About My Clients

You are experiencing feelings of worthlessness and questions about if you deserve love and genuine connection, wondering if anyone would love you if they truly “knew” you. Your experiences of trauma in childhood and/or adulthood are starting to catch up with you. You are struggling in relationships, noticing difficulties with expressing yourself or being understood. You find yourself drawn to partners and friendships that push the same buttons your parents and childhood relationships did.

My Background and Approach

As a trauma-informed, Licensed Psychologist, I have the skills and experience to help you understand how you operate in relationships and how your cumulative life experiences have shaped how you see and interact with the world. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ folks, trauma, and religious/spiritual concerns/trauma. I can work with you to connect with and understand yourself in a way you have not been able to on your own or with other therapists. Together we can help you connect with yourself, heal, and cultivate meaningful and lasting relationships. We all feel misunderstood and lost at times. You deserve to be fully known and have someone walk alongside you in this part of your journey. You do not need to be alone in your pain anymore. I would be honored to be a part of your journey. Please reach out to schedule a free phone consultation to see if we could be a good fit.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you hold inside of you what you need to lead the fulfilling life you deserve, and I can help you find it. I believe marginalized people matter, women matter, Queer folks matter, Black Lives Matter, and that their lives, issues, and experiences deserve to be upheld and tended to. I offer a safe space for all people and bodies, including BIPOC and Queer folks, and those who are Trans and Nonbinary. Please call for a phone consultation to see if we could be a good fit.
