About My Clients

I specialize in serving individuals who feel disconnected from themselves and others due to traumatic experiences or mental health issues like anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship struggles. My ideal clients are seeking a judgment-free space to explore their inner world and process emotions that feel overwhelming or unclear. My expertise is creating a calm, empathic environment for you to develop self-awareness, find relief, and embrace all of your authentic self.

My Background and Approach

With over 15 years of experience working in mental health, I bring deep expertise in humanistic, client-centered therapy to help clients connect with their inner wisdom and strength. Throughout my doctoral training in Clinical Psychology I specialized in trauma, anxiety, LGBTQ+ affirmative care, and serious mental illness. Using empathy and compassion, I create a judgment-free space for you to process unclear or overwhelming emotions and experiences. My approach helps you embrace all aspects of your self. I stay attuned to your unique needs, integrating techniques and resources tailored to you. My training enables me to hold space for you to transform extremely challenging experiences into opportunities for post-traumatic growth. Many clients feel heard and understood for the first time. I consider it an honor to bear witness as you reconnect with your natural capacity for healing. My approach instills resilience, self-awareness, positive self-regard and tools to thrive.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

As a member of the queer community, I understand that entering therapy can be incredibly daunting, especially if you've had negative encounters in the past with healthcare providers and therapists that left you feeling misunderstood, dismissed, or even hurt. Despite their intentions, some therapists cause pain rather than promote healing. You may have received unhelpful guidance, excessive advice, or a lack of genuine listening. That kind of therapy experience is all too common for people from marginalized groups who have endured trauma. Drawing from both my personal journey and my professional experiences as a therapist, I want you to know that your fears and reservations are valid. Profound healing and transformation often emerges from the sense of being truly seen and deeply understood by others. I believe that everyone is capable of healing and growth when they are accepted for who they truly are.
