Hi there! I am trans-masculine and a Licensed Professional Counselor. My passion is helping all ages of people to heal and improve life.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Fort Collins, CO
I use my lived and clinical experience to support others in their gender exploration and journey. If you or someone you know has been questioning gender, transitioning, coming out or facing heteronormativity, I am here to help. I began my clinical training at the former Gender Identity Center and have continued to learn and support others through my career. Wherever you are at on your gender journey to authenticity and beyond, I would be honored to support you or help you support another.
Stress is a part of life. Sometimes we don't deal with it in healthy ways and we end up suffering. We use things like substances, media, and sex to feel better but it doesn't help and can make things worse. We can feel anxious, depressed, isolated and hopeless. If you've been struggling with your stress and you're ready to make positive changes I am here to help. We can start with coping skills, perhaps address addiction, heal trauma and you can master your stress and have a better life.
In addition to lived experience, I have completed a Masters level Clinical Internship at the Gender Identity Center in 2018. Since then I have been providing gender affirming mental health care in a variety of settings such as inpatient mental health for teens and adults as well as clinics that provide play therapy to children. Additionally, I provide education for behavioral health providers to bring cultural relevance into provider practice and to create affirming and inclusive environments.
