Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in San Diego, CA

About My Clients

If you are feeling overwhelmed, disengaged, anxious or depressed, it’s time to reach out for support. I work with all adults and teenagers but I do specialize in working with the LGTBQ+ community and provide gender and sexual identity affirmative care, including partner therapy for queer couples and poly/non-monogomous folks. I will support you in developing coping skills for anxiety and depression and empower you to set healthy boundaries and heal from attachment wounds and trauma.

My Background and Approach

I use different therapy approaches and find a style that best serves each of my clients. I predominately utilize narrative therapy, Gestalt therapy, attachment therapy, Internal Family Systems therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. With any approach, my focus is to help clients examine issues/problems that are present in their life, identify how their lives are being impacted, and find new paths forward that promote growth, health, and happiness. I offer a challenge and support role in that I ask clients to consider new perspectives, alternative considerations, and ask them to push themselves and step outside their comfort zones, but I am always by their side with empathy, compassion, and support. I believe that all of my clients are capable of achieving the growth that they desire.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer therapist, my desire to provide queer affirming therapy stems from the exclusion of queerness in traditional models of mental health and care. I believe that our mental health and framework in which we view our world is significantly shaped by systemic oppression, marginalization, and discrimination. Ignoring the impact of these systems and experiences means that we ignore a huge part of our wellness. I also provide partner therapy for queer relationships, including polyamorous and ethical non-monogamous relationships because many models of "couples" therapy do not account for the unique dynamics of queer love. All types of people and relationships are welcome!
