It can feel hard to discover therapeutic spaces where you'll find grace, compassion, and acceptance. I believe that everyone, regardless of background, family history or identity, deserves acceptance, love and peace of mind. I want my clients to feel seen, heard and important.
I'm committed to providing a safe and affirming environment for women to process their feelings, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable. I draw on different theoretical approaches to adapt my work to your needs, but work primarily from a feminist and strengths-based perspective. Clinically, I work with many presenting concerns including anxiety and stress, depression, LGBTQIA+, self-esteem, spirituality and religious trauma. I specialize in issues specific to queer women, diverse sex identities, and women who are at the intersection of multiple minority groups (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation). I provide services that are culturally sensitive to create an atmosphere of acceptance specific to the individual needs of every client.
Much like in my everyday life, I provide a non-judgmental approach to therapy. This creates a safer space for you to be your whole self, unapologetically, while allowing me the opportunity to better understand what you’re needing. I like to look at things through a holistic and spiritual lens; believing that there are many factors that affect our overall being. I find joy in helping women focus on their strengths and living life to the fullest.
