Description

I offer a compassionate, inclusive, and non-judgmental space whereby we can develop a meaningful connection. I seek to help you foster your own insight and self-compassion in a world that can be harsh, fast, and uncaring. As therapy can be an intimidating process where you may feel vulnerable, it is my primary goal to help you feel comfortable and safe. 

I work with various presenting concerns: depression & anxiety, gender-related concerns, trauma, intimate partner violence, life transitions, identity, grief & loss, relationship issues, sexual abuse, LGBTQ2S+ allied
