My Ideal Client

I work with teens and adults battling anxiety, depression, trauma, and the pain of feeling unaccepted for who they are. I also stand firmly with the LGBTQIA+ community. Beyond that, my therapeutic compass guides those grappling with bipolar disorders, navigating the intricate webs of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and mourning the weight of grief.

My Background and Approach

My clients describe me as empathetic, affirming, and personable. You’ll experience a non-judgmental space to be yourself and embrace self-discovery. My therapeutic path involves an individualized approach tailored to your specific needs. Central to my approach is my belief in the importance of harmonizing the mind, body, and spirit, as individuals flourish when these elements are in sync. Together we will collaborate and set goals to help you reach them. We will help you become healthier and more empowered.

More About the People I Treat

My practice is inclusive, serving clients of various demographics, including individuals of all genders and religious backgrounds and members of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. My therapy is built on collaboration and unwavering support, ensuring you find a guiding hand in every step of your journey.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can include excessive worry, difficulty controlling worry, and difficulty relaxing. Anxiety can negatively impact all aspects of an individual's life and make day-to-day activities feel heavy.

  • Depression External link

    Depression can look different from person to person. While some people may experience prolonged sadness, others may experience loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyable or decreased motivation and fatigue.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Loss and grief can have profound effects on individuals. I can support you through any symptoms of grief you are experiencing.

  • PTSD External link

    I specialize in trauma and PTSD.
