About My Clients

My hope is that through therapy, you can come home to yourself, live more fully alive, and experience deep and transformational healing. Life can quickly become overwhelming, dysregulating, and agonizing in the aftermath of a traumatic event or after years of experiencing complex and compounding life stressors. I want you to know you’re not alone and I’m here to offer you a safe space to experience relief and healing.

My Background and Approach

Individual therapy is $130, couples therapy is $140, and group therapy is $45. My love for therapy brought me into this field and it is such an honor to do the work I do. In our sessions together, I desire to create a safe space where you are heard, fully seen, and accepted just as you are. As a Certified Trauma Professional, I approach therapy through a trauma-informed lens and take a collaborative and client-centered approach to treatment. I am certified in Brainspotting and also offer EMDR treatment (I am currently in the training process). These are powerful modalities to help my clients heal from trauma and regulate their nervous systems. I desire to go beyond mere symptom management and will help you explore the roots of your concerns so you can heal on a deeper level. I do not cookie-cutter my work with clients and together we will collaborate on a treatment plan that best aligns with your therapeutic goals and needs. I am a Poly/ENM/CNM, BDSM, & kink-affirming therapist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist, I validate and support my clients on topics related to sexuality, gender identity, gender expression, and more. I am a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself and I understand how important it is to find a therapist who welcomes and accepts you just as you are. I hope to create a safe space where you can live more fully, more authentically, and more freely yourself, and you can truly come home to the wonderful you. Therapy can help you unpack, navigate, and work through challenging situations you have gone through. Common topics that I help my LGBTQIA+ clients with in therapy include processing past trauma, exploring their gender identity, sharing their identity with friends and family, working through any internalized transphobia or homophobia, increasing self-esteem, increasing pride, and reducing anxiety and depression. You deserve to live your life unbound and free. Please reach out if you'd like to connect over a free 15-minute consultation.
