About My Clients

Have you experienced trauma? Are you struggling with intrusive thoughts, memories, depression, anxiety, and substance use? Do you find it hard to control your emotions and do your relationships often feel strained and unfulfilling? Perhaps you're plagued by feelings of shame, guilt, and low self-esteem, and you find it challenging to trust yourself and others. Do you find yourself self-medicating to cope with emotional pain and distress?

My Approach to Helping

My own battles with addiction, trauma, and mental health have shaped me into a deeply empathetic therapist. I provide real-world insights and coping strategies by blending my personal journey with my clinical training. I blend holistic and hands-on strategies with a clear focus on your goals. During our discussions, I contribute fresh perspectives and ask meaningful questions. At the end of each session, you'll receive specific exercises to extend your growth outside our meetings. While I offer you support, I also challenge you to help enhance your personal development. I've gained insights into the LGBTQ+ community's unique challenges and strengths through my work. I've also helped polyamorous clients improve communication and self-identity. My experience has enhanced my understanding of diverse LGBTQ+ identities and relationship models. I'm committed to delivering affirming and inclusive therapy that respects each client's individual journey.

My Values as a Therapist

As a trauma and addiction specialist, my personal beliefs are rooted in compassion, empowerment, and cultural humility. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the power of individuals to heal and grow through trauma and addiction. I value diversity and inclusivity and strive to create a safe and welcoming space for all individuals, regardless of their background or experiences. I am committed to supporting my clients on their journey toward recovery and believe that collaboration, empathy, and mutual trust are essential in the therapeutic process.
