About My Clients

As a member of the queer community, I have a deep passion for working with clients who are a part of this community and want to explore their sexuality, their relationship to their queer identity, and or overcome feelings of guilt or shame. We can work together to understand how those feelings are impacting your present circumstances and begin to gently and curiously challenge those narratives. I also welcome clients who are experiencing challenges related to substance use.

My Background and Approach

I have worked in a wide range of settings with the LGBTQ+ community. I started by being a peer support on a hotline. I then began working with LGBTQ youth on college campuses. I next moved into the substance use treatment space where I worked with clients to explore ways to manage their substance use and develop new healthier coping mechanisms. Throughout all this work, I recognized common themes.So much of who we are and how we think about ourselves is shaped by our past experiences and the messages we have received about ourselves from the people around us. Together, we’ll explore what brought you into therapy in the first place and start to identify how your past is impacting your present. Often, how we got stuck is how we change - in relationships. Together we can start to identify how exactly you view yourself and how that may be helping or hindering your ability to get to where you want to go. We will gently challenge those narratives with compassion and curiosity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

If you're reading this, it's probably because you're looking for a change. If we didn't need to change, being stuck wouldn't bother us. Change is human. It is needed. AND it can be understood as positive. We are a process of becoming, not a person with a problem. We live in such a fast paced world, with places to go and things to do. We don't really stop to look around us at the people who are standing right next to us. I believe that everyone has a story, including you. I approach my work with genuine excitement and curiosity. I want to know who you are, the things that you believe in, the things that bring you joy, the sadness you're experiencing, and so much more! If any of this has resonated with you or sparked a feeling of excitement or curiosity, I encourage you to reach out by phone or email to set up a free consultation to see if working together feels like the right next step for you.
