About My Clients

I am experienced in helping LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent individuals navigate life transitions, chronic illness management, gender/sexual identity concerns, anxiety, perfectionism, self-esteem, disordered eating, body image and complex trauma. If you struggle with worry, guilt/shame, feeling not good enough, being really hard on yourself, feeling like no one understands you, or feeling weighed down by things that have happened in your past, I may be able to help.

My Background and Approach

I integrate compassion-focused, mindfulness and acceptance-based techniques into what I hope feels like a conversation between two human beings. I'm flexible to work with you however it is you need at the time, whether that's coping strategies for daily stressors or processing emotions associated with traumatic memories. I encourage clients take a collaborative role in the therapy process. You're the expert on your life. I will often ask you to consider things from a variety of angles, but at the end of the day it's up to you what you take or leave. I want my clients to feel heard and respected. I hope our work together will result in self-insight and increased self-compassion, allowing you to live a fulfilling life aligned with your values. The story we tell ourselves about ourselves matters so much.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about increasing access to LGBTQIA+ competent and neurodiversity-affirming mental healthcare. I value body diversity and reject weight discrimination in medicine and in society. I understand that the therapy space can feel vulnerable and may be uncomfortable; I will work to earn your trust, get to know you as a person in the context of your life and do what I can to help you feel empowered.
