I am a Licensed Professional Counselor focused on trauma healing, identity exploration, navigating oppression, relationship growth, and deep processing for self understanding and flourishing. I have specialized training in trauma-aware therapy and LGBTQ+ -affirmative care.
I believe the therapy relationship is the heart of the therapy process. Creating safety together provides the foundation for you to create your own safety and to evaluate safety in your relationships with others. I view therapy as a collaborative process of equals. You are the expert in yourself, and even though you may not have the answers you want yet, you are the only one who can decide what those answers will be. My commitment to you: I will hold space for you without expectations of who you “should” be or what is “healthy” to do. I am authentically myself with you, not to show you how to live, but to provide an experiential model for creating safety so you can make space for yourself.
