About My Clients

Are you experiencing challenges in your relationships with others, or wanting to have more intimacy and connection in your life? Do you find that past experiences are keeping you from living the life you want to live? Have you experienced confusion or bullying related to your gender or sexuality? I strive for an environment of openness, cultural humility, curiosity, and safety.

My Background and Approach

I provide counseling and psychotherapy for individual adults. My work is built on a foundation of multicultural counseling and attachment-informed Existential therapy. I also offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have specific training and experience working with transgender and gender queer/non-binary identities.

I believe in your inherent worth and your innate ability to move toward health and wholeness. I see my role as a partner in uncovering the barriers to that growth. My therapeutic approach is holistic and relationship-oriented.
