About My Clients
I work with adults who experienced complex trauma growing up, whether in your family of origin or religious trauma in your church. You may have had toxic, narcissistic, or emotionally immature parents, or childhood emotional neglect. Atheists, agnostics, & all religious beliefs and faith transitions welcome. If you have experienced chronic invalidation, criticism, or lack of acceptance, processing your trauma can help you find more inner calm, so you can live a more joyful, authentic life.
My Background and Approach
My therapy is relational and based on dialogue. I strive to understand people holistically, rather than dwell at the surface level. My goal is to create a human and empathetic space where you are free to be fully yourself. Trans, LGBTQ, Queer affirming. I practice from a humanistic, gestalt, and feminist theory approach. You are ready to give yourself the care you’ve been needing. Facing your past and working through it is a courageous choice to care for yourself and find deeper peace and joy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe fundamentally in human rights and social justice; I strive to be self-reflective as a counselor and to be LGBTQ+ affirmative, and trauma informed. All bodies are good bodies, and all humans deserve rest, a living wage, and a safe place to live. I believe that religion and spirituality can do harm, and they can also be powerful forces for good, depending on the person and situation. I believe that we need each other and no one should be left to struggle alone. I believe that humanity at its best is beautiful, and a more just and peaceful world is possible.
