With a special focus on issues of neurodiversity, disability, gender exploration, and ethical non-monogamy, I am deeply committed to offering a comprehensive and affirming approach to mental health and well-being for individuals and relationship partners with a range of identities and goals. I proudly identify as queer, trans, disabled, neurodivergent, and polyamorous myself, and my therapeutic work has been enriched by my own lived experience as well as ongoing professional development in these areas. I have made it my mission to create a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate space where my teen and adult clients can explore their thoughts, emotions, and identities openly.
I firmly believe that everyone’s journey is valid and worthy of support. I work collaboratively with clients, helping them navigate the complexities of their lives, gain insight, and develop strategies to cope with challenges. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each individual’s needs and preferences, drawing from a range of evidence-based techniques and therapeutic modalities including cognitive, narrative, and emotionally-focused work. Through our journey together, my aim is to empower clients to harness their strengths, build resilience, and embrace their authentic selves.
In a world that is still evolving in its understanding and acceptance of diverse identities and experiences, I am committed to being a supportive presence in my clients’ lives. My goal is to not only provide effective therapy but also to contribute positively to the broader mental health landscape by promoting greater inclusivity, awareness, and empathy. Thank you for considering me as your potential therapist. I look forward to the opportunity to join you on your journey toward healing, growth, and self-discovery.
