About My Clients

The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going.

My Background and Approach

I graduated with my MS in Counseling Psychology, after serving as a manager of my university's low-cost mental health clinic. I have experience with teens, adults, and older adults (55+), chronic illness, mood disorders, grief, and daily stress. I am LGBT+ affirmative, sex positive, and familiar with most major religious traditions and accepting of religious practices and beliefs. I work at your pace in a safe, nonjudgmental environment. I am an intersectional feminist, and I am interested in the confluence of religion and gender roles. I am also nerd friendly!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I became a therapist due to my own struggles with finding affordable, competent mental health care when I was in my late teens. I do offer lower-cost counseling to a good portion of my clients, and I offer flexible appointment times to work around your schedule and childcare. I share my own mental health journey with others, both publicly and privately, in an attempt to reduce the stigma surrounding both mental illness and seeking therapy services. I am a dog and cat lover, play video games, and Netflix binge with the best. I am a member of the LGBT community and love serving others in that community. I read a lot-- and not just therapy books. In undergrad, I minored in Women's and Gender studies and focused on feminist philosophy.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
