My Ideal Client

As a social worker, I love finding the individual within the noise of the systems we live in. Nothing brings me more happiness than seeing the "aha" moments during sessions that lead to more knowledge, joy and confidence in the lives of my clients. Whether you are experiencing a life transition, increased stress or anxiety, dissatisfaction with relationships or work, or would just like someone that will be on your side while you figure it out, I'm here for you.

My Approach to Helping

I believe that all people hold within them an inherent ability to heal, connect, and thrive. With challenges that arise over the course of a life, that ability may become diminished or more difficult to access. I believe that a therapeutic relationship based on honest and mutual connection, trust and respect can be the catalyst for life-altering healing and change. I strive to offer an empathetic and affirming approach to all of my clients as they express themselves through their many identities, experiences, strengths, and challenges. I see my role as someone that will walk beside you, as a companion, as you find the solutions that work best for you. I value the right dose of empathy, compassion, and humor to help facilitate a safe and comforting environment in which you can engage and find your way to a more joyful and purposeful life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I chose to pursue a career in social work because I knew that through my education and experience working as a professional I would be exposed to people, thoughts, and experiences that were different from what I was familiar with. I have always been deeply passionate about helping others but often felt powerless when faced with the weight of all that needs "fixing" in our world. Through my work as a clinical social worker, I have found ways in which I can be most effective as an agent for social change. I continue to recognize, deconstruct, and acknowledge the ways in which I am privileged in an effort to leverage that privilege for good. I am a vocal and passionate advocate for education, harm-reduction and radical societal change in regards to the most vulnerable members of our society.

Techniques I Use


  • Brainspotting External link

    I am a trained Brainspotting clinician and utilize this modality with many of my current clients to assist in processing traumas, both recent and past, and other emotionally significant events.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    I believe that emotions are the unsung heroes of unlocking the mind and body connection. They provide a roadmap for how to effectively and efficiently address and process any number of issues that may arise in every day life. By helping my clients to first identify and then work with their emotions rather than resist them, I help them to access healing and growth that may have previously been unknown or unaccessible to them.

  • Relational  External link

    As a social worker trained in systems-theory, I have come to believe that it is the quality of our interpersonal relationships that have the greatest impact on our overall mental health and wellbeing. By utilizing relational therapy, I assist my clients in identifying which relationships are most meaningful to them and how to ensure that those relationships are mutually-satisfying and beneficial to all parties involved. This often includes work around communication skills and boundaries.

Issues I Treat


  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I am a queer therapist with over 7 years of experience working clinically with the LGBTQIA+/Queer community including trans-competent and affirming care that includes free assessments and letters for gender-affirming procedures. I am a member of WPATH and GALAP as well as several LGBTQIA+ affirmative organizations in both Utah and Oregon. I am passionate about making my practice a comforting and affirming space in the midst of the massive amount of discrimination being leveraged at this time.

  • Spirituality External link

    I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormonism). I recognize as an adult that this was a fairly unique culture to have experienced and can see the ways it influenced who I am today, for better or worse. I am interested in helping others find their way to happiness and comfort, within The Church or without, while remaining a vocal advocate for change within the organization in regards to racial, gender and LGBTQIA+ policies.

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    Through my own experience as a bone marrow transplant recipient, I learned first-hand the importance of having access to a mental health professional that could guide me and help me in processing all of the complex emotions that were unearthed before, during, and after my diagnosis and treatment. Because of that experience, I am passionate about providing the same support and assistance to others who are experiencing chronic pain or illness in navigating that road themselves.
