About My Clients

I work with children, adolescents, and adults all across the gender spectrum and in the LGBTQIA+ community. I provide education to families, discuss concerns related to gender and sexuality, and review the co-occuring mental health issues that sometimes accompany different gender identities. For trans individuals, the world of puberty blockers, hormone replacement therapy, gender-affirming surgeries, and changing name markers can be overwhelming—I'm here to help with that, too.

My Background and Approach

My style is warm, strengths-based, and empowering. You will not be laying on a sofa (unless you really want to!). We are equals in our relationship: I won’t pretend to be an expert on your life, but I am a partner in your growth. Sessions will feel like conversations with a friend. Sometimes we’ll cry but I'll make that we laugh, too.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I try to honor the experiences of traditionally-marginalized communities, including BI/POC and all folx on the gender spectrum, in our conversations together. Non-oppressive therapists work constantly to be aware of our own privilege and recognize the ways in which privilege, stereotypes, and racism affect mental health.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
