About My Clients

I work mostly with LGBTQ adolescents and adults that experience trauma, anxiety, and depression. However, I specialize in a variety of mental health struggles as seen below that often intersect with trauma such as depression, ADHD, identity, stress, and self-esteem issues.

My Background and Approach

I received my Bachelor's and Master's in Social Work from Florida State University. I work full-time as a therapist and have experience working in community mental health, private practice, school social work, and residential treatment. As a mixed queer woman and LGBTQ affirming therapist, I see every day how environments/systems, whether that be at home, work, or in the community, can affect our mental health and our ability to heal and feel safe. That is why social justice and counseling go hand in hand when finding liberation. At Liberation Counseling, you can access quality teletherapy and mental health and social justice resources. I provide a holistic trauma-informed client-centered perspective using play, art, dialectical behavioral, somatic experiencing, and cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approaches. These approaches allow individuals to explore their identity and emotions while learning coping skills in a safe space.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an active member of the LGBTQ, mixed-race community, and social justice advocate, I am a believer in looking at problems holistically and understanding how systems and environments can affect our well-being. I operate from an anti-capitalist, anti-oppressive, decolonization and liberation framework. This framework allows us to work against ero-centric models of "care" that have repeatedly pathologized and weaponized pain and trauma that are built within our systems and environments. Check out my blog and podcast to learn more about social justice, mental health, & finding liberation.
