My passion is in supporting adults experiencing LGBTQ+ or other minority oppressions, addiction, life transitions, and relationship issues.
Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Arvada, CO
Life's challenges can feel dark, heavy, or even impossible to deal with. Most people who start Addiction Counseling feel stuck repeating the same painful patterns. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you feel like you want to escape your life or you have caused harm to the important people in your life. You might feel embarrassed to open up about what you’re really going through, even to family and friends. Therapy provides a non-judgemental space for you to talk freely about what’s bothering you.
When there is a lot going on in life, many people find it hard to cope with the added oppression felt in a world that is not fully accepting of their identities. You don't have to fear being your full, honest, authentic self. As a queer clinician, I know how important it is to create an accepting, identity affirming space where clients can bring their whole self and no longer have to hide parts of themselves. There is nothing wrong with you, the problem is in how the world mistreats you.
