I aim to develop trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship, and to meet people wherever they presently sit on the continuum of identity development and self-acceptance. I firmly believe each person is the expert on their own experience, and cultivate a non-judgmental and welcoming space in the therapy room. I encourage and empower my clients to nurture and develop the internal and external resources they already possess, and to use those to cope with difficulties and struggles. I am passionate about working within the LGBTQ+ communities, and helping folks explore authenticity, leading them to create meaning and find value in their daily lives.
I work collaboratively with clients, incorporate body awareness, mindfulness, and a bit of humor, among other things. I guide my clients through the processes of integrating their held identities and navigating their connections to other people and the world around them in order to promote psychological well-being. Working with me, a client can expect to feel as though they are heard and cared for and that the therapy space is safe and non-judgmental. My integrative approach combines utilization of humanistic theory and real life experience to guide the healing and growth process. I encourage and empower clients to have agency in the process and work to help the client define and establish what success in the therapeutic space looks like.
