About My Clients

I work with adults exploring / affirming / sharing / expanding gender identity and/or sexuality. I specialize in working with grief, religious trauma (esp. evangelical Christianity), relationship issues, anxiety, and depression.

My Background and Approach

While there are all sorts of technical terms that I could use to describe my theoretical orientation - relational, psychodynamic, interpersonal - these words simply mean that I focus on who you are, where you've been, and who you are becoming in relation to yourself and others. I hold a Master's degree in Counseling and a Bachelor's degree in Communications. I advocate for my clients and aim to help them understand that their feelings are real, their needs are important, and that change is possible. The most common forms of therapy I utilize in treatment are based in Psychodynamic, Interpersonal, Multicultural, Queer Theory, Existential and Narrative theory. I abide by all WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) guidelines for treatment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights, am committed to internal and external anti-racist work, and am a safe space for those who have been oppressed by religious institutions. You are invited to come as you are. I believe that quality therapy acknowledges the unique intersections of race and mental health. Racism and oppression are powerful realities - so therapists should feel comfortable addressing these topics.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
