About My Clients

I particularly enjoy working with the LGBTQIA+, alternative relationship (polyamory, ethical non-monogamy, etc.) and kink/fetish communities (gender, sexual, and relationship diversities). I specialize in working with multiple issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, spiritual and religious trauma, PTSD, grief, and perfectionism. I offer a unique perspective because of both my personal experiences in these areas and my training.

My Background and Approach

My therapy style has been described as informal, direct, creative, and humorous. I challenge my clients to consider what “could be” and not “what is,” so they can understand and embrace their true selves. My theoretical orientation is Gestalt, which emphasizes the whole person we are today is influenced by multiple parts of our history. I help clients make connections between current behaviors, thoughts, and emotions and past experiences. How can I help you?

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone deserves mental health assistance and I offer sliding scale to allow lower income clients to take advantage of mental health services. I believe trans women are women and trans men are men and should be treated as such. I believe that different romantic relationship styles can be healthy. I believe that Black Lives Matter and use my privilege to advance the cause of all BIPOC. I believe that most organized religions cause more harm than good to individuals that results in spiritual trauma. I believe in universal healthcare, elimination of student loan debt, and the distribution of wealth to create more economic equality. I believe that there is a mental health crisis in the United States exacerbated by racism, prejudice, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, low socioeconomic status, unethical medical practices, and many other systemic issues.
