About My Clients
Do you struggle with your sexual or gender identity? Do you find yourself searching for things outside yourself to fill the void? Sometimes this is food, alcohol, other addictive behaviors...Do you feel anxious or depressed for seemingly no reason? Do you feel like you are working hard just to survive and want so much to thrive yet aren't sure how to do that? With a little help, you can live your life free of past trauma, free of unhealthy habits while embracing your true self completely!
My Background and Approach
I view mental health from a multi faceted lens and have multi-dimensional tools to help you be your best self. First, it is important to recognize that your physical health impacts your mental health - your body does keep the score & carries trauma & experiences with you. Second, your mind can be your friend or enemy and it is imperative to develop the tools to befriend your mind in order to heal. By doing so, you can be more fully present and release old ways of being. Third, it takes courage to fully embrace all of yourself and so radically accepting who you are with all your individual nuances is imperative to being fully alive. You are unique in the most wonderful way and I love to help you honor who you are. Fourth, learning to offer yourself the love, nurturing and caring that you perhaps did not get helps you embrace your needs. By these and other ways, you can shed old ways of being and stand tall in who you are, opening yourself up to the most vibrant life possible!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in the strength of the human spirit, and know that anyone, regardless of past experiences can accomplish what they set their mind on. No matter what challenges you face or have faced, I am here to help you set yourself free from past & current limitations. With your persistence, grit, humor & willingness to do something different, you can live a life you deem worth living. I am an active member of the LGBTQ+ community in that I identify as queer and I actively work to support LGBTQ+ youth & adults. I also have a passion for helping people who struggle with addiction - this is close to my heart based on my own past family and personal struggles - thankfully, through my own work and persistence, the cycle of addiction has been broken. Today's world can be challenging and so I offer an existential discussion when appropriate. Just know, I am ready to roll up my sleeves and dig through the dirt with you, to help you reveal yourself as the unique & wonderful human you are!
