the right place! You are a self aware, typically emotionally independent person who is reaching out to talk to someone who can understand the hardships you’ve experienced as a queer person. Your hardships have contributed to your patterns of chronic critical self talk, perfectionism, people pleasing, overanalyzing, or over-using distraction in your life.

My Background and Approach

You are doing your absolute best to make it through your experience, and it may look to others like you’re fine. But you’ve been mostly keeping it to yourself that you are still in pain. You may be labeling yourself as broken, over-sensitive, or having self critical moments where you ask yourself “what is wrong with me?”. You’re trying so hard but having trouble cutting yourself any slack, and just don’t want to live like this anymore. You’re ready to dive into deeper self exploration, and looking for support along the way. With the guidance of a therapist, you would like to explore the specifics of your story to get to the root as to why your mental health is the way it is, and figure out what you uniquely need in order to move out of old distressing patterns and into new paths of wellbeing. With this work, you’ll become your own greatest ally, start to better advocate for your needs, and piece by piece build a life that is more affirmative to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Almost my entire practice is dedicated to helping members of the LGBTQIA+ community find self compassion, understand the roots of their mental health experiences, and finally move towards empowerment. If you are curious if I would be a good match for you too, feel free to head to my website to learn more about my practice. If you like what you see, we can schedule a free 15 minute phone call to chat about what you need. I’m looking forward to meeting you and starting this journey together!
