Who I Help
You're likely here because your life isn't quite where you'd like it to be. You feel isolated, disconnected and frustrated. You're struggling with relationships. You're finding yourself reliving old patterns that are causing you pain. You've been trying to solve everything on your own but you're feeling stuck. You really need a space where you can talk through ALL of the jumbled up thoughts and feelings inside, because you're starting to feel like a pressure cooker.
"I am a failure."
"I am broken."
"I have nothing to offer."
"If I make changes, everyone will hate me."
"I can't change."
...Do these sound familiar?
I specialize in helping folks struggling with concerns surrounding gender identity and sexuality, trauma and PTSD, anxiety, self-esteem, and stress management.
What Can you Expect?
I'm a LGBTQIA+ and relationship affirming therapist specializing in trans and nonbinary wellness. I have significant experience providing supportive counseling to folks across the lifespan, and in and around the gender binary. In 2021, I obtained WPATH certification, which recognizes those committed to staying on top of both the current evidence and consensus in the field through continuing education--it's the gold standard of trans-specific healthcare certification.
I'm a staunch believer that all people have the resources inside themselves to make changes toward becoming ever more healthy, connected, and complex.
The focus of my approach is self-acceptance. This means that I'm not going to push you to talk about things you're not ready to talk about yet.
Instead, we'll make space for you to examine YOUR process toward making the changes YOU want in your life--because it's about damn time.
And "I can't change" is, well, bullsh*t.
